Update from Boys football mid-way through 2013 season

2013 BAS Season – 1st XVIII Football

Mid-Season Report

After 3 rounds of the BAS season the College Senior Boys Football team is well positioned.   With convincing wins by over 100 points against both Ballarat Grammar and Ballarat High School the team has now qualified for the next round of the Herald Sun Country Shield.


In the much anticipated first game against St. Pats the boys played with tremendous spirit and intensity which lead to St. Pats being constantly placed under immense pressure right from the first bounce.   A strong performance by the College midfield allowed the team to get on top in the clearances and move the ball quickly into or talented forward line.   After leading narrowly at half time the boys were unable to maintain the pressure in the 3rdquarter and eventually went down by 20 points at the final siren.


The month ahead sees our second matches against both Grammar and St. Pats plus the next match in the Herald Sun Country Shield game.  After a strong first round of games and a number of key players making a return from injury in the next few weeks the team is feeling confident about the rest of the season ahead.
