‘TWAS a beautiful day for play with most Chev teams playing at home.
All of the school netball, hockey, rugby and girls soccer teams played in a busy morning of sport.
Most of the netballers had a good morning with some great shooting, just like the Swifts and Firebirds.
The firsts expected a much closer game than what eventuated.
On the lovely new court surface they totally outplayed Central Coast and a five point round one winning score line ended in a 50 point win at home.
In a really good team effort, it was difficult to single out any individuals, but Clover Menzies was on fire under the net.
Special mention to all the umpires who made sure the games were played and the rules abided by.
They do a great job every week.
In the hockey, there were plenty of goals in all matches except the firsts.
A 0-0 stalemate between Chev and arch rivals Central Coast.
The possession was mostly in Chev’s favour and plenty of chances were created, but near misses were the order of the day.
Coach Tony Sewll was very happy with the team performance and said the girls kept improving each week and would continue to do so.
In the rugby, Chev hosted Redlands and all matches were good contests except the firsts, which was a very one-sided affair.
Chev started well and the tries flowed freely.
It was great to have Blake Pittolo back from injury and the entire pack rolled forward all day.
Lachlan Huntington had a good day with the boot, kicking at least a dozen goals.
In the girls soccer the firsts played quite well, but St Andrews took its chances.
The Chev girls are having trouble finding the back of the net, unlike the seconds and thirds that can’t stop scoring.
Tayla Adcock did a good job filling in as keeper in the firsts and Laura Veness never stopped running.
For the travellers, the tennis Firsts had a really good win against St Pats.
Gabbi Murphy and Sam Crittendeden were just too good for their opponents.
In the boys soccer at St Pauls the 14s, 16s and Firsts were winners.
The firsts got home 2-1 with goals from Taylor Delahunty and Peter Majetic.
So round six has been completed and students take a break until July 18 when the ISA competition resumes.
Most Chev teams are doing really well in the respective competitions.
