Term 4 has already seen the Strathmore Secondary College interschool hockey teams compete at the Western Metro Regional Finals.
The Junior Girls (Year 7 & 8) competed at Footscray Hockey Club on Tuesday 30th October and were exemplary representatives of the school in the way they conducted themselves on the day. Our first game was against Williamstown and we won 7-0, with Lily Pelosi leading the way scoring 4 goals herself. The girls then squared off against Maribyrnong Sports Academy, going down 4-1 but showing some excellent team work.
The Intermediate Girls were then out on Thursday that week and they came runners up to Maribyrnong in the Western Metro final, 4-1. The girls showed tremendous spirit and fantastic sportsmanship all day, which was reflected in their enjoyment and fun factor both on, and off the field. SSC had to overcome a determined Suzanne Cory team in the final round of the pool matches, including a tense penalty shoot out to advance to the final. Well done to Niamh on stepping up to take on goalkeeping duties and all the girls involved. Fantastic effort!
