Great results for Soccer Specialist students

Congratulations to the Year 7/8 Junior Boys Team who won the State Championship last Monday (10/9/18) beating John Curtin at Dalmatinac Park.

After a nervous start John Curtin went ahead through a penalty in the dying minutes of the first half. The second half saw Woodvale asserting and we were soon awarded a penalty kick with Aiki T scoring. Woodvale made another quick reply doubling our score and taking the lead with a great long range goal by Daniel Z. The winning goal was scored by Jacob E to put us in a strong position for the rest of the game. A great effort by all concerned for our first Junior title since 2015. 

 

A special thanks to all the parents, staff and community who supported the boys throughout the year I look forward to your continued support as the players move forward.

Congratulations to the Junior Girls A and B teams as they reached the Champion Schools semi-final this year. The Junior Girls A progressed to the grand final and played a strong John Curtin team losing narrowly by one goal to nil. Hilla B was the standout player on the day with an outstanding display in goal. This was a massive achievement to get two Woodvale teams in the last four in the State.

  

The Senior girls reached the Northern Final and were beaten by a very strong Mercy College. They have played some excellent football throughout the year and have been a credit to our College.

The Senior Boys Team represented Woodvale in the State Shield final competing against Wesley College on Tuesday (11/9/18). It was a fantastic competition on the field that was closely contested, and the physicality and skill of both teams’ senior players was on show. After trailing 2 - 0, Woodvale fought back to be 2 - 1 at half time but just couldn't hit the back of the net before the final whistle. The students, some playing their last game for our school, were a credit to our community and the Soccer Specialist Program.

Both Junior and Senior squads reached the final after having competed against 120 state and private schools, and we couldn't be prouder of their achievements during the 2018 season. 

Bring on 2019 ⚽ Tony Ratcliff and Paddy Rooney
