On Thursday 9th August the St Dominic’s Under 14’s Rugby League team went to the Elite School State Cup competition.

We played Endeavour Sports High, Caringbah in our first game. It was tough and a strong defensive game from both teams. In the end we kicked a penalty goal to have a 2-0 victory.

Our 2nd game was against a much bigger opposition from Hill Sports High, Seven Hills. In this game we were outclassed and went down 18-0. Wen went into the 3rd game knowing if we could beat Hunter Sports High we would make the semi-finals. In a tough game we came away with a 10-6 victory.

This put us into a semi-final against Westfields Sport High, Fairfield. We weren’t in the greatest shape carrying many injuries from the hard games earlier in the day. Unfortunately, we were out-muscled by an extremely bigger team and went down 14-0.

Our day was over, but we were proud of the fact that we finished in the top 4 of the State’s Elite Rugby League teams and were the highest ranked non-sporting specialist school in the state.

Thanks to Mr Drummond for coaching us this season and on the day and a big thanks to the boys from the Under 13’s who played up an age to assist at the carnival.
