After a big week of sport, two Glennie Junior teams travelled down to Redlands to play in the Primary All Schools Touch Competition.
The B team had a great start to competition with two convincing wins. The girls then came up against a well-drilled Coast team which unfortunately resulted in a loss. This meant that the girls finished 2nd in their pool and progressed through to the Cup Finals round. On Sunday the girls played All Hallows in the first round of finals, a must-win to move forward. Unfortunately the All Hallows team were just too good for us, however, the girls finished the game with pride and played their best. Congratulations girls.
The A team had a wonderful first day, coming away with three wins, putting them into the Championship finals round. The girls had a big job to do on Sunday against a team that was much more developed. The girls played well and finished the game with a draw. This took the game into a drop-off, a super exciting time for all spectators. The four girls chosen for the drop off played with so much maturity and this showed in the first set when we scored. Unfortunately, the opposition scored against us, which meant the next try scorer won the game. Safe to say, Glennie did not have luck on its side and unfortunately we lost this game.
Congratulations girls, you held your heads high and showed true grace.
Thank you to Mr Pete Naumann and Miss Abbie Prendergast for sharing your amazing knowledge with our girls and coaching them through an amazing tournament. Thank you to the parents for allowing your daughters to come to the competition and supporting them throughout the season.
