A few pics of the boys at the War Memorial in Canberra.
All the Boys, Coach Burgess and Bus Driver “Pauly P” have made it safely back to the Stanmore Campus with the IBC trophy.
The boys have strengthen their friendships and have a much better understanding of each others play…..bring on the GPS season!
The boys next play against Trinity College, Summer Hill in the A J Rae shield, check the playing time, one not to miss!
This game will determine the tournament winner. This is a game that NC must win to take the trophy anything else and it goes back with the previous champions to Brisbane.
The referee blows time on at 11:32AM and both teams are trying to settle into their style and routines. Continue reading St Peter’s College v Newington College
Game 5– July 5, 2012
This tournament on the final day sees NC out in front by one point but the competition is still wide open. A win to the Brisbane boys can see them retain the trophy if NC draw or lose the following game so this is a game that is shaping up to be a cracker. BGS scored 6 goals yesterday and CGS have only allowed one goal in all tournament, so it’s the best attacking team v the best defensive team. Continue reading Canberra Grammar v Brisbane Grammar
Game 3 – July 4, 2012
This game of the tournament will see the Winners of Game 1 play the losers of Game 2. Can Brisbane Grammar come back with a win after what may turn out to be the game of the tournament yesterday?
The referee blows time on at 9:31AM and BGS start in a similar way, early pressure resulting with a shot on goal in the second minute only to be denied by the post. The ball has been cleverly worked up the field and an opportunity presents itself for a low drive to the left upright, easily taken by the keeper. Continue reading Brisbane Grammar v St Peter’s College
Referee blows time on at 11:30AM and the game Immediately takes on a casual feel. Both teams are happy to sit back and watch the other team until they press and present a problem to deal with/fix. Newington start to build by stringing many passes together and are happy to go backwards to keep possession. Continue reading Canberra Grammar v Newington College
Game 2 – July 3, 2012
The stage has been set, this is the game that Mr Burgess has primed the boys for. The standard of the first game set a high benchmark and both teams are going through their warmups with a match like intensity.
The referee blows time on at 11:29 AM. BGS take an initial stranglehold of the ball and set up camp in the NC defensive third. Some imaginatively play saw the ball go across the box and with an excellent read Thomas Greeley turned defence into attack, running the ball through the midfield to set up a series of shots on goal. The BGS defenders held and the scoreline remains 0-0. What a start, we are in for a cracker! Continue reading Newington College v Brisbane Grammar
With ice still covering the south western corner of the ground the referees make their way to he center of the main oval on this bbrrrrbrisk morning, did I mention that it was minus 5 at 6AM. Continue reading Canberra Grammar v St Peter’s College
Day 2 – Run around the lake
Did I mention brrrrr, The run started at 6AM in the dark and minus 5. You know its cold when steam is pouring out the the drains and black ice is scattered on the cycle / running paths. The run went from Canberra Grammar down to Lake Burley Griffith then headed west along the shore line until the second bridge. Crossing the bridge then around the northern edge of the lake to the Carillion then back across the first bridge then along the lakes edge then past Telopea Park School and back to Canberra Grammar via the Manuka Shopping strip.
Stephen and Chappy took the lead with the pool table (pictured). V and Mo had a late night trying to win a game against the Keeper and the Bus Driver, sadly they went to bed 0-4 down. Maybe next time boys….. Continue reading Monday Night Pool
