Bill Turner Cup - Soccer

On Friday 10th May, our U15 girls and boys soccer teams travelled to Kawana to compete in the 2019 Bill Turner Cup and Trophy. This is a one-day round-robin where the winning team in each group goes through to the next round. The boys played a challenging first game against Chancellor, where they conceded 2 goals despite some hard defending and some good opportunities in attack. They went on to win their next two games, finishing second in their group to face Maroochydore State School in the playoff for third place. Maroochydore put up a good fight, but couldn’t stop the STCC attack or break the defensive line of Seb Hayes, Kieran A’herne-Evans, Ryan Bauer and Max Abbott. Steele Wiltshire was top goal scorer for St Teresa’s with the entire team gelling well on the day and supporting each other.
The girls beat St Johns 2-0 in their first game, with both goals scored by Charlie Shanahan. However, an unfortunate penalty against stalwart defender Lily Payne allowed Kawana to get ahead in game two, which finished in a 4-0 loss for STCC. A strong win in game three against Maroochydore girls saw the girls also finish second in their group and finish 4th place overall after losing in the final to an experienced Glasshouse Christian College team. This is a great result for the girls, many of whom are new to the sport.
All students played in good spirit and showed true Teresian qualities on the day. Thanks to the teachers involved in training and leading the day and to Amy Allom (groundswoman) and Jayde Lacey in Year 10 for their coaching support.
