Senior Boys Soccer

Well done to the Carramar Senior Boys Soccer Team, who won the Champion Schools Shield Final for Western Australia on Tuesday 12 September. The game came at the end of two terms of group and knock out games, taking place with the other state finals at Dalmatinac Park in Hamilton Hill. The game saw us take on Lynwood Senior High School.  We took the lead after 3 minutes with a headed goal from a corner and then followed this up with two more goals before half time. Lynwood came out after halftime fired up and managed to pull a goal back inside the first two minutes of the second half. They then scored a second with about 15 minutes to go. However, we fought back and scored our fourth to put the game beyond reach and held them out to finish the game the winners 4 – 2. 


Congratulations boys!

Year 8 & 9 Girls AFL Dockers Cup


Thursday 7 September,  20 girls from Year 8 & 9 competed in the West Perth District Dockers Cup for girls.  For the majority of the girls, this was the first time that they have played in any structured AFL competition.  Playing in Division B, the girls easily accounted for their rivals in the early rounds before facing some strong opposition from Mater Dei in the final round.  With a late goal, the girls were able to escape with a narrow win and go through to the round robin phase undefeated.  The grand final would see the girls play a rematch against Mater Dei and the game was similar to the earlier game.  Kicking with the breeze first, the girls were unable to take their chances but with a goal just before half time they had a narrow lead at the half time break.  Both sides were evenly matched in the first half,  but our girls eventually gained a two goal advantage into the breeze and were able to hold on until the final siren.  Although there was a minor mix up at the presentations the girls were able to collect the Free Dockers Shield as undefeated champions. Brooke Hurst received the award for best St Stephens player over the day, although all of the girls contributed to the wonderful result.

Congratulations and well done girls!
