Past vs Present

Juliet Dunlop-Fraser —

The annual Past vs Present event was held on the first Saturday of the holidays.

Although there was no Girls' Football this year, it was exciting to see two new matches with Past Girls' Volleyball and Past Boys' Basketball taking on the Present. 

The day kicked off with Girls' Hockey and for the first time  the Girls 1st XI took out the Old Girls 4-3 in a tough match. Next door the Senior A Netball team was also beating the Netball Old Girls with a final score of 2-0.

Boys' Football was a different story with the Past Boys' Football team too strong for the Present, winning 4-1. Over on the rugby field a wonderful well-spirited game saw the closest score for some time with the Past achieving a win , (40-24).  Old Girls' Volleyball beat the Senior A . 

Back out on the turf Boys' Hockey was won easily by the strong Boys' 1st XI. This left the match score 3-3 and deadlocked with Boys' Basketball to be the decider. In Basketball the Past were beaten by the Senior A team in a fast and furious match giving the Cup to the Present for the first time since 2008.
