The BBSSSA Soccer U13 and U15 Championships were held at Cromer Park on Thursday 2 May. The standard of soccer was extremely high in both divisions and the Stella teams played amazingly!
The Stella U15 team were amazing all day! The level of skill in this team was outstanding. They started the day with an 8 – 0 win against St Brigid’s, and continued these impressive results throughout the pool games. Having a good win in the semi final against Mount St Benedict, they progressed through to the grand final against Mercy College. The team worked hard in defence in this game, and with the final siren the score was still 0 – 0. The game then went into a penalty shootout, which the Stella team won 4 – 3. Congratulations to this team on winning the BBSSSA Championships. Well done to Shay Hollman who was named Player of the Final. A big thank you to Elena Buono for coaching the team.
Our U13 team went through the pool games undefeated. They met a strong Mount St Benedict team in the semi-final, which resulted in a draw. Unfortunately this meant that the Stella team missed the grand final on a goal countback. They then played in the bronze medal game against St Leo’s, which they won 3 – 0. Well done to all members of the U13 team on a great day and thank you to Issy Stein for coaching the girls on the day.
