Last week saw the GHA host a mixed hockey Interschool. Loreto Convent competed in a Year 7 tournament which consisted of a round robin competition with Westside, Bayside and Prior Park all entering two teams. First up was Bayside B whom were beaten 2-0 with goals from Sebastien Gorny and Benny Hill. Next, Loreto came up against a very experienced Westside A and although having much of the possession, it was Westside A who narrowly got the victory 1-0. However, Loreto reacted in great fashion and followed this up with 3 wins in their next three games. A 5-0 victory over Prior Park B, goals scored by; Benny Hill, Rafa Munoz Alarcon, Isabel Simpson, Sofia Hillman Rota and Caitriona McGrath.
Next a 2-1 win against Bayside A, with goals by Sebastien Gorny and Teresa Garcia Orellana. Then, an excellent team performance against Prior Park A in a high scoring game with a 10-0 result. Teresa Garcia Orellana was very impressive scoring a hat trick along with braces for Isabel Simpson and Ruby Isola and other goals coming from Benny Hill, Sebastien Gorny and Caitriona McGrath. There was some great hockey being played by all involved and some of these goals were a result of a great team plays. Loreto’s final game pitted them against Westside A, and still with a chance to become champions. However, it wasn’t mean to be, and a final 0-0 result meant Loreto finished in a respectable 3rd position and picked up their medals subsequently. Furthermore, there were other awards picked up by some of our players with Benny Hill picking up Best Player and Teresa Garcia Orellana picking up Most Promising.
