Friday 26th August
Woodend hosted round 2 of the boys Football on Friday 26th August.  We played against Colonel Light Gardens and Tatachilla.
Game 1 the boys played against Colonel Light Gardens who were an outstanding football team. It was excellent to see the boys work really hard and they battled for the next three quarters after Colonel Light got off to a flying start kicking 8 goals to 0 in the first quarter.
Final score:
Colonel Light Gardens – 19 goals, 8 points = 120
Woodend – 1 goal, 2 points = 8
Game 2 the boys played against Tatachilla and really improved their team play and were able to match it with Tatachilla for the whole game. The Woodend boys were a few points up with 3 minutes to go and unfortunately Tatachilla got 2 late goals to win the match by 11 points.
Final score:
Woodend – 8 goals, 11 points = 59
Tatachilla – 11 goals, 4 points = 70
Well done to the Woodend team for making it into round 2 of the competition and with 16 x Year 5 boys able to come out again next year and improve their skills.

Leni, Andie, Malaika, Sophie, Harry, Mackenzie and Hamish.
They all did an outstanding job and had some very positive results.

Leni had a successful day coming 2nd in the 200m, 1st in the 800m and 1st in the 1500m.
We would particularly like to thank Mr Hehner for all his organisation, coaching and support.  He ensures our Woodend students not only have the opportunity to participate in the numerous SAPSASA events but they “have a go”, be a supportive team member and feel successful. On behalf of the Woodend community, thank you Mr Hehner.
