There were some fantastic results from last weekend’s sport. Firsts Soccer defeated PEGS and continue their charge towards a finals birth, while Firsts Hockey had their first win of the season against a fast and furious Ivanhoe. The Cross Country team performed well at Yarra Bend Park, with Tom Bowers (Year 11, Senior), Jimmy Smith (Year 10, Intermediate), Harrison Car (Year 7, Junior) and Jack Dobbyn (Year 8, Junior) all achieving top 10 finishes in their respective races. The Fencing squad had another competition on Sunday and two of our Junior teams did exceptionally well. Julian Lim, Colin Joshi, Jim Zhu (all Year 7) and Luke Nguyen (Year 9) combined to win the Junior Schools League Epee, beating Trinity in the final, while the team of Akalanka Gunawardana (Year 9), Ming Han Low (Year 9) and Steven Lu (all Year 9) took out third place. We are about to enter a busy period with a host of extra-curricular activities occurring during Week 7 and an examination period. Despite that, the Sport program will continue as normal and students are expected to train as scheduled, other than Week 7 and the Queen’s Birthday weekend. During that time, only Firsts teams will train. Students should confirm details with the Teacher-In-Charge of their team if they are unsure about their commitments. The final round of Sport this Term for all teams, other than Firsts Football and Soccer, will be on Saturday 15 June. The season will recommence in Term 3. We have been blessed with fantastic weather so far this season, but it appears winter is truly upon us with rain and colder temperatures forecast. A reminder to refer to the Uniform Booklet on the Parent Portal to ensure your son is wearing the appropriate uniform for their sport. Some students are still wearing outdated uniform. Also, students should refrain from wearing non-CGS clothing when representing the School. If you have any concerns or questions regarding Sport, contact the staff member in charge of your son’s team or to contact the Director of Sport at

Sport Report The Third Blue Football team had a resounding win over PEGS to record two straight wins for the season. Jasper Fodor and Joshua Pollocks (both Year 11) led the team in defensive intensity as they laid countless tackles and desperately fought for numerous second effort opportunities. In the forward line, Harry Rice (Year 11) starred, kicking six goals on the back of great run and carry by the midfield led by Kosta Froutzis (Year 11), who himself kicked five goals. Camberwell continued their dominant performance from start to finish as the team finished 137 point winners. The Futsal Gold team had a very high scoring encounter against Trinity as they looked for their first win for the season. Camberwell came out strongly as the boys scored three early goals to put themselves in the box seat for the rest of the game. However, with a lapse in intensity from Camberwell, Trinity took full advantage, tying the scores at the half. Ray Son and Henry Sutton (both Year 12) combined brilliantly in the second half as they kicked 6 of Camberwell’s 8 goals. The team ultimately came away comfortable winners. The 9A Hockey team faced a very competent PEGS opponent on the weekend to continue their incredibly successful season so far. Manhar Singh scored the two very quick goals thanks to team play by the forwards, led by Ethan Aw and Connor Laird (all Year 9). The boys continued to press hard on both the defensive and offensive ends, leading to four more Camberwell goals from Hamish Campbell-Cowan (Year 9) and Connor Laird. The final score ended as 6-0 Camberwell’s way with plenty of positives to take out of the game heading into the next round. In a winner-gets-top-spot clash against PEGS, the First XI Soccer team knew they would have to bring their best efforts to finish victors. Camberwell got out to an unbelievably quick start, scoring the first two goals in under ten minutes with great finishes from Lachie Waycott (Year 11) and the ever-reliable Tristan Patsiotis (Year 12). The rest of the half was completely in Camberwell’s control as chances kept coming the team’s way. Coming out after half-time, the team started where they left off as Chris Han (Year 12) headed the ball into the back of the net with absolute precision. Despite conceding a late goal, Camberwell were able to cruise to a 3-1 win to position themselves a game clear in the top spot on the ladder. Good luck to all teams in this week’s round of sport.
