Football First XI:
This week’s match saw a Trinity derby against the Junior School team. As these boys both combined their skills and abilities a couple weeks ago in the North Coast, it was an opportunity for the boys who did not get the opportunity to go to show their raw talent. This game did not disappoint; the boys continued from end to end, fighting for possession through the middle of the field for the majority of the game. The Prep School boys utilised their communication and team-work skills to work together and immobilise the threatening attacks of the Junior School, with Sergio Rodriguez Chavez showcasing his raw shot stopping and tackling ability. The likes of Laurie Earnshaw made his season debut this week, returning from a lengthy injury and wasting no time to make an impact in the attacking front of Prep School, applying pressure to the Junior School defence and capitalising on their forced mistakes. Although the Prep School boys worked very well together and demonstrated their resilience and determination, the Junior School edged to victory, with the Prep School boys leaving the field with a 4-0 loss. Nonetheless, the boys should be very proud of the way they conducted themselves in the face of adversity.

Football Second XI:
This week’s match saw a Trinity derby against the Junior School team. Both teams utilised this opportunity to hold bragging rights over who is the best Trinity team. The game was very even throughout its entirety, with both teams engaging in copious amounts of chances, with the defence scrabbling to block any shots and goalkeepers attempting to maintain a clean sheet. Unfortunately, the Junior School edged two good goals with great ball movement. The Prep School boys, however, flaunted their fortitude in offense and defence, denying any opportunities for JS to attack throughout the end of the first half and the whole of the second half. In doing so, the Prep School boys earned themselves a penalty, in which Nikolas Harrow slotted the ball into the bottom corner, sending the JS goalkeeper the wrong way. As there were new faces in the Second XI this week, one would say the boys may have found it hard to gel together. On the contrary, the boys excelled in their teamwork, ball movement and communication, inviting all players into the team with open arms and working together to achieve a common goal. The match finished with a 2-1 loss to the Prep School. The boys should be heavily commended on their resilience and communication skills this week.

Football 10A’s (Year 4):
This week’s match saw Trinity verse an extremely strong Knox Grammar. The boys immediately began the game with no fear, taking it straight to Knox Grammar regardless of their record. They moved the ball forward throughout the first half, attempting to isolate their defenders and create pockets in which Frankie Nachabe was able to swivel his way through and create dramas in the Knox defence. Trinity’s defence had a great challenge this week, having to fend off the consistent attacking waves on Knox Grammar, forcing them out to the sides and throwing their bodies in the way of all shots made. The second half demonstrated Trinity’s immense resilience, keeping a clean sheet throughout and forcing the ball through the midfield that we controlled. The likes of Valentino Di Maria and Dylan Paskaranathan in the midfield, allowed for Trinity to fend off the strong attacking waves and create waves of our own, testing the Knox goalkeeper’s skills. Although the boys walked away with a loss, they should keep their heads held high. They showed incredible bravery and sheer determination in their gameplay which is something that cannot be taught by any coach to any type of player.
