Mazenod Juniors finished second in the South Finals to earn a spot in the SSWA All Schools Grand Final.
After winning the Hills Division of the SSWA Junior Basketball Competition in week 5 they advanced to the South Finals. Placed in a tough group with several schools boasting scholarships and basketball programs Mazenod proved to be a tough match. Mazenod won 4 of the 5 group games they played.
First up Mazenod beat Comet Bay 28-19, followed by a 24-16 win against Lumen Christi before succumbing to perennial powerhouses Willetton 26-15. Mazenod overcame a scare against St Norberts, despite finding ourselves 10-0 up within two minutes, Norberts hit back almost as quickly in a fantastic game for the spectators. Mazenod did enough to hold out for a 34-31 win. The final group game saw Mazenod win 33-19 against Seton College.
These results saw us secure second place in our group and a semi final game against Rockingham. In another good game Mazenod ran out winners to see us play Willeton in the South of the River Grand Final. Sadly again the strength of Willeton was too much for us as Willeton ran out rightful winners.
Finishing second in the South division sees us heading to Bendat Stadium on Monday 16 September to play the second placed team in the Northern division for the All Schools title.
Y10 House Basketball Competition
Over the past term and a bit, Year 10 have had a 3v3 basketball competition going on. This is one of the best House events at Mazenod with a strong turn out each year. This year the Year 10’s had a total of 24 teams, 9 participating from Cebula. It was a good first few rounds of the competition with strong showings from Tempier 1, Cebula 1, Cebula 3 and Grandin 1, with Grandin 1 being heavy favorites going into the later rounds. Eventually Tempier 1 with Zane Struthers, Kyden Roberts and Max Tangney went on to upset Grandin 1 (Jason Moore, Kiarn Linaker and Jack Jago) in a 11 to 10 victory in the semifinals, with Max Tagney hitting a deep contested 3 pointer for the win.
The other Semifinals match was held in the gym on Thursday lunchtime of Week 6 with Cebula 1 winning over Cebula 3. This game started to look like a blow out with Matthew Schilling, Eli Jarvis and Hamish O’Neil firing on all cylinders with a score of 10 to 0. Cebula 3 with Aaron Trust, Steven Midd and Keegan Victor had other ideas and brought the game back to within two points. Eli Jarvis decided to take matters into his own hands driving and scoring a layup to move on to the Grand Final vs Tempier 1.
The grand final was held in the gym during Thursday assembly the same day. The game was off to a good start with neither team giving an inch in a very tight contest. Eventually, Matthew Schilling caught fire scoring 4 buckets in a row, his streak ended only when Kyden Roberts scored a layup to cut the lead to 3 and provided Tempier with some hope. Matthew eventually drove in for the layup and got fouled hard. He got the ball from the top and drove in again, this time scoring the layup to secure Cebula the 3v3 title with a 11 to 7 win over Tempier.
Year 7 WAFC v Darling Range Sporting College
Yesterday the Year 7 WAFC football team travelled to Darling Range Sports College to play in the WAFC competition. With both teams undefeated in the competition it was going to be a tough game, however Mazenod dominated the game from start to finish, running out winners 4.5 (29) vs DRSC 1.2 (8). Big thanks to Mr Floyd for coaching the team on the day and to all the parents who travelled to the game to support the boys. Our next game is against Helena College next Wednesday 11th September.
