First XVIII Football
With the chants of the Red & Black army reverberating around the Big Mem, the First XVIII got off to a great start with the teams on level pegging at half time. A stronger Sacred Heart pulled away in the final quarter winning 12.16.88 to 7.5.47 but, despite the result, Intercol was again a great spectacle of talent, tradition, sportsmanship and passion for the Red and Black.

Intercol Day 1: Wednesday 9th September


With an eruption of Red and Black songs, banners, scarves and skills, the 97th Year of Intercol got underway at Campbelltown City Soccer Club with our 9As winning 6 - 1; our Second XI going down 0 - 2 and a stunning 5 - 0 victory for Rostrevor's First XI soccer team yesterday. Congratulations to all the players and First XI coach Terry Frangakis. Rostrevor would like to thank the Campbelltown City Soccer Club for hosting several of our Intercol matches this year.

The atmosphere was electric, the Red & Black chants were deafening and the result was so close as our Open A basketballers narrowly missed bringing home the Shanahan/Turner Cup with a 43 - 43 draw. The Open B team was defeated 32 - 49. It was an incredible effort by the boys in our Open A and B sides, both admirably coached by Mr Peter Steel and managed by Mr Luke Salini. Our Midde As (Years 8 and 9) secured a thrilling 57 - 53 win in the final moments of the game.

Crows premiership skipper Mark Bickley to commentate Rostrevor v Sacred Heart Intercol

Rostrevor College First XVIII Captain Xavier Tranfa joined Sacred Heart, The Advertiser and Crows premiership captain Mark Bickley on the Big Memorial Oval this week to promote the Adelaide Now livestream of the Firxt XVIII Intercol match, which will feature live commentary by Mark Bickley and Advertiser Sport Reporter Daniela Abbracciavento, at 2:15pm on Saturday, September 12.

Xavier was featured on Page 3 of The Advertiser on Friday, September 11 in an article with Mark Bickley, who skippered Adelaide to its 1997-98 grand final wins. He told The Advertiser: "It's something really special to South Australia - the rivalry between colleges - and this is a big weekend for the guys, their families and all the students."

He said College footy was a breeding ground for the professional ranks. "You think about the two teams, they've got rich history, they've got plenty of players who've been drafted and doing great things at AFL level," Mr Bickley said.

Xavier said the excitement around Intercol was building every day in the lead up to the game. "It's an honour to play in the intercol and it's a dream come true for everyone who plays footy. Not many of the boys have played in games that have been live streamed or commentated before, so the first two minutes will probably feel a bit surreal. But after that we just get to play footy."
