In one of the most physical and spectacular matches of the 2021 season, Rostrevor's First XVIII took it up to a strong Sacred Heart side in a gritty, hard-fought game that showcased some incredible College football talent. Although the match went Sacred Heart's way (11-11-77 to 9-8-62), the score didn't tell the full story. What spectators and Rostrevor's vocal Red & Black Army witnessed was a determined and courageous group of young Rostrevor men, guided by Coach James Allan, who stood together, didn't give up and played some of the finest fightback footy of the year - winning the second half of the match (6-4-40 to 3-6-24).
Congratulations to back-to-back Intercol medalist Tyson Walls (Vice Captain) who put his body on the line at every opportunity to help Rostrevor wrestle its way back into the match. Special mention must also go to Captain Jayden Gale and Deputy Vice Captain Alastair Lord who not only shone on the field, but provided great leadership when it was needed most.
Rostrevor spirit and talent was out in force across the fields, court and ovals, with our Middle Years Soccer teams performing particularly well. Click the image below to view the team photos and medalists for the various sports here:
