Read more for the Round 2 wrap.
The 1st XI dominated against Brisbane State High School on Saturday but despite having eight chances to score, lost 0-1, with BSHS scoring the only goal from their three opportunities. Our boys need to be more ruthless in front of goal to regain the winning form they showed in preseason.
It was a tough week for Terrace across all ages against BSHS, with 8 wins, 14 losses and 6 draws. On the upside, let's not forget Terrace won Round 1 against Nudgee College across all ages, with 21 wins, 16 losses and 4 draws.
The stand-out player has been James Leech (playing with the 2nd XI last weekend), who scored 3 goals against Nudgee and another hat trick against BSHS.
Be there to cheer the lads on!
The later game time for the Firsts will allow supporters to stay on for the Term 2 Sport Season Launch, which kicks off at 5pm. Although bookings officially closed on Tuesday, we anticipate some people will have simply forgotten to buy their ticket ($30 for adults with a delicious two-course meal, and free for kids, with pizza and soft drink) so we will accept some late arrivals. See you there.
