Round 3 delivered a terrific result for Terrace Football, with the 1st XI celebrating a solid win against ACGS. Both teams displayed a senior style of football, with counter-attacking skills that impressed football supporters of all levels. James Leech repaid his coach and team mates for his start in the 1st XI by putting pressure on the Churchie goalkeeper, then pouncing on the keeper’s error to slot home our first goal. A set play for Terrace allowed Oscar Sullivan to beat the off side trap and, at the far post, pick up a loose ball which he slotted with confidence. Later in the game, Churchie clawed back one goal, but Terrace held out and played with control and discipline to bring home their first win of the season. We’re looking to repeat that performance this weekend against BGS at home. The enthusiastic support from the GT Army and other spectators helped to lift the team over the line and we hope to see more of that going forward.
The Senior teams had a fantastic weekend, with wins across the board.
- 1st XI: 2-1 win
- 2nds: 2-1 win
- 3rds: 4-2 win
- 4ths: 2-0 win
- 5ths: 3-0 win
- Year 11: 4 wins, 2 draws
- Year 10: 3 wins, 3 losses
- Year 9: 4 wins, 1 draw, 2 losses
- Year 8: 5 wins, 1 draw
- Year 7: 4 wins, 2 draws, 2 losses
- Year 6: 2 wins, 1 draw, 1 loss
- Year 5: 2 wins, 2 losses
Terrace finished with 22 wins, 6 draws and 10 losses against Churchie and 28 wins, 7 draws and 10 losses overall.
This sensational result was a fitting way to officially kick-off the season, with the Term 2 Sports Launch on Saturday night a resounding success. Students and their parents from Football, Cross Country, Tennis and Gymnastics enjoyed an evening of fine food and great entertainment, including the Terrace band whose swing numbers impressed the crowd.

Our Round 3 clash was another impressive result for both our 1st IV and 2ND IV tennis teams.
Our 1st IV boys swept through the Churchie team without dropping a set. All four boys were impressive in both their singles and double matches this week. Stephen Stoddart was almost flawless for the match dropping only 3 games in 6 sets of tennis. Xavier Lim on debut in the 1st team also performed extremely well winning all three of his match dropping only 6 games for the day.
We have traditionally had very close matches with Churchie but this year was different. Our boys are match hardened and have been a core group of players now for more than three seasons. They showed much better combinations in doubles and executed their singles plays with power and precision.
The Final score was 8 – 16 – 96 to 0 – 0 -12. Our boys now sit on top of the GPS ladder with 3 wins from 3 matches.
Our 2ND IV have also become a team to be reckoned with. They also sit on the top of the table at 3 and 0 for the season. The form of these boys has been just as impressive as the 1st IV boys. With Eddie Brockhurst coming into the team this week adding guile and maturity our boys dominated from the start of the match. Two of our younger boys Charlie Van Balen and Dominic Anderson have gone through the season barely dropping games in singles. Charlie won 1 and 1 while Dom was flawless in another 0 and 0 score line.
The final score was 5 – 11 – 73 to 1 – 2 – 34.
This week we play a much tougher team in BGS. My message to our entire program is, we need to focus on competing and trusting / executing the processes we have been putting in place in training. (PLAY YOUR GAME.)
