Cowboys Challenge – So Close!

On Friday 24 October 2014, the Holy Spirit College Open Girls Rugby League Team played magnificently at the Cowboys Schoolgirls Challenge.  The HSC Team was undefeated in the four games leading up to the Grand Final against Kirwan State High School.

The Semi-Final match against Mackay State High School saw HSC defeat them 4 tries to 1 which put them into the incredible game against the also undefeated Kirwan.  The Grand Final was neck-and-neck throughout and with the game locked at 6-all, and five seconds to go, Kirwan broke through the solid HSC defence line to put the ball over the line giving them the win by 1 try.

“It was a fantastic day and one we will all remember.  We thank our Team Manager, Mrs Kathy Mansfield, our Assistant Manager, Mrs Camille Geraghty, and our Coach, Jerrod Mackle,” said Lucy Cocks (Year 12 student and HSC Open Rugby League Team Member).

Mrs Kathy Mansfield, Team Manager, said “We are all so proud of the girls and the efforts they have made and the comradery they possess.”
