GBC Sports Results: Saturday, 6 May 2023
On Saturday 6th May, TSAC played against Staines Memorial College away at their campus. Our netballers were based at the Springfield sport complex. We achieved four out of six wins on the netball courts. Our Senior 1sts and 2nds won their games convincingly and should be proud of their commitment towards school sport this term. The senior netballers are leading by example and are role models to our junior athletes. In soccer, our Junior 1sts team are sitting top of the GBC ladder. This week, goals were shared amongst many members of the Juniors team namely: Lilly Glode, Annika McAuley, Lailah Beattie, Selina Paluri, Caitlin Jurss & Shaye McKenzie. Our touch football seniors had a positive win which will boost their confidence going in against Faith this weekend. Our intermediate touch team won 6-2 with many tries being distributed amongst the team namely: Ethan Dobbs, Hongming Sui (x2), Josh Milne, Ethan Piovesana & Benjamin Laryea. Our junior and intermediate cricket teams had two strong wins vs Staines. Mr Whitehorne’s technical bowling training session was applied successfully to game play.
We play Faith Lutheran College, Plainland this Saturday. We look forward to continued support as we move closer to finals.

On Saturday, TSAC hosted the second round of the GBC Primary Touch Football Competition. Our Year 3/4 Team were first to take the field against Redeemer Lutheran. It was amazing to see such a large number of our junior players keen to participate. TSAC walked away as close victors. Improvement is seen every week from our youngest competitors. I’m excited to report their progress for the rest of the season.
Our 5/6 Teams were dealt a tough hand. With River mount having to pull out their team late Friday against TSAC Red. This didn’t stop our amazing students from participating. A big thank you to Staines Memorial College who had players willing to stay back and play a second game to give our TSAC students a good run around. TSAC Blue’s game went ahead as planned against SMC Gold. TSAC were victors with Eamon Alexander scoring on the final buzzer.
I also want to thank the local Touch Club the “Springfield Stingers” who helped us on the today by providing us with 3 amazing referees from their club. We want to thank those refs for taking time out of their Saturday to support our school.
Next week’s Fixture will be played at River mount. We wish all our Touch Teams the best of luck. GO TERRIERS!!

The 3/4 TSAC Primary Indoor Cricket team took on Redeemer Lutheran College in an early match on Saturday morning. After a really strong week at training, we really connected together to show some fantastic cricket and even better sportsmanship. I am incredibly proud of the work our coach and players have put in and their dedication and passion for the game is second to none! Liam showed great courage as wicket keeper, while the Lincoln brothers Dominic and Raphael, displayed great skill in all facets of the game. Ian and Aakrish were swinging the ball making it challenging for the opposition while Viaan was solid in the crease. Congratulations 3/4 Cricket Team, what an excellent start to the GBC Season!
With a later start, there were many keen and interested spectators gathering around to watch what promised to a very close battle, and they were not disappointed! It was a very even contest and great cricket was played by both teams. Klaudia’s dedication at training has paid off as she is showing tremendous growth in her bowling while Cooper and Oliver were showing great hustle between the wickets. Claire and Eddy made a strong partnership, using their skills and experience to creep up the run rate. Charlotte was dangerous in the field and showed great sportsmanship in supporting her team and the opposition. Angus and Samarth were also strong in batting, scoring some great runs, watching the ball directly on the bat. It was an incredible battle between TSAC and Rivermount College, where great sportsmanship and the spirit of competition was of the highest quality! Congratulations 5/6 Cricket Team, we are very proud of your efforts!
