Knox Grammar certainly showed its best colours on Saturday with a sensational weekend of sport against Barker College. The spirit on show, the support around all of the fields and the sportsmanship after some wins and some losses was a real credit to the boys, the parents and their coaches. The singing and chanting in the stand all weekend was a real credit to the spirit within this School.



It all began under lights on Friday evening with two sensational games of Football. The Firsts defeated Barker 3-0 in a superb display of skill and determination. With the title up for grabs and a massive crowd under lights, it was the perfect setting for a big victory over Barker. The team is primed for one last big effort against Waverley at 10.15am on Saturday (at Queens Pk) and any support would be greatly appreciated.

Our Rugby teams on Saturday were superb winning a large majority of games against Barker and winning the annual Headmasters Cup. Our 1st XV, in front of a huge crowd, were very brave but were defeated in the final moments. The title of CAS champions for 2017 is still up for grabs and they will give it everything against Waverley this weekend and finish off a memorable season. There were many great performances in all age groups against Barker and these are highlighted in the Rugby report below.

Let’s not forget the efforts of so many Year 12 boys that will be playing their last game of sport for Knox this weekend. The emotions will be high and they would love any support we can give them one last time. Many of the boys started way back in the Prep School and have had a great journey, representing Knox with distinction. Regardless of what team they have been selected in, or what sport those chose to commit to, they have given their all for their team mates and we are all very proud of this Year 12 group of men. THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES FELLAS!



I was fortunate to watch some Fencing at the Prep School on Saturday. One of those unique sports that may not be mainstream, or given the amount of press it deserves but the boys were very focussed and extremely well led by coach, Mr Santangelo. Fencing is a sport that requires fast reactions, combined with strength and conditioning and one of few sports that has been part of the modern Olympics since 1896. Extremely underrated here in Australia and well worth considering, I would encourage boys to try Fencing if they believe they have some of the above attributes.

Knox vs Barker CAS Round 9
Friday night under lights had Knox 1st X1 soaking up the atmosphere provided by the mass supporter base braving the cold to cheer the boys on. Keen to assert their authority on the competition, the boys started the game with finesse in attack. Shawn Dong fell victim to an early foul in the box, the resulting penalty put away by Hugo Forlico. Maintaining momentum, Knox scored again through Nick Drummond finishing off a seamless combination with Ollie Wiggin. Capitalising on the flow of the game, Lincoln Tasker-Hughes knocked in the final goal of the game to finish 3-0.



The win sees Knox atop the ladder ahead of St Aloysius and Waverley by two points, setting up a grandstand finish next week against Waverley. Knox 2nd X1 went down 2-1, leaving them in 2nd place by four points. The 3rd’s earned a 3-1 win and the 5th’s a 3-2 triumph. The 4th’s finished 0-0, while the 6th’s went down 5-0.

Feature Game of the Week is the 7th’s fairy-tale performance in a game that had everything. Coming into the round with back to back losses, the Knox side looked vulnerable, conceding a goal in the first minute of the match. Barker scored again in the 15th minute, sending a familiar feeling of worry through the crowd. With plenty of time left in the first half, Knox began to dominate possession and field position. Reward quickly followed with goals to Ben H and Pat Ying levelling the scores before halftime. The second half saw Knox find another gear, relentless in their pursuit of the ball in every contest. The 2nd half remained tied until Barker earned a penalty in the dying minutes. Goalkeeper, “Frenchy” became the hero when his foot prevented the conversion, conceding a corner. The Knox defence stole the ball to send Ben H on a length of the field team goal and steal the win with the final touch of the match. Knox 3-2 victors in a thrilling display for their final home game of the season. 

Congratulations to the 10B’s for wrapping up the league title on the weekend, Mackenzie Harvey saving his best performance of the season for last in their 2-1 win. The 10A’s sit in 1st place on the ladder by just a point after their 3-0 victory, with Alex Sun leading the way. The 10C’s finished the round with a 2-2 draw, while the D’s Hugo Domazet netted a hat trick in their 3-1 win. The 10E’s Daniel Se scored their game’s only goal, while the 10F’s unfortunate in a 3-0 loss. 

Congratulations also go out to the 9A’s and 9B’s for taking the title in their respective competitions. Massimo Forlico showed his class in the A’s 1-0 win, while the B’s Henry Roberts did the same in their 4-0 clinic. The 9E’s and F’s were impossible to satisfy, scoring a 9-0 and 7-0 win each. Ryan Schokman scored and played beautifully for the E’s, likewise William O’Sullivan for the F’s. Jonathon Bishop was superb in the 9C’s 2-0 win, so too Jonah Nethercott for the D’s in a 4-1 victory. Edward Luo instrumental in the G’s 2-1 win, Kristian Grubisa provided a wonderful showing in the 9H side’s 3-2 win.  

Year 8 played out the round with mixed results against tough opposition. The A’s Luther Smith and Ryan Cheung performed well in a gutsy team performance which finished 0-0. Daniel and Alec Wartho showed determination in the B’s 1-1 draw, while Jaiden Brockelbank and Angus Fuller entertained onlookers in the E’s 1-1 tie. The F’s went down 9-0 in a tough encounter, performances from Christian Sekuloski and Robbie Ferguson contradicting the final tally. The C’s and D’s both enjoyed 2-0 wins, helped along by great showings from Sydney Kensit for the C’s and Grant McAsey for the D’s.  

Year 7’s B team locked up their competition’s title this week with a 2-0 win, and earned high praise from the coaching staff, congratulations boys on a great season. Hamish Graham and Jacob Wander responsible for spirited play on such a celebratory day for the team. The 7A’s Anthony Segreto and Joshua Foley fought hard in their team’s 3-1 loss, while the 7D’s Rufus Howell scored a brace to back up an awesome game from goalkeeper Flynn Macgregor in their 5-0 win. The 7C’s won their fixture 2-0, as did the 7F’s. Ashton Bloom netted a brace in the E’s 7-0 triumph, facilitated through great performances from Hugo Boulden and Alex Ruygrok. The G’s Daniel Birkbeck hit the back of the net three times in their 5-0 win, while Ben Price scored two in 7H’s victory. The 7I team finished off the round with a win on the back of positive play from William Wang and Jaiden Brown.

In Division 2, a race to the finish saw Thomas Bartnik place first, closely followed by Eric Zhang, Lachlan Yelds and Alex Koch-Lowndes. 

Division 3 saw a stellar performance by Dhruv Hariharan and Ridge Zhao, placing first and second respectively, with times almost 15 minutes ahead of the other division competitors. The final rankings have been tallied and awards will be presented at our season conclusion next Saturday. 

This week will see a change of atmosphere, as we look to celebrating the achievements of the season and farewelling our year 12s.  We welcome all parents and relatives to join us for the closing ceremony of the season, commencing around 10:45am.

Rugby

Mr John Rownes, Rugby Coordinator

Knox and Barker was an anticipated clash and on a glorious Saturday afternoon, a very large crowd filled Knox 1 to watch what turned out to be a thrilling match. Knox were undefeated in their three CAS matches while Barker had two wins and a narrow loss to Waverly. The level of intensity remained high throughout the game. Knox searched in close and out wide in their attempts to find their way through the Barker defence. Knox produced some good tries but the Barker defence was outstanding. Knox certainly went close and with the scores at 22 – 24 in the dying stages of the match, Barker kicked a penalty goal to confirm their win. Knox will play Waverley at Queens Park in the final match of the season.

The 2nd XV encountered a determined Barker team losing 17 – 24. In the other Opens matches the 3rd XV defeated Barker 12 – 10, 4th XV lost 7 – 24, 5th XV lost 10 – 23 while the 6th XV won 19 – 17.

Early in the day the Knox 16A held on to win 13 – 12. The Knox team made a good start and from a driving maul off the lineout, Enrique Grobler scored a try. Sam Rechner produced an excellent piece of play to send Austin Thomson sprinting down the sideline to score a sensational try. Barker scored a converted try to bring the score to 10 – 7 and on halftime Darcy Fitzgerald kicked a penalty goal for a 13 – 7 lead. The second half required an extremely determined defensive effort from the Knox team as Barker dominated possession and field position. Barker scored a try to narrow the score to 13 – 12 and resolute defence for the final 6 minutes by Knox resulted in this being the fulltime score. At Gillespie, the largest and most vocal crowd of the season watched an intense match between Knox and Barker in the 16B’s. Knox won a willing contest 29 – 14.

The 15A’s continued with their very successful season to defeat Barker 22 – 10 while the 14A and 14B teams both produced strong performances to win their respective matches with Barker 50 – 7 and 69 – 0.

Ms Alexandra Charles, Head Volleyball Coach

This week the 3rds came away with their first win of the season! In what ended up being an excellent game, they demonstrated their control and ability to play under pressure.

The 2nds continued our winning streak with a 3:1 defeat of Barker. There was some very strong play from the team who worked well together, maintaining pressure on Barker throughout the four sets.

Strong serving from the team, especially Andrew Lee, allowed Knox to close out the game and finish the fourth set with a close, but exciting win.
