House Cup report

Sam Gleeson
Year 11 Coordinator

The House Cup broke records this year with over 200 students competing for their Houses in the hopes of claiming bragging rights and some impressive silverware. Running over five weeks, the football on display was top quality with each House winning at least one championship. The Year 7 tournament was taking place as this went to publication.


Year 12: Barker (Oli, Dat, Matt, Daniel, Jasper, James, Quinn, Kristopher, Kai and Kyler)
Year 11: Boroondara (Reuben, Will, Moritz, Milo, Pip, Ric, Jake, Nick and Tom)
Year 10: Barker (George, Tom, Petros, Radin, Banjo and Luca)
Year 9: Wilsmere (Zaydan, Samir, Jessie, Lucas, Nate and Gio)
Year 8: Cotham (Nathan, Alex, Damon, Gem, Charlie and Jayden)

Sardy-Tambo Shield (Year 10-12): The senior year level winners battle it out each year for a chance to win the time-honoured Sardy-Tambo shield. The preliminary match saw Year 11 Boroondara take on Year 10 Barker. The match ended 2-2 and went to extra time with Boroondara just edging out their younger opponents in what many described as the match of the tournament. In the final, Year 11 Boroondara took an early lead, before conceding twice to fall 2-1 behind. However, two very quick goals with just minutes remaining from Reuben and super sub Jake turned the match on its head and was enough to give Boroondara their first ever Sardy-Tambo Shield.

Kyriakos Cup (Year 8-9): Year 8 Cotham took on Year 9 Wilsmere for the Kyriakos Cup. It is a tournament that Wilsmere has made their own, winning three of the past four editions. The first half was tense, with the Year 8s sitting back and absorbing pressure while creating chances on the counter-attack. However, Wilsmere’s class rose to the top in the second half with two goals from Lucas sealing a victory and maintaining the Wilsmere domination. Year 8 Cotham should be commended for their efforts in winning their year level title and pushing a high quality and more experienced Year 9 Wilsmere team all the way.
