Warwick students go sports mad at Broncos Challege Cup
HALFBACK Blake Lollback scored a try three minutes from fulltime for Assumption College to win their first A-grade Anglo American Broncos Challenge Cup final last night at St Mark's Oval.
Assumption led Goondiwindi High at half-time before the score was 28-all in the final minutes of the match.
Tyler Lockhart threw the pass to Lollback close to the line for the try.
The winning team was jointly coached by Andrew Skipper and Bob Bell.
Goondiwindi High fullback Malcolm Peckham was player of the final.
To cap off an outstanding afternoon for Assumption, the B-grade rugby league team won the cup with a 28-10 victory against Goondiwindi. Zac Stevens was player of the final.
In netball, Goondiwindi and Assumption played in all three finals with Goondiwindi winning A and C and Assumption the B-grade champions.
Player of the final awards were won by Kerra-Lea Lawrence (A) and Kaala Doyle (C) and Assumption student Julia Murphy (B).
Warwick High won four of the five plate finals between third and fourth placed teams.
They were victorious in both rugby league finals, A and C-grade netball. Allora/Killarney won the B-grade netball plate.
In the bowl finals between fifth and sixth placed teams, Allora/Killarney won two, Warwick High, St Texwood (St Joseph's/Texas) and Inglewood/Texas/St Joseph's one each.
The trophies were presented by Broncos A-grader David Stagg who is recovering from an injured knee and hopes to return to the field in round 20.
He was accompanied to Warwick by Broncos development manager Paul Dyer and representatives of joint sponsors Anglo American.
Stagg said coming from a family of four boys, he hadn't seen a lot of netball down the years.
"It was good to see the action and the girls enjoying themselves off the field," Stagg said.
