ST Dominic’s Priory School’s first team boys and girls participated in the annual SA High Schools Soccer Tournament which took place in East London from July 3 to 5.

The girls started the tournament on a high note when they faced Selly Park and won 5-0.

The boys’ team followed with a hard-fought 1-1 draw with Milnerton High School, while the girls ended the day with a 1-1 draw against last year’s runners-up, Kimberley Girls’ High.

The boys had a tough second day, losing both their matches.

The girls beat Milnerton 1-0 in their first match, but lost their second against Rand Girls’ High 3-0 in the round robin section.

After a heated battle, Priory’s boys lost to Victoria Park High in the quarter-final match.

For the girls it was the first time a Priory soccer team had made it to the semi-finals of the tournament.

They beat Kimberley Girls’ High 3-1 in their semi-final match and advanced to the finals where they came up against Rand Girls’ High.

The score was still 0-0 at the end of the game and led to a penalty shoot-out, which Rand Girls’ High won 3-1.

Though the girls’ team had to settle for the silver medal, a few St Dominic’s Priory learners were chosen for the All Stars Team.

They were Tomas Lück from the boys’ team and Ashika Coollen, Aphiwe Siyo and Alexia Potgieter (captain) from the girls’ team.
