On Wednesday 20th of July the Galen 9 & 10 football side competed in VSSSA Hume Region competition at the Bar Reserve Wangaratta.
Galen played in 3 games, each consisting of two fifteen minutes halves. The competition was fierce with most teams demonstrating a real commitment and enthusiasm for their teammates. In the first game Notre Dame College kicked the first two goals and Galen just weren’t able to make up the difference. In the next two games the Galen team dominated. Both Tallangatta and Euroa suffered their biggest loss for the day to Galen. However Galen’s defeat in the first game meant Notre Dame College was the overall winner. What was most pleasing on the day was the manner in which the Galen students conducted themselves both on and off the field, trying their best and showing great sportsmanship.
