LRPS Winter Sports – Footy

On Monday , the LRPS footy team played against the other schools from Traralgon. It was a cold, wet and windy day and the students played really well. We were unlucky in some of the games with some unfortunate bounces making it hard for us to score goals. The team played really well in the last game, kicking four goals in the first half. We ended up winning the last game by one goal.

Brandon Macauliffe won our best and fairest award on the day, but all players put in a great effort.
