Three Dalby Schools compete in QPST

touch: Mixed teams from three Dalby schools represented the town in the Queensland Primary All Schools Touch Football last weekend.

Teams from Dalby Christian College, Dalby South State School and Our Lady of the Southern Cross College spent two days at Redlands participating in the competition.

Both DSSS and DCC put up a fight and made it through day one pool rounds, enabling them to compete in the championship finals.

Despite having a squad of only nine players, DCC made it to quarter finals, defeating Wishart State School, St Bernadine's School and Banksia Beach State School.

They were defeated in their game against St Thomas More Catholic Primary School, succumbing to the harsh weather, a shortage of players and an injury in the team.

Ranking in the top eight of 53 teams, DCC has plenty of which to be proud.

Coach Jeremy Wainwright said he was proud of how his team went.

"The kids played really well. I was very impressed with their attitude on and off the field,”Wainwright said.

"The heat was a tough challenge for the kids and the quality of the competition was tough for the kids.”

"But I was very impressed in the way they were able to overcome the challenges.”

"They made it to the quarter-finals and they were knocked out by one of the teams that made it to the grand final,” he said.
