2021 All Schools Touch Football Tournament Wrap: Wednesday 6 – Sunday 10 October

Canterbury College re-joined the All Schools Touch Football Competition in 2021 for an action-packed five-day event, involving 424 teams playing nearly 2,000 games, and bringing around 6,500 junior athletes, coaches and referees to the beautiful Gold Coast.

The Canterbury Taipans were represented by our Under 13 and Under 15 Girls Teams coached by Mr Boon and Mr Enelaki, as well as our Under 18 Mixed Team coached by Mr Sione.

Across a number of pool games, the Under 13 Girls Team played some wonderful touch and won three and lost three of their games, while the Under 15 Girls won two of their six games, both coming in confident fashion on Day Two.

The Under 18 Mixed Team bounced back from a first-up loss, to progress through the pool stages undefeated, and qualify for the Top 16 – playing Our Lady’s from Dalby and just losing narrowly 6-5.

It was a very positive return to the All Schools scene, and one that was characterised by the happy faces and positive efforts by all our students who participated.

NB: Some really great Canterbury Taipans tournament match photos were taken by Sarah Boon Photography and posted to her Facebook Page here.
