Welcome to co-curricular sport for Term 2!

For those who are yet to meet me, my name is Gareth Cox and I am the new Co-Curricular Coordinator at Blackfriars. I am really excited to be working with you all to deliver a fabulous program going forward.


An unbelievable start to the soccer season for the Hounds this week, winning 7 out of 8 games.

With 48 goals scored across the 8 games, there’s entertainment guaranteed when watching Hounds soccer. A couple of notable performances came from Isaac Matikulas (1st XI) and Luka Banicek (Middle A2), who both scored hat-tricks on the way to gaining all 3 points. All in all, a fantastic start to the season and hopefully a great steppingstone for future games.

Thanks to Ms Petrilli for this photo of some of our young soccer stars. Good luck to all teams playing this weekend!


Hounds’ basketball got off to a flyer on the weekend, winning 8 out of 9 games. I had the first-hand opportunity to witness some exciting basketball and excellent attacking play from all middle school teams. The highlight was the Middle As scoring a Hounds’ weekend high of 71 points on their way to a huge away win over Sacred Heart.

Jackson Puddy was the Hounds top scorer this weekend, with 16 points in the Senior A grade in a fantastic 44-17 win over Trinity College.

The Senior A-Cs and Middle A-Cs have a much-deserved bye this weekend.

Good luck to the Senior Ds (5 Nth), Year 7s (Middle 3Nth) and the Year 5/6s as they fly the Hounds flag this weekend on the basketball court.


1 game, 1 loss for the Hounds this weekend.

Our Year 5/6 Primary team were the sole performers this week and they put up a valiant effort against a strong Trinity College side, eventually losing by 2 goals (13:25). The boys have already been training hard this week before school as they look forward to their big away game vs Westminster School on Saturday morning.

Goalkickers were Matthew Astor and Lincoln Huynh.

Table Tennis

Table Tennis kick started the Hounds Co-Curricular this weekend, with Pulteney and Immanuel making the trip to the Neill Gymnasium and our Senior B and Middle B making the trip to cross-town rivals CBC.

Ultimately, it was a mixed bag of results, with the home tables becoming a fortress for the Senior A, Middle A and Middle C, winning all 3 games. The away trip to CBC proved to be less fruitful as the Hounds went down with 2 losses.

Final total for the Table Tennis – Played 5 won 3, lost 2.

Good luck to the 5 teams playing on Friday night!


A tough weekend for the Hounds Lacrosse teams, but some great fun had by all.

With a high percentage of players being relatively new to the sport, it’s all about gaining valuable experience. There were some notable performances across the grades with Xavier Matej, Eli Buckley and Kaleb Hill being the best players in the U11 Blue, U11 Black and U13s respectively.

This weekend sees all 4 teams playing, with the Hounds fielding an U8s, two U11s and an U13s team for the remainder of the season.

Thanks to The Eagles Lacrosse Club for these pictures of our boys. You can find more pictures on our social media pages.
