A Trip To St Bernard's

Yesterday saw a large contingent of FDMC students representing the College at St Bernard's in Lower Hutt. This has become an annual fixture over the last decade and has proved a valuable social and sporting exchange. The results went something like this;

The 1st XV lost by a score of 15 to 3, with St Bernard's playing very well while our guys did not match the recent standards they have set for themselves. One talking point was the FDMC hooker being sin-binned for persistently not throwing the ball in straight - a ref's call that few had ever witnessed before.

The 1st XI Soccer played well and dominated play for long periods of time, but conceded a late penalty goal to end up drawing 2 all.

The 1st V Basketball team played on the Tuesday night and did well to control the play and the game, finally winning by a 20 point margin.

We also sent a badminton team, which battled manfully for three hours but ended up loosing a few more games than we won.

In all not the best results we have had, but as the old adage goes "if you want to dish it out, you have got to be prepared to take it".
