new event and some good styles were
Teachers and staff from Barkly Re-
gional Education Offce got in on the
action, competing in a sack race and then

IN term 2, Grade 5 and 6 students were com-
peting for their house colour in the 2016
Anyinginyi school sports competitions or-
ganised and facilitated by the Anyinignyi
Sports and Rec team.
The sport for Term 2 was soccer, and it has been held
on the undercover courts in Purkiss Reserve, which
involved three sessions of each house playing against
each other and last Thursday 16 June, was the soccer
fnals to see which team would get what points to go
to their overall tally.
The third versus fourth match in the girls was Juno vs
Flynn -- last time these girls played it was a draw, and
Juno got off to a great start, leading 3-0 at half time.
Flynn tried to re-group at half time but to no avail,
with Slyvannia Kelly (4 goals) and Dayna Dowling (2
goals) playing sensationally team soccer to win 6-0.
In the boys match to see who would claim third spot
was Noble v Flynn, Noble who have struggled with
numbers were in front at half time 2-1, with Meschach
Smith leading the was with 2 goals.
It was looking like Noble would get their frst win for
soccer, however Natrell Dickson would put a stop to
that and score a hatrick of goals in the second half, to
have 4 goals for the game and Flynn would win 4-2.
The girls gold medal match was between Noble and
Peko, this game was tightly contested game with no
team giving an edge and in the second half a goal
scored by Olivia Haines would end up being the
winning goal and Peko defeating Noble 1-0 to take
out the girls soccer challenge and score 10 points to
Allira Davey was best for Peko and Bryanna Waist-
coat played a great game for Noble. Well done Peko
In the boys match between Peko and Juno, again
it was a classic game to see who would win and get
the 10 points.
Their last game in Round 1 was a 2-2 draw and this
game was close, Andrew Peckham was giving it his
all for Peko and had a couple of goals under his belt,
however some great play by Juno in the second half,
took this game to a penalty shootout.
Stanley Waistcoat (Peko) and Jai Renfrey-Carroll
(Juno) were the goalies and had to stop fve penalties
to see who would win.
Juno got off to a bright start with Junior George
scoring the frst goal, however after a few misses by
both teams Jayden Miller, made it even with his goal.
A thunderbolt kick by Lachlan Munckton was well
stopped by keeper Jai, and then Jeffrrey Frank sent the
ball into the goals to have Juno leading and Peko had
the last kick to even the game, it was all very tense
and the crowd was getting nervous and cheered for
both players, however the kick by Josh Ondeyo was
again well stopped by Jai Renfrey-Carrol and to see
Juno take the 10 points.
Next term's sport will be touch football, to see which
house colour can score points to their overall tally.
Scores: Peko 18 points, Juno 16 points, Noble 12
points, Flynn 10 points.
