Congratulations to all of the ACC teams participating in the 2019 ACC Year 7 Super Series - Sam Kerr and Stan Lazaridis Football Shields.
The Year 7 Super Series had soccer group stage fixtures spread across multiple metro venues Mercy College, Irene McCormack College and Curtin University.
In the boys northern pool at Mercy College a very strong pool of teams had a great day with many close and hard fought games decided in the final minutes. Chisholm boys played a strong final game performance with a 3-1 result over Irene McCormack earning entry into the Stan Lazaridis Final on goal difference. In the girls at Irene McCormack College, Mercy College was very strong all day alongside the equally impressive Irene McCormack team. The Mercy girls scoring in the crossover final, putting them through to the Sam Kerr Shield Final.
The South-Central pool at Curtin University was also a fantastic day of games with Bunbury Catholic College playing determined football and winning through to the Sam Kerr Grand Final. In the Stan Lazaridis Shield, South Coast Baptist College also enjoyed an undefeated run with some commanding performances against teams such as CBC Fremantle and Bunbury Catholic.
The stage was set with John XXIII playing fields for the Boys Grand Final and Frederick Irwin AS in Mandurah playing host to the Girls Grandfinal. It was to be a football showdown between Mercy College v Bunbury Catholic in the Sam Kerr Final (Girls) and South Coast Baptist v Chisholm College in the Stan Lazaridis Final (Boys).
The Stand Lazaridis Final was played at a fast speed, with excellent attacking play and top level skills from both teams. As the game progressed, South Coast showed their tremendous attacking power scoring some stunning goals and pulling away to be crowned the champions.
The Sam Kerr Final was a great battle from the beginning with Bunbury Catholic striking early with two stunning goals in the first half before Mercy started to find their feet and gain some possession and field position. A goal to the Mercy in the second half had the game on a tightrope and the defensive efforts of Bunbury was suddenly needing to be at its peak to the final whistle.
