  • HBHS Wins ERREA Cup Knock-out Semi-Final

    Wednesday morning started as usual for most students but for the First Grade Football team it started very early, and it was to be a day filled with excitement and anticipation. Coach Mr Scott Belgre had organised the Knock-Out semi-final against Albury for the all-weather astro-turf pitch at Seymour Shaw stadium in the Sutherland Shire so the team and supporters met Mr Khurshed and Mr Carrozza at the school bus at 7AM.

    The game kicked off at 8.45AM and after the first half the score was 0-0. Deserved praise went to the Albury goal keeper who had made at least two extraordinary saves. But the second half went to Homebush and when Nathan Carter scored after 20 minutes of play our defence reamined rock-solid and we closed out the match. A well deserved 1-0 win over a spirited but sporting opposition.

    Mr Belgre was quoted as saying that the "team played a well-structured but expansive game and even under pressure they maintained their shape. I am looking forward to the final and believe I have the boys that could go all the way".
