Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : July 23 2008
46 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, July 24, 2008 SPORT www.innerwestweekly.com.au Teen's an ace on the court From Back Page The trip allowed Fabiana to test herself against other juniors who trained at the academy full-time. ''It was a good experience to visit that academy and see all the kids train every day,'' she said. Her current training schedule involves hitting with her dad, Fernando, or her coach every day. But she says this is likely to increase once she starts at the academy. ''I'll be on the court a lot more,'' she said. Fabiana has been nominated for the Inner-West Weekly Junior Sports Star award. She is in the running to win a medal and $1000.

St Pat's left reeling after landslide loss ST Patrick's Rugby Club hosted Mosman at home at Hudson Park, Strathfield West, on the weekend. The Kentwell Cup side per- formed better than the 50-15 scoreline shows after they unfortunately let a few late tries through to blow out the score. The hard-working scrum half Brad O'Young was re- warded with a try and the coach's three points for his efforts in the game. The other points came from Gusi Brown (first try of the season) and the boot of Jaime Wood. In second grade St Pats beat Mosman 34-18; third grade beat Mosman 15-13; and fourth grade won 22-7. Colts went down 24-10 to Mosman. This week St Patrick's play Forest at home.

Dirty Reds win try-fest DRUMMOYNE rolled over University of NSW 55-32, with points scored at a rate of more than one a minute in an entertaining display of rugby union on the weekend. The first half began well for Drummoyne with tries coming from NSW Suburban representative No.8 Trent Tapps, scrum half Jesse Milford, winger Josh Asusasu and flanker Nathan Landrey. UNSW scored three tries to keep the score a respectable 26-20 at half-time. In the second half UNSW's No.8, Scott Monaghan, made multiple line breaks, two of which led directly to tries to hooker Tim Cruikshank and Josh Asusasu. With a quick tap to the ball, winger Wise Gavida set up a try for lock Peter Goodall, before scoring two of his own. Drummoyne second grade scored two early tries to fly-half Mathew Pride and centre Martin Tevaga before poor discipline cost the Dirty Reds a try. A late first-half try to halfback Ben Leaupepe allowed Drummoyne to take a 19-10 lead at the break. Drummoyne defended for long periods of time inside their own 22 as UNSW threw everything at them, but could only manage a penalty goal. From a scrum inside their own half the back row of Dusty Elsom, Alex Cruikshank and William Fitzpatrick combined to score a long-range try which broke the spirit of the opposition. A second try by Martin Tevaga closed the match out 33-13. Drummoyne thirds won 9-0. Fourth grade lost 17-3, fifth grade drew 0-0 and the colts lost 29-13.
