My wife and I went over as my daughters were in the Sacred Heart girl's soccer team.
Each year Sacred Heart (Adelaide) and Assumption College enjoy a sports exchange with the highlight being the traditional football match.
This year had an extra significance with the retirement of 74 year old Ray Carroll - a coach & teacher at Assumption for 53 years - 36 years as coach of the senior school football team.
For the record Sacred Heart spoilt the party winning by 23 points, much to the disappointment of the vast majority of the massive crowd.
Felt like we were supporting the Washington Generals beating the Harlem Globetrotters. But Sacred Heart has only won about 15 times in 50 odd years so it was a great effort by the team from Adelaide.
Entertaining day with hundreds of Ray Carroll's ex students there including past VFL/AFL stars Bill Brownless, Simon O'Donnell and Peter McCormack involved in a goal kicking comp conducted by Shane Crawford at half time.
