Comiskey's efforts praised in quarter final win at State cup
ST PATRICK'S students let out a huge cheer from the packed grandstands when Riley Comiskey broke through Norville State School's defensive line to score.
It was Comiskey's second try for the match in the quarter final of the State Wide Primary Schools' Development Cup.
"It was an excellent game and good fun," the 12-year-old said.
"I think we played as best we could and had a good game."
Playing with a muscle strain in his right leg, Comiskey's man of the match effort was applauded by the team staff.
"I had to push through it," Comiskey said.
"I hurt it at the touch carnival so it was stinging a bit, but I just had to push through."
Principal Max Martin was full of praise for the winning team, saying they deserved the hard-fought victory.
"Norville has a large side compared to ours," he said.
"Plenty of courageous tackles... The boys did exceptionally well."
