Referees, controversy and a Sunday hat-trick headlined a weekend which saw only two teams take wins.
Ivan’s D Grade headed out north to a “safe Labor seat” to take on Simba Heroes. The boys got on top early taking the lead through a penalty scored by Jim Koufalis. Trying to respond the pride of Simba Heroes pushed forward trying to put the OISC defence under pressure, maintaining the lion’s share of the play for the remainder of the half they were able to level the score at 1-1 going in to half time. In the second half Simba remained kings of the field getting away more shots on goal, OISC pressed for a second but in the end fell short as Simba ran out 2-1 winners.
The C Grade stayed a bit closer to home taking on Comets on Greenhill Road. OISC were in charge right from the first whistle, maintaining the majority of possession with goals to Philip Dichiera and a brace to Monty Soares opening up a commanding advantage. They could have scored many more had the pitch not been as uneven as it was and with a bobble worse than that at Glenunga. A fourth goal from a corner in to Paul Barolo capped off a strong performance by the guys giving them a 4-0 win.
The B Grade faced a Comets side who were previously unbeaten. OISC pressed forward early but were unable to break through the Comets defence. The game remained evenly poised for most of its duration a goal to Simon Ventoruzzo gave OISC some hope of taking the points but in the end Comets continued their unbeaten run and OISC had to settle with a share of the points as the match finished 1-1.
The A Grade hoped get back on track with a good performance. The first half saw OISC play below par with poor decision making being prevalent. The match was quickly overshadowed by the refereeing with many players being clearly fouled to the point of some of the play becoming dangerous but the referee refused to pull out the yellow card. In the second half OISC lifted with many chances created but a lack of finishing stopped them from scoring, the decision to not award a clear penalty further hindered OISC’s chances. The lack of cards for bad challenges continued and reached a crescendo when a penalty was awarded against the OISC keeper for what was simply a good piece of keeping. A great save from Ronnie kept the shot out but Comets scored the follow up. A penalty was finally awarded to OISC on the last kick of the game as Chris Gauro had his shirt pulled bringing him down inside the box. The conversion by Adrian Stenta saw the game end 1-1.
On Sunday the OISC women headed south to take on Westminster. Missing some key players OISC were in control all game and maintained most of the possession putting shots in with regularity and ease. A second hat-trick for the season to Sarah Tronnolone and a brace to Alysia Panagakos gave OISC a clear lead which was capped off with a Westminster own goal seeing OISC take a 6-0 win.
Next week all the men’s teams return to Glenunga with the A/B/C grades taking on Titans and the D & E grades facing East Adelaide. The OISC women meanwhile enjoy the weekend off.

Cup Round, Sunday and away matches headlined a weekend which only saw three teams in action.
The E Grade headed north to take on Sunday Div 2 side Para Hills East. In a match which was always going to be a challenge. Para Hills East were able to break through the OISC defence though to give them a 1-0 lead. The E Grade did well to hold their opposition out until late in the second half when chasing the equaliser, Para Hills East were able to capitalise and score twice more to give them a 3-0 win.
The B Grade headed to out to take on Sunday Div 2 side Tea Tree Gully. In a match which saw a strong line-up, OISC took early advantage with an error by the Gully keeper seeing what looked to be an own goal but a goal to Chris Gauro putting OISC ahead. After the initial period some poor decision making set in and allowed TTG to press forward and get a number of shots away. A goal to Mark Ciccarello on half time allowed OISC to extend their advantage. A third goal from an Emerson Ciccarello penalty re-kindled Rocco’s love and sealed a 3-0 victory putting them into the next round of the cup.
The A Grade meanwhile took on Sunday Premier side Elizabeth Vale. Sporting a line-up very different from a regular A Grade side OISC hoped both the experienced and young players coming into the side would give a good account. Despite Elizabeth Vale pressing forward early, a perfect opportunity sent over the crossbar early by Peter Barone would have put OISC ahead. Vale was able to capitalise on this and took the lead. OISC held them to only a two goal advantage at half time, however a third early in the second half almost sealed the result. Not giving in though OISC had several shots agonisingly close from going in and in the end leaving them to rue missed chances as Elizabeth Vale took a 3-0 victory.
Next week all teams are on the road again with the A/B/C grades returning in the league to play Comets on Greenhill Road, the D & E Grade head out to north to take on Simba Heroes. The OISC Women head south on Sunday to face Westminster.

A top of the table clash, rain and another pack of Wolves headlined a weekend which saw only two teams pick up wins.
The E Grade set about dominating their opponents and took an early lead. The match proved to be a bit of a shootout, with the experienced players keeping formations organised and the ball going forward, opportunities were taken with David Leach, Will Ventura and Sareen McLinton scoring, Danzo claimed that he too was close to scoring, in the end OISC still ran out 3-2 winners.
The D Grade looked to bounce back and did so taking an early lead, clearly dominating their opposition, many more chances were created. A penalty into the second half allowed the lead to be extended. Not satisfied OISC put a further two past the Northern Wolves keeper, a late goal to Wolves provided some consolation but the D Grade ran out 4-1 winners with Branko Ripa scoring a hat-trick and Daniel Arbon also scoring.
The C Grade got off to a slow start in the early game, Wanderers taking an early lead. The game became one where both teams created chances every time they went into their attacking half. The goals were spread across the side with Raffaele Ceravolo, Danny Totani, David Williams and Andrew Rossi all scoring, but many more opportunities going begging. Unfortunately Wanderers took more of their chances taking out a 5-4 win.
The B Grade faced a game where they needed to keep touch with the teams at the top of the table. Again, Wanderers took the lead early through some good attacking and some poor OISC defending. The B’s struggled to recover and fully get into the game going into half time behind. Another goal for the season to Simon Ventoruzzo kept OISC in the hunt to take the game. In the end though Wanderers took a 2-1 win.
The A Grade faced a top of the table game which could define their season. Again they got off to a slow start, with Wanderers capitalising and taking the lead. This sparked OISC to life with Chris Gauro levelling the match. Wanderers quickly replied to have them 2-1 ahead at H/T. In the second half the game took a different turn, a penalty taken by Adrian Stenta levelled the match. OISC started to slow the match down but two red cards in quick succession had the A’s down to 9 men. Despite this OISC continued to hold off Wanderers going forward with Shaun George working hard through the middle to keep the ball out of their attacking half. Inevitably though Wanderers took advantage of their two man advantage by scoring twice more to give them a 4-2 win.
On Sunday the OISC women faced St Peters and came out hard early and doing a majority of the attacking in the first half creating many chances. St Peters scored a lucky goal to give them a 1-0 half time lead. In the second half St Peters were on top scoring three more, some good and “hard” defending stopped the scoreline grow further. At the other end OISC was still creating a number of chances with Sophie Hlipala bringing one back; a near miss from a corner and hitting the crossbar from 30 yards by Alysia Panagakos could have brought OISC back into the game. In the end the 4-1 loss did not reflect the state of the match.
On the long weekend next week the cup competition returns with A/B/E grades all in action on Sunday away from home with the A’s playing Sun Div 1 side Elizabeth Vale, the B’s Sun Div 2 side Tea Tree Gully and the E’s Sun Div 2 side Para Hills East. The C/D and women’s teams have the weekend off.

The E Grade Dream, big pitches and the number three headlined a weekend where all teams were away from home and four of the six teams scoring wins.
The E Grade were looking to re-ignite Danzo’s dream coaching run. The wide expanses of Flinders do not suit the age profile of the E grade but with stack loads of determination and a solid system the result was achieved. A terrific clean sheet with solid keeping again from Mark Andrawos built a platform to build on. A corner from the left that took 5 minutes to arrive based on the dimensions of their field was headed in directly by the impressive Angelo La Paglia who was quality all day. The dream was reborn and returning to Glenunga next week will assist the lads since many of them are recovering from the half marathon they covered on Saturday.
The D Grade looked to back up their good win last week, they found the going tough though and fell behind, continuing to try and make the most of their chances they tried to level the ledger. However Flinders showed better skills and utilised these to open up the commanding lead which saw them take a 4-0 victory.
The C Grade headed to Thebarton to take on MA Hawks who were desperate for a win. For Hawks however it was not to be as OISC controlled play and in particular David Williams who had many shots on goal, scoring three and giving them a commanding 3-0 victory.
The B’s having already defeated Hawks in the Cup competition were confident that they could repeat the three goal win they had in the cup. It looked like this was well on the way to becoming the case with an early goal to Matt Gauro. An early forced sub that introduced James Blake into the game had an immediate effect with a short cross into the box allowed him to header the ball in to extend the lead. A third not long after to Simon Ventoruzzo gave a commanding lead at half time. The second half was a little more subdued Hawks were given little opportunity to attack with the OISC midfield led by Dan Rossi giving them little chance of moving the ball forward. In the end though they did put one through ending it as a 3-1 win for the B’s.
The A’s looked to keep their good form going, with a few changes to the side through unavailability and players returning they immediately took control of the game and pressed forward. A deflection in the box mid way through the first half allowed Stuart Ballie to open the scoring. As the game wore on Hawks did find a few holes in the OISC defence, but saves from Ronnie Arboit did not allow them to score. An Adam Carbone goal allowed OISC to extend the lead out to two goals which is how it finished giving OISC three wins against Hawks and allowed the A Grade to extend their gap on the table to three points.
On Sunday the OISC women headed to the Bay to take on Immanuel. Looking to bounce back from last weeks disappointing match they created many chances with most unfortunately going wide of the goal. Immanuel on the other hand took their opportunities when they were handed to them and with that were able to build a commanding lead, an OISC goal to Sarah Tronnolone did provide some consolation but in the end Immanuel ran out 4-1 winners.
Next week all teams return to Glenunga with the A/B/C grades taking on Adelaide Wanderers in matches which will define the direction of all their seasons, while the D/E Grades face Northern Wolves and on Sunday the OISC women play St Peters.

Clashes with another big rival, Ivan’s weekend off and the return of a Ciccarello headlined a weekend which saw another A Grade win and mixed results across the rest of the club.
The E Grade took on Adelaide Uni Grey hoping to keep their run of form going. Yet more goals to the veterans of the side in David Leach and Dali Drazetic kept them in the hunt for the points, some poor choices and lack lustre defending at times allowed Uni to score three times during the game giving them a 3-2 victory, thus ending Danzo’s dream coaching streak and gives the boys an opportunity to re-focus for next week.
The swear/fire truck jar was considerably lighter as the D Grade took to the field without the guidance of Ivan. They looked to bounce back from last week and did so creating many opportunities a goal to Tom Haines-Sutherland gave OISC their first, as they continued to put pressure on the Uni defence which eventually paid off with Rob Seals putting away a second. A consolation goal to Uni did take some shine off the day but nevertheless allowed the boys to go out 2-1 winners.
The C Grade took on a Uni side who were determined for a win and who held the advantage for a majority of the match. An early goal to Adam Sorgini kept OISC in touch, as the game progressed the team found their feet, putting together some good passages of play, as the game wore on goals to Raffaele Ceravolo and Frank Maio allowed OISC to draw level with Uni seeing the match end in a 3-3 draw.
The B Grade looked to make amends for last week with OISC setting about dominating the Uni side. Faced with the prospect of two Ciccarello’s in the one side with Mark returning from injury an early run-on goal by Simon Ventoruzzo opened the scoring. Free flowing play allowed James Blake to extend OISC’s advantage. Uni did create some chances to get back into the game but a second goal to Simon put the result beyond doubt, sealing a 3-0 victory.
The A Grade faced up to a Uni side who had set the pace for the early part of the season. Without playmaker Adam Carbone a little bit of re-organisation had to take place. A goal to Chris Gauro put OISC ahead early. Again many opportunities were created with OISC dominating much of the play, a second goal to Peter Barone allowed the advantage to be extended. A goal to Uni kept them in touch but a penalty awarded to OISC which was converted by captain Adrian Stenta kept OISC well ahead. The last half hour of the match was played with ten men after Elias Khoury was sent from the field for his second yellow card for the match. A second goal very deep (7+ minutes) into stoppage time saw Uni to bring it back to the final result of 3-2 allowing OISC to consolidate their high position on the table.
On Sunday the OISC women headed up to Birdwood to take on Torrens Valley. The girls started very flat, talk was lacking and they were put under pressure by a bigger and more physical side. It was only through some poor shooting from the opposition and some good saves from keeper Natalie Rossi that OISC were able to keep Torrens Valley from scoring. The girls did take a lead mid way through the first half through a Alysia Panagakos corner kick which curled into the net. Not long after Torrens Valley did finally break through to level the match. In the second half the girls failed to lift which allowed Torrens Valley to score twice more and giving them a 3-1 win.
Next week all teams are on the road with the D/E grades taking on Flinders Uni, A/B/C grades facing MA Hawks and the OISC women playing new side Immanuel.

FA Cup Night, another A Grade win and a penalty shootout headlined a busy weekend at Glenunga with mixed results being recorded across the club.
The E Grade continued their charge against Northern Pitbulls, with Danzo’s side controlling the play for most of the game. Many chances went begging for the boys but despite this the veterans of the side saw OISC safely secure the three points with goals to both Mark Williams and David Leach (average age is 42!) seeing a 2-0 victory.
The D’s also took on Northern Pitbulls in a game which turned into a goal fest for both sides. Chances were coming at regular intervals and often when one side scored the other would immediately reply. Ivan’s men fought hard and while they had as many chances as their opposition were unable to convert them all and in the end fell short with Pitbulls taking out a 7-4 win. The goal scorers for OISC were Daniel Arbon, Rob Seals and Branko Ripa.
The C Grade came up against a highly experienced Adelaide Villa side, not to be overawed by this OISC did put up a good battle, falling behind early to a questionable penalty. OISC was awarded a penalty shortly after allowing Danny Totani to level the match at 1-1. As the game continued on the experience of the opposition came through allowing them to score three more, another cracking shot from Anthony Aoukar provided another highlight, in the end though Villa took a 4-2 victory.
The B Grade looking to get their season back on track took on an Adelaide Villa side who were also down on form. The game was not a good one for OISC falling behind and finding themselves unable to respond, the 2-0 loss gave the B Grade something to think about so they can bounce back next week.
The A Grade taking on the 2012 champions and a side who scored two victories over OISC last year were determined to reverse the ledger. The A Grade took command of the game taking a lead through an Adam Carbone goal which shortly after was followed up by another from Peter Barone. Adelaide Villa then brought back the score to 2-1 before an errant elbow struck Stuart Ballie in the head giving him a deep head wound which saw him go off to hospital for treatment. Coming back from half time OISC quickly extended the 2-1 lead with goal of the day to Gianfranco Malvaso and a second to Peter Barone all but securing the three points. A second to Adam Carbone extended the lead further before Villa took advantage of one of the few lapses in the OISC defence to score from a corner. In the end the game ended with a crushing 5-2 victory to OISC.
On Sunday the match of the weekend took place in the Cup between the OISC women and Division 3 side Salisbury Inter. The OISC women were not intimidated by their opposition two divisions higher dominating play in the first half and maintaining possession in their attacking half for a majority of the time putting many shots in, it wasn’t until a 1 on 1 with the Inter keeper that Gemma Bateman put OISC ahead. In the second half again OISC continued to dominate possession and thought that they scored again with a shot which from the sideline was not clear whether it had crossed the line, the goal was waved down by both the referee and the linesman. A goal to Inter mid way through the second half saw the game get levelled at 1-1, sending it into extra time where the deadlock could still not be broken. Finally the game came down to a penalty shootout, early conversions saw Inter take an early advantage, however saves by OISC keeper Natalie Rossi and goals to Alysia Panagakos and Sarah Tronnolone kept OISC in it. However in the end Salisbury Inter took the match out 3-2 on penalties.
Thanks to all of those who attended the FA Cup night on Saturday and a big thank you to The Oyster Bar for hosting us again this year. Congratulations to Tom Earls for purchasing the winning goal scorer.
Next week, all 5 men’s teams come up against Adelaide Uni at Glenunga while the OISC women head up Gorge Rd to face new side Torrens Valley at Birdwood.

Cup Round, Greek Easter and the return of Rocco headlined a week which only saw half of the teams in action.
The E Grade joined the C and D Grades with a weekend off following the withdrawal of their Cup Round opposition in the lead up to the weekend. The E’s as a result have automatically progressed to the second round of the cup.
The B Grade took on fellow Sat Premier club MA Hawks in Rocco’s first game in charge for the season. After a first half which produced many opportunities with OISC clearly the better side the 0-0 half time score line did not reflect the effort the B players had put in. The second half though they stepped up a gear with chances coming on a regular basis. The deadlock was finally broken through a Shane Leane intercept from a throw in which was put out wide into space allowing Simon Ventoruzzo to run on and put the ball into the back of the net. From here the game really broke open with not long after a long diagonal ball into space coming allowing Emerson “The Project” Ciccarello to score much to Rocco’s delight. Further chances continued to follow with a third goal again coming from a ball into space allowing Shane Leane to again run on, when faced with a 1 on 1 with the keeper an unselfish pass to the right allowed Simon to go around the keeper and score his second for the match. Chances continued to come up until the final whistle which saw a 3-0 OISC victory and progression the second round of the Reserve Cup.
The A Grade were just down the road at Ellis Park taking on again a fellow Sat Premier club in Comets. The first half of this match was nothing special as OISC looked lethargic and below the form they have shown in previous weeks. Moving into the second half, it began much like the first half, few chances came up, those that did tended to be shot wide or not utilised. Finally though for OISC a Shaun George goal broke the deadlock. This seemed to spring both sides to life with Comets attacking hard, causing the OISC defence to have to keep out their counter attacks, the A’s created some more chances of their own but the final 1-0 win allowed the A Grade to be the third OISC side in the second round of the cup.
On Sunday the OISC women took on 2012 WCL champions Seymour at Glenunga hoping to replicate the great victory they scored over them last year. In the first half OISC created many chances and were not intimidated by the quality of their opposition sending many shots in the Seymour keepers direction. The keeper did well to deny many of these but a shot by Sophie Hlipala from inside the 18 yard box found the back of the net and was reward for the constant pressure. In the second half the OISC women came out slowly and appeared to not have the same pressure they maintained in the first half with a defensive error allowing Seymour to level the match. In the end the match finished 1-1, still a very pleasing result and again making the OISC women the first team to take points from the Seymour side.
Next week all the men’s teams return to action at Glenunga with the A/B/C grades taking on Adelaide Villa and the C/D grades Northern Pitbulls. On Sunday the OISC women move into the Cup competition taking on Women’s Div 3 side Salisbury Inter at Glenunga. The club would like to see as many people out supporting the women and the men’s teams this weekend.

Ladies day, the clash of two rivals and a farewell headlined a successful weekend for OISC with the club nearly taking a clean sweep of all points on offer with five of the six teams scoring wins.
The E Grade looked to show that they weren’t hung over from their trip down to wine country in McLaren Vale last week, taking on another rural side, this time Strathalbyn. Again Danzo’s men comfortably were in control for the entire game with goals coming at a steady rate securing a 4-1 win, which could have been far greater with Danzo again coming “close” to breaking his scoring drought. Goals were shared around with singles to Anthony Aoukar, Gabriel Soriano and Avi Ringel, and a calmly converted penalty to Mr David Leach.
The D Grade looked to follow on and certainly made the most of all the chances they had in a free-flowing first half which saw OISC take a 2-0 lead into half time. Some positive fire trucks from Ivan at half time saw a third goal quickly scored after the break giving Daniel Arbon a brace for the match. Late in the second half OISC was awarded a penalty, with Adam Sorgini looking to redeem himself after the previous week, the resulting conversion gave him a hat trick for the match and the boys a 5-0 victory.
Meanwhile Greg’s C team faced St Peters and hoped to start a whitewash of the day and farewell club favourite Ryan Dew in style. With St Peters always going hard for the points in this match the guys found the going tough. They pressed hard throughout the match with many opportunities going unrewarded; a goal to Danny Totani provided some consolation for the boys’ hard efforts but ultimately fell short with SPOC winning 2-1.
The B’s came out determined to not let St Peters enjoy any more of their day. Clearly dominant OISC controlled the play for most of the game with chances coming at a regular rate, with Adam Ciano taking advantage of this to give OISC an early lead, as the game wore on goals to Andrew Rossi and a James Blake bullet gave OISC a clear advantage, a goal to St Peters did give them some consolation but in the end the B Grade took the points 3-1.
The A Grade welcomed back some players into the side and looked to carry on from the 2012 victory at St Peters home. Again working hard to control the game OISC looked to take the early lead, the constant pressure continued to wear down the SPOC defence and on about 20 minutes a cross into the box was flicked into the top corner by Marius Zanin giving OISC an early #lead. With much of the game still to play OISC defended hard but continued to attack when the opportunities presented to try to put the result beyond doubt. Late attacking by St Peters caused some moments of nervousness but in the end it finished 1-0 giving OISC a well deserved win, and first win against St Peters at Glenunga for many years.
Meanwhile on Sunday the OISC Women headed to War Memorial Drive to take on Adelaide Uni Black. Hoping to pick up from where they left off last week the girls attacked all day with the majority of play in the first half at their attacking end. Unfortunately despite this and the many chances they had, the score line at half time did not reflect the dominance they had shown. In the second half OISC continued to dominate the play with Alysia Panagakos scoring twice to give the girls a well deserved lead. In the end the teamwork and skills shown by the girls saw them win 2-1.
Next week, the Cup Competition returns for the men with only three teams in action on Saturday, the A Grade taking on fellow Saturday Div 1A side Comets on Greenhill Road while at Glenunga the B Grade also take on fellow Saturday Div 1B side MA Hawks and the E Grade face Sunday Div 4B side, Seaford. The OISC women continue in the league at Glenunga on Sunday taking on 2012 champions Seymour.

Welcome back to the first weekly wrap of Season 2013. The club taking away four wins and 12 points from the six matches played, with 24 goals scored across Saturday and Sunday.
The E Grade made the trip down to McLaren Vale to take on McLaren Districts with Danzo’s men enjoying a convincing 4-0 win. David Leach proving that he can still do it scored a brace with Gabriel Soriano also scoring his first goal for the club. They were also helped by the McLaren Districts keeper putting away an own goal . A clean sheet from OISC keeper Mark Andrawos gave them a flawless result.
The D Grade didn’t find the going as easy as the E’s with them fighting hard against McLaren Districts with both sides looking for their first win of the season. In the end Ivan’s boys fell short with a 3-1 defeat. A goal to Davide Cavuoto did provide something for the boys to celebrate.
The C Grade didn’t have to travel as far south, but still headed south to take on Sturt Marion. With Sturt coming off a convincing win last week, Greg’s squad came to play and comfortably took the points with a 3-0 win. David Williams again got on the scoresheet as did Raffaele Ceravolo and captain Frank Maio.
With Rocco away still on his European “Business Trip” the B’s took the early advantage over Sturt Marion with Andrew Rossi sneaking the ball into the back of the net from close range to give OISC an early lead. Clearly the better side the team had many more chances through the first half to extend their advantage but had to settle with a 1-0 advantage at half time. In the second half the B’s looked to hold on to their advantage and seal the game, but some defensive errors enabled Sturt to get back into the game and capitalise on the errors to defeat OISC 2-1.
The A Grade fielded a somewhat different looking line-up with a number of players unavailable this week. Nevertheless OISC were clearly the dominant side putting three past the Sturt Marion keeper in the first half to go into half time 3-1 ahead with many chances to have a greater advantage. Controversy was never far away with OISC having a clear goal disallowed for Chris Gauro when the referee determined that the keeper had been interfered with despite the ball having clearly passed him before any alleged incident took place. The second half took a different look with Sturt electing to change their keeper. They manage to quickly bring the score back to 3-2 and then were lucky to bring it level when again a dubious refereeing decision saw a penalty awarded. Determined to not let the game be taken away from them by such things OISC scored two more before the final whistle with Adam Carbone completing his hat-trick and singles to Chris Gauro and Marius #Zanin giving OISC a well deserved 5-3 win.
Meanwhile on Sunday at the Glenunga Superdome in the rain the OISC women took on Adelaide Uni Grey looking to get their first points of the season. It wasn’t long before OISC took the lead through a Niki Kapnistis goal. Despite having a clear advantage over their opposition the OISC women still put together many strings of good play which went unrewarded with shots going wide or over the cross bar. In the end the girls took a crushing 10-0 win with the other goals being spread between Sarah Tronnolone and Leah Contos who both scored hat-tricks, Alysia Panagakos (2) and Chloe Murray with her first goal for the club.
Following a largely successful weekend for the club; a big weekend at the Glenunga Superdome awaits next Saturday with the D/E Grades facing Strathalbyn and the A/B/C grades taking on rivals St Peters. The OISC women travel on Sunday to take on Adelaide Uni Black.

Happy new year from OISC!
Although it feels like the 2012 season only just ended, it is almost time for pre-season to begin, so please see the attached schedule for the OISC 2013 Pre-season Schedule . Please note that training will commence at the St Ignatius' College Senior School (2 Manresa Court, Athelstone) on January 21, before moving back to Glenunga in late February. This arrangement is similar to last years and has been made with ground hire limitations in mind.
If you are new to OISC in 2013, OISC Men’s Preseason 2013 is an open invite and we would love to have you join us. If you have any queries, or would like to join OISC in 2013 but are unable to make it to some pre-season sessions, please don't hesitate to contact our A & B Grade coaches, Con Kapnistis or Rocky D'Onofrio - their numbers are attached in the pre-season schedule below. Similarly, we look forward to seeing all of last years OISC members back for 2013 - please remember to contact your coaches if you are unable to make sessions. As always, please bring your runners, as well as boots and plenty of water to pre-season.
In addition, the Club is planning to send an OISC Men's representative side to Sydney on February 23/24 to play in the annual Jesuit Old Scholars Carnival with St Ignatius' Riverview & Xavier College. The two Clubs came to Adelaide in 2012 and we hope to reciprocate by sending a team of 14-20 players to Sydney for the round robin tournament. If you are interested in playing for OISC in 2013 and keen to come to Sydney for the mini-tournament, please check out the information on the Facebook page and get in touch with an OISC Committee member here
