During the 1971 season the M.H. S Under team had a reasonably successful run. in the A.C.T. Canberra Saturday Morning Comp., the team reached the semi-finals where they were defeated by a Canberra team, Hawks 14-3.
In the school visits we defeated Bega in League, were defeated by Queanbeyan and thrashed Dickson in Union.
The best forwards this season where Paul Mattner, Geoff Owen, Graham Weston, Robert Fabbro, who played half-back in several games and Stephen Lapham, who took out the award for the most improved player. In the backs, Des Blyton, Mark Spain, Michael Bruce and Phillip Haigh all played really well. Full-back Robert Pascoe played well throughout the season and his efforts are very promising.
On behalf of the team, I would like to thank Mr. Thorne for his much appreciated efforts, and I would like to thank the team for their co-operation throughout the season.
