A team started extremely well with goals from Lilyah and Jude. However, Carclaze managed to match this and score a couple more than us. Both of the teams were very closely matched and we went into the third quarter hoping that we could close our 4 – 2 gap. In third quarter, we had a few attempts to shoot but couldn’t quite get the ball in the net. However, Carclaze had a very strong shooter and managed to score a few more goals. George and Lizzy managed to score three more goals in the final quarter, but Sandy hill managed to match this and also scored three goals. This meant that again we couldn’t quite catch up with Carclaze’s A team. The final score was 5 – 13 to Carclaze. Player of the match goes to Lizzy for her best game of the season and playing all of her positions really well.
B team – Kyle (C), Jess, Tineasha, Libby, George, Holly and Aleeah
The B team started the game well with great communication and team work. Holly and Libby worked really well with each other to score a goal each. Carclaze managed to score one goal, meaning that we were in the lead as we went into the third quarter. However, Carclaze managed to score two goals in the third quarter putting them slightly in the lead. This meant we had a tense final quarter ahead of us. We had a few attempts at shooting, but unfortunately, we couldn’t quite get the ball in the net. The final quarter remained goalless. It was a very close match and Carclaze just managed to win with a score of 3 – 2. Player of the match goes to George.
Netball v. St Stephen 28th February
A team – George, Lizzy (C), Jude, Jasmine, Lilyah, Aleeah and Dexter
The A team took an instant lead with four goals from George and two from Lilyah. The A team were using fantastic teamwork and were working well to get the ball into our shooting third. Despite their efforts at shooting in the second quarter, we couldn’t quite get the ball into the net. In the third quarter, St Stephen managed to score a couple of goals. However, the A team fought back and Lizzy managed to score another goal. In the final quarter, both A teams were marking their opponents brilliantly meaning that, again, the quarter remainder goalless. The game ended as 7-2 to us. Player of the match goes to Aleeah for the fantastic effort she put in throughout the whole game, especially with her shooting.
B team – Libby (C), Jess B, Jess W, Rivers, Tilly and Amelia
We had to delay our match as much as possible in order to wait for the B team footballers to join netball. However, the B team football was running slightly behind so we had to start. St. Stephens didn’t quite have a full B team so some of their A team players had to play. The B team didn’t let this worry them and they got off to a good start with Jess scoring three goals. However, St. Stephen also managed to score a goal, so we went into the third quarter with a close score of 3 – 1.We had some great attempts from the Goal Shooters and Goal Attacks but unfortunately the third quarter remained goalless. In the final quarter, Rivers and Libby were working really well together and managed to score a goal each. The score ended as 5 – 1 to us. This was a well-deserved win for the B team, who all played extremely well, despite being two team members down! Player of the match goes to Rivers for his great defending throughout the whole game.
Mr. B. has almost sold out of medium socks, but has reordered (3 weeks approx. to arrive). Mr. B. has several pairs of the small size which would suit the Infants and Yr 3!
Report on Biscovey Touch Rugby Tournament (9/3/17)
Our A team played rugby league rules for the first time in a competition at Biscovey Academy yesterday against eight other schools. In the league section we won four of our first five games beating Pondhu A (2 – 1), Treverbyn A (3 – 0), Biscovey A (1 – 0) and St. Mewan B (4 – 0). Despite losing our last game to Bishop Bronescombe (0 – 2) we qualified as group winners. In the semi final against St.Mewan the scores were level with five seconds to go when St.Mewan scored. It was a tough one to take but our players can hold their heads up high as they played some great rugby and defended brilliantly especially as they haven’t had much time to get used to the new rules. A really good effort all round with a special mention for Kieran Mcauley, who was player of the tournament for our team.
Team: George, Kieran, Lizzy, Libby, Millie, Finlay, William, Owain, Ross
Thank you to Mrs. Meens for helping with supervision and to those parents who turned up to support the team (the children and staff really appreciate it).
