On Friday 27th November, the U10s Football team defeated Whitemoor 4-1 with a very good all-round performance. Ashley H stepped in to be goalkeeper and did a great job. Good performances from Mohintan A (2 goals), Matthew B and Lohit D (1 goal each). I was pleased with the way the pupils conducted themselves during the fixture.
Matches vs QEGS
The Under 8A team unfortunately lost their fixture by 12 tries to 11 In an extremely close game, played in what may be fairly described as ‘inclement’ weather conditions, the children matched their opponents try for try in the opening stages and managed to lead the game by one try at the half time whistle.
Confidence was high going into the second half (perhaps a little too high as it turned out) with Nottingham starting the half with another quick try to lead by two. As the game wore on, QEGS showed their organization, determination, pace and power to get back on level terms and then take the lead. Tired legs, weighed down by mud and rainwater began to slow us down. A late try gave Nottingham glimmer of hope but the clock (and fading light) were against us.
Final score 11-12 with tries shared between the team, with particularly notable individual efforts from George T and Fletcher P.
The Under 8B team lost their match 12-8. Lead by team captain Sam G, who scored six tries, we managed to get some good passes in but struggled to get those tags off the opposition. With the rain getting heavier the boys kept going and with sheer determination Arun S and Rafe R scored a try each.
Well played by all.
The Under 9B team were 4-0 down at half time but improved sufficiently in the second half to draw 1-1. Final score 1-5.
MOTM was Ben H
The U10A team were fired up for what they knew was going to be their biggest test of the season. Then followed a resemblance of the battle of the Somme, with wave after wave of attack and crunching defence in the muddiest of conditions. After going 2 tries down early on, the team showed great resilience and determination, regaining belief when Luca V. broke away to score a try just before half time to make it 2-1. The second half was even more intense with both teams fighting with everything they had. Mathew B. broke away on the wing to level up the scoring, before Joshua L. clinched an amazing victory with a try in the very last minute. An outstanding performance capped a very rare win against the strongest rugby school on our fixture list. The boys should be very proud of themselves and should look forward to playing The Elms next week in an attempt to go an entire season unbeaten.
‘Manager of the Month’ goes to Mr Baker and Mr Simpson for the U10’s results.
Rayan M for his honesty, stepping in to help School at the last moment and for offering to help Mrs Bruce without being asked.
