U11 Regional Football Tournament
We couldn't have asked for a nicer January day as we travelled to Mill Hill for the ISA Regional Finals. Our two teams played seven group matches and gave their all in the intense 5v5 format. Mr Butler's team finished second in their group having won 5 and drawn 2 and Mr Carey's team had a mid-table finish in a tough group that included the eventual winners Normanhurst.
This meant that Mr Butler's team went through to the Champions League competition with the prospect of national qualification. Having eased through the last 16 match, we were undone by a piece of brilliance in the quarter final and were beaten 1-0. This was the first goal conceded in the tournament which made it hard to take for the boys having scored 21 goals in 9 games. That is sport though and the boys will learn from their experience.
Mr Carey's team also suffered a quarter final defeat in the Europa League competition. This was another close game that was decided by the odd goal and the boys can be proud of their performance.
Tuesday 28 January U9 Netball Match vs Gayhurst
On Tuesday, we hosted our first netball match of the season! 1 team from Gayurst came over to play our year 4 girls. We were able to put out 3 teams, which meant that all of the girls had a chance to play which was fantastic.
We came away with a mixed bag of results, 2 of our teams won against a strong Gayhurst team, while the other team missed out on the win by only two goals. Afterwards, we went into the lunch hall and all enjoyed some shortbread. It was a lovely fixture, and it was great to see some of our parents out to cheer on the girls. We look forward to the rest of the season with these girls - they made us very proud!
Wednesday 29 January U11 Netball Match vs York House
York House came over on Wednesday to start off the U11 netball season. We each had 3 teams which made for quite a busy afternoon!
We were so proud of all of the girls, after lots of training their efforts really seemed to pay off. There was some fantastic attacking and defensive play, which secured us 3 wins out of 4 matches. We look forward to the rest of the season with these girls - they made us very proud! It was lovely to have so many parents come and support us, and the afternoon was finished off nicely with a slice of lemon drizzle cake!
