SCHOOL SPORT UPDATE NOVEMBER 2021
Y5 took part in the Maghull and District Schools Y5 hockey tournament competing against 5 other local schools. We didn’t know what to expect having not played hockey matches before, but they all took to it straight away winning their first game 2-0 against Davenhill. This was followed by 2-0 against St Gregory’s, 3-0 against Green Park and a very enjoyable 4-0 against St. John Bosco. The last match we took our foot off the gas and only managed a 1-0 win against St Andrews.
So 5 games played, all won, 12 goals scored, 0 conceded and a tournament win ! Absolutely fantastic from the 5 players who were Dylan, Ethan, Chloe H, Brogan and Poppy. Every player was fantastic in defence and attack, but a special mention for Poppy who scored 9 of the goals, or maybe it was 10 ! Huge well done to you all. You will be able to collect the winning trophy at the sports award presentation evening at the end of the school year.
5 a side Football Tournaments
The girls football team took part in a 5 a side tournament reaching the semifinal stage. This was a great effort as the team were missing 2 of their best players through illness and injury. Very well done to all the girls from Y4 and Y5 who took part; Harriet, Brogan, Chloe, Sophia, Bella and Poppy. We are sure you will go back next year and do even better !
The boys football team also took part in the Maghull and District 5-a-side tournament reaching the semi-finals. There was real disappointment when they were winning their semi-final with seconds to go, but then conceding a late goal leading to a penalty shoot-out. Unfortunately, it wasn’t to be and we all left feeling deflated. However, the boys had played really well and should be very proud of their performance.
