Year 4 PE
Year 4 have been working hard on their group balances in PE.
U9A Hockey v King’s Hawford (A)
Tuesday 29 November
Blue Coat 1 – 6 King’s Hawford
Most Valued Player: Storm Henshaw
This was certainly a game of two halves. One player should not make a team but King’s Hawford had their version of Wales’ Gareth Bale! We started with great attitude and continued confidence and Ojal scored from a cross from Storm but we were 5-0 down just before the end of the first half. We started the second half with a lot more belief in our ability; Kate made some excellent stops in her first appearance in goal and Natasha and Joanne were tackling strongly, linking with the midfield. Our midfield trio of Maya, Bea and Storm realised they were just as good as King’s Hawford and started to dribble the ball forwards with confidence, taking on the opposition, however we lost the second half 1-0. There were lots of personal battles on the pitch and the girls played for their school with pride and dogged passion. Well done, girls!
Scorer: Ojal Rao
U9B Hockey v King’s Hawford (A)
Tuesday 29 November
Blue Coat 11 – 2 King’s Hawford
Most Valued Player: Elspeth – the goal machine!
This was a warming performance on a freezing pitch. The BCS girls played with fierce determination against a plucky U8 King’s Hawford team. Elspeth scored most of the goals but this was a true team effort, with accurate passing, dogged defending and good awareness of space.
Scorer: Elspeth (8), Tara (2), Chloe (1)
U9A Rugby Festival at King’s St Alban’s (A)
Tuesday 29 November
Result: Blue Coat won 2, drew 1, lost 1
Most Valued Player: Ashley Jindu for always seeking to move forward with the ball, making sensible offloads and being aggressive in defence.
Blue Coat began well, snatching victory in their first game on the final play. The second game was level at half time but the opposition improved in the second half and ran out deserved winners. The final group game saw Blue Coat concede early but they responded well and ran out comfortable winners. In the final game the team were trailing at half time but a fantastic second half display resulted in Blue Coat gaining a draw. The boys showed much commitment and determination in cold conditions.
U9B Rugby Festival at King’s St Alban’s (A)
Tuesday 29th November
Result: No results recorded
Most Valued Player: Felix Iliff
On Tuesday the U9B rugby squad performed well at the King’s St Alban’s rugby festival. The squad played well in the first match against Winterfold, scoring a number of good tries. The next match against Hereford Cathedral School was a close affair which we managed to win thanks to two last gasp tries by Felix Iliff. Our third match against King’s St Alban’s was another close one where we got off to a slow start but came back strongly in the 2nd half. The final game was against a very strong King’s Hawford side but the players put in a good defensive effort tackling much better than they had in previous games.
U8A Soccer House Matches
Thursday 1 December
St George’s 1 – 4 St Philip’s
Most Valued Player: Richard Mahlberg-Schilling who didn’t miss a tackle and played some lovely through balls.
There was a strong chance that this game was not going to be played due to the frost, but thankfully the weather didn’t defer what was a superb House match. St Philip’s dominated the 1st third, scoring 2 well-taken goals in Milo Dowling and Oliver Almond. St George’s were then chasing the game and in the 2nd third they really did have the lion’s share of possession and some superb one touch opportunities in the box. However, St Philip’s rode the storm and managed to get an important third goal through Milo Dowling which really sealed the game. St George’s did get a lifeline through Rehaan Ali, but it was too late on in the game. Well played, boys!
Scorers: St George’s Rehaan Ali – St Philips Milo Dowling (2), Oliver Almond, OG
