Spring Term Boys’ Sport
Please be reminded that Years 4, 5 and 6 will be on football next term. Each boy will require shinpads for both lessons and matches.
Year 3 will be on Tag Rugby. A mouthguard is optional.
As the grounds get muddier and wetter, please can you ensure your son has a pair of studded boots. This will help their footing and possibly prevent slipping.
U8A Hockey v Winterfold (A)
Thursday 1 December
Blue Coat 3 – 6 Winterfold
Most Valued Player: Oona Knight
Having negotiated playing indoors rather than cancelling the match due to the frozen pitches, we set off to Winterfold. The girls were very excited and the start couldn’t come soon enough. Emily chose our end as Captain and we were off. We started somewhat bedazzled by Winterfold and they scored 4 goals in quick succession. The second 10 minutes started with excellent tackling from Sofia and Oona and we started to pass and play as a team.
We scored from a brilliant dribble forwards from Holly and cross into the shooting circle which Maysoon went onto shoot and score. Indira tackled hard in defence and Glory chased every ball. Jaya continued to press forwards and put pressure on the defence and Oona scored with a brilliant individual goal.Gloriosa gaining in confidence stopped any further shots. We lost the third 10 minutes by 1.
A match well played which may have had a very different score line had it of been on grass.
Scorers: Glory (1), OG, Oona (1)
U11A Rugby v Winterfold (A)
Wednesday 7 December
Blue Coat 60 – 20 Winterfold
Most Valued Player: Fintan Dowling for his all round performance both in attack and defence.
In their last rugby match for BCS the Year 6’s served up a fantastic performance which had a bit of everything for the rugby enthusiast: great support play, searing line breaks, and aggressive defence which meant that by half time, the game was effectively won. In the 2nd half we managed the game to help Winterfold develop their confidence and it was a more even affair. That said, it was a fantastic way to finish what has been a good term for rugby with some notable victories against RGS, King’s Hawford and Winterfold. The players yesterday certainly did themselves proud and can look forward to the football term enthusiastically.
U11B Rugby v Winterfold (a)
Wednesday 7 December
Blue Coat 60 – 10 Winterfold
Most Valued Player: Henry Martin for his all round effort.
The B team had a resounding victory to finish the term running in a number of excellent tries. Whilst scoring lots of points was great, the most pleasing aspects were the improvements made as a defensive unit. It was great to see the likes of Henry Martin and Usmaan Hassun putting in some tackles and really having a positive impact on the game.
