U10A Football v Kings Hawford (A)
Date: Monday 5th February
Result: KH 3 Blue Coat 1
Most Valued Player: Such a team effort in the weather conditions – really proud of them!!
Report: This was fixture against tough opposition and Blue Coat didn’t disappoint. At half time a fantastic free kick from KH was the only goal dividing the teams. However an early goal from KH in the second half pulled them ahead and they were well organised. Blue Coat played with real structure and presence, Ashley and AY were performing wonders in defence having the confidence to defend 1-1. Alexander Dass was just superb all game, threading play and encouraging Blue Coat to get forward. William Brett scored our only goal with a wonder strike of his own but in the dying minutes, a superb corner, deflected header went passed the far post to almost equalise. KH then went up and solidified the result but it was such a high performance match.
Scorer: William Brett – free kick near the halfway line!

U9B Netball v Solihull
Date: Tuesday 13th February
Result: BCS 0-4 Solihull
Most Valued Player: Priyamvada Agarwal
Report: A very close and competitive game of netball in very cold conditions. Blue Coat played well, the girls were eager for the ball and tried hard to work the ball down the court but some tight defending by Solihull made it difficult. The girls improved as the game developed and started to pass quicker and move into space.

U9C Netball v Solihull
Date: Tuesday 13th February
Result: BCS 1-1 Solihull
Most Valued Player: Poppy Brigham
Report: This was a thoroughly enjoyable and exciting game to watch on a cold February afternoon. The girls came alive in the second quarter, and passed the ball beautifully from back to front. We had lots of chances and Ava kept her nerve to slot home a crucial goal, which gave us the lead. BCS exerted pressure for the rest of the game and dominated possession but in blustery conditions it was really tough to shoot. Solihull were always a threat when they got the ball in our half and they managed to claw a goal back in the 3rd quarter. Well done girls on such an exciting match!
Scorer: Ava Gisele Lee

U11B Netball v Hallfield
Date: Wednesday 14th February
Result: BCS 4-3 Hallfield
Most Valued Player: Willow McKenzie
Report: The Sports Hall was witness to a hugely exciting game of netball on Wednesday afternoon. Hallfield took an early 2-0 lead within the first 3 minutes of the match, and they continued to dominate for the rest of the first quarter. A huge amount of credit must go to the girls for the way in which they took to the court for the remainder of the game. They stunned the opposition in many ways, especially in defence. Willow and Gracie led the way with some outstanding interceptions, and as the side began to ‘treasure the ball’ a little more in attack we were able to feed Shalu and Emma who kept their nerve under the post. The final quarter became a little scrappy as BCS tried to hold on to their 4-3 lead, but that they did and the post match pizza and chips was much deserved – A great way to finish the half term!

U11A Football v Wolverhampton Grammar
Date: Wednesday 14th February
Result: BCS 2 – 3 WGJS
Most Valued Player: Elias Papaiaonnou and Michael Draper for working hard throughout the game and maintaining width in attack.
Report: Blue Coat began well taking a 2 goal lead. The first goal was slightly scrappy but the second followed a neat interchange of passing. Wolverhampton managed to pull a goal back before half time to trail 2 – 1. In the second half Wolverhampton became increasingly threatening and deservedly equali
sed. Both teams pushed for a late winner but it was to prove heartbreaking for Blue Coat as Wolverhampton scored off the last kick of the game following a failed clearance at a corner.
Scorer: Alexander Forty (1) Jeevan Johal (1)

U10 C v Kings Hawford
Date: Monday 12th February
Result: BCS 4 – 3 Kings Hawford
Most Valued Player: Kavya Maganty
Report: Natasha led the team in a good warm up to get the team ready for action. Elspeth won the toss and we played the first quarter tentatively. In the second quarter Lauren made some good attacking runs and Natasha worked really hard to get free and Elspeth scored our first goal. We went behind though 2-1. Emma showed real promise as she moved positions in both defence and attack and this didn’t phase her at all. Ishani and Kavya and Ava marked their opponents really well and Kings players were finding it hard to get free. Caitlin suddenly found the target and and her confidence grew as she scored the winning goal for her team. BCS came back and won 4-3.

U11 A v Hallfield
Date: Wednesday 14th February
Result: BCS 16 – 1 Hallfield
Most Valued Player: Prisyn Pagluica
Report: The team are starting to gel and it was great to see them putting things into the match that they have learnt during lessons and squad sessions. We started off well with great movement for centre passes being made with Anne Laure, Neave and Poppy. As ever we have a strong competitive defence and Prisyn, Teresa Isabelle and Sareena did not make things easy for Hallfield at all. In fact at Half Time after discussion with the Hallfield teacher it was decided to end the game as we were leading by 16-1. For the rest of the game I challenged the team to play in different positions and we continued to dominate the game. It was a fantastic show of how far we have come in just 6 weeks and hopefully with more focus we look forward to the upcoming Iaps event.

U11 B v WGS
Date: Wednesday 14th February
Result: BCS 3 -1 WGS
Most Valued Player: Ansh Agrawal
Report: The B team put in an excellent performance against a strong WGS side and 3 crisp finishes proved the difference. Blue Coat started strongly and deservedly took the lead early when a through ball was put away calmly by Ansh Agrawal. This was followed up quickly when a sublime cross by Hector Crow-Marcetic was coolly tucked away by Ibrahim Mahmood. After this WGS had a period of sustained pressure which resulted in only 1 goal thanks to some fantastic defending by Freddie Geoghegan who blocked and tackled lots of attacks. The 3rd goal came courtesy of a corner and was an exquisite volley by Rehaan Riaz. A good performance against a strong side – well done.
