U10 HOCKEY V BROMSGROVE
Players of the Match: Ava-Mae and Kara
After another week of practice on the astro, both teams looked more sure of themselves and the tasks ahead. The team with Miss Wilkinson made some excellent tackles and were unlucky not to score, particularly in the first half where Katie came very close on a number of occasions. Flo handled the defence well and no real problems were caused by Bromsgrove and any attack was easily cleaned up with Reha having nothing to do in goal. Over on Mrs Bennett’s side, the team grew in confidence in the second half and Emily drove forwards on the right as we have gone through in class and she took her shot on goal and scored. Some good tackles were made in defence from Pip and Alice and as we gain more experience we can carry the ball out of defence and get the opposition on the counter. Both teams have shown progress already from their last match so it will be good to see what each week brings.
U9 RUGBY V WARWICK
Players of the Match: Garrick, Peter, Jaiveer, Rohan, Sam, and Seb
The U9 Rugby teams hosted Warwick in a plethora of rugby with BCS hosting 6 games on a glorious afternoon. Using skills developed over the last few weeks, all players were able to put that into a game situation with lots of tackles, running forwards with the ball, tries scored, and develop understanding of laws in a competitive match situation. The games were played in a great spirit and all players after the game ventured off to enjoy their cake and juice with a smile on their faces after a great afternoon.
U9 HOCKEY V KINGS HAWFORD
Result: Blue Coat win 2-1, Blue Coat win 1-0
Players of the Match: Eloise and Sukhmani
What a great display of hockey on show with some great positional play from Emily coming in from the left hand side and going onto score. With Nina looking dominant in the middle, both she and Adeline worked hard to distribute the ball to Eloise and Anai. Annabel got her reward from runs forward scoring two goals. In the next match, although at times were a bit bunched together, we still looked to try and distribute the ball when we could with Sukhmani being relentless in her tackles and Chloe staying out on the wing. Jaiya got a great individual goal and I know Mrs Somerville would have been really pleased to see what she has been working on recreated on the pitch!
U11 RUGBY V WARWICK
Bar a bit of transport trauma, the U11’s had a great afternoon of rugby at Warwick on Wednesday. The teams with Mr Gregory and Mr Melia both had very close games, where the principles we have been pushing (to go forward and support) were very evident. The rest played an internal fixture prior to Warwick arriving. The boys showed real commitment smashing into each other. There were a huge number of offloads as they adjust to playing the free flowing rugby; more in tune with French flair then the ‘stuff-it-up the jumper’ rugby that England fans are accustomed to.
