Year 7/8 Rugby v Oundle

Despite the windy conditions the boys had a super afternoon of rugby. In both matches the teams were very evenly matched, which made for thrilling contests which went back and forth in terms of possession and tries.

The A team ran out winners 50-40 thanks to two late tries and the B team won 40-35 in another very close finish.

Many thanks go to the Oundle staff and pupils and to our parents for their touchline support in the gale.

U11 Hockey success

Yesterday the U11 girls enjoyed a successful day out at the Stamford hockey festival. The girls looked very smart in their new kit and all had a great time playing some brilliant hockey. The A team won all of their matches, with outstanding performances from the whole team but, in particular, the forwards shone and helped produce 9 goals across the afternoon. Particular mention should go to Olivia for contributing five of these.

The B team were also unbeaten, winning three of their matches and drawing 0-0 in a close game against Stamford. An excellent team performance with moments of brilliance from all. A special mention should also go to Alice, Tilly and Sophia (year 5) who stepped up and played very well to set up all three goals for Emily.

Well played girls.
