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.
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.
