2018-19 Sports Reports

Y5/6 Swimming Gala @ Abbots Bromley School – Thursday 13th December 2018

Two teams from Y5/6 attended this event to showcase their swimming skills against other schools from East Staffordshire. 

 

The teams competed in different races for breast stroke, back stroke front crawl and a woggle race. Races came thick and fast for individual girls and boys, and mixed relays took place for each of the different swimming strokes. Just like the Y3/4 Swimming Gala, the competition was of a high standard with some excellent swimmers taking part from across various swimming clubs. Nevertheless, our children portrayed high levels of determination and drive to finish every race and push themselves until the very end. We are extremely proud of both teams today for their attitude.

 

A huge congratulations to all involved - it was great to see so many new faces representing the school even at Y5/6.

WINNERS! Y3/4 Sportshall Athletics @ Robert Sutton – 10th December 2018

 

After the Y5/6 children winning their competition, EH entered the Y3/4 Sportshall Athletics competition in high spirits. Two teams of 12 children from Y3/4 looked forward to trying something new and for some of them, experiencing competitive sport for the first time. 

 

Both teams competed in a number of different track and field events throughout the evening (various running races; obstacle relays; a chest push; a soft javelin throw; speed bounce; standing long jump; 5 strides and the vertical jump) - with the children competing in no more than 2 of each from both track and field.

 

As the boys and girls competed separately with their scores being added together at the end of the night the children were unaware how their performances would compare to those from other schools. This spurred the children on to show excellent displays of athleticism across a range of events and portray high levels of determination and most importantly enjoyment throughout. Team 2 finished a very respectable 6th out of 12 other teams achieving 244 points. Whilst Team 1 finished with a total of 344 points, finishing above Anglesey who finished 2nd with 326 points to take home the gold.

 

It was fantastic to see so many new faces wearing the school kit and representing the school which hopefully leads to them competing again very soon. A massive congratulations to both teams:

 

Team 1 - Sophie, Maisie, Indie, Alexi F, Jada, Mille H, Ibrahim, Olly, Jamie, Harry S, Harry J and Max S.

 

Team 2 - Mya, Hollie, Sienna, Katie, Millie M, Ruby, Alexi, Elijah, Riley, Caiden, Finley, Owen and Blake.

 

 

Archery Competition @ Robert Sutton - 6th December 2018

Two teams made up of Y3, Y4 and Y5 children from this term's school archery club represented Edge Hill in this annual competition at Robert Sutton. The children took four turns each at shooting 3 arrows at the targets, with their scores contributing to their team's total. Though still developing their archery skills, the Edge Hill teams racked up some good scores and did themselves proud by finishing around half-way in the 18 team competition. With a bit more practise, they should do even better next time! However, all our archers deserve a huge Well Done for doing so well!

Well done to: Sam, Richard, Finley, Maisie, Sophie, Jessica, Jack, Ollie, Keeley, Ashaz, Arthur and Oliver!

 

Edge Hill Fives and Sixes v Pennine Way Y5 and Y6 @ Robert Sutton - 3rd December 2018

Our second set of friendly sports fixtures against Pennine Way took place after school today when the Y5 and Y6 football teams from both schools met for the first time.

Edge Hill Fives 6-0 Pennine Way U10s (Cole x3, Tyrun, Charlie P, Max T)

The Fives pinned the Pennine Way team into their own half and gave them little opportunity to threaten McKenzie's goal. Although the PW team were a spirited side, the Fives repeatedly regained possession and made the most of their chances.

Edge Hill Sixes 2-2 Pennine Way U11s (Max B x2)

After going a goal down, the Sixes pushed forward and levelled from a Harrison throw-in which Max B got his head on to direct into the net. In the second half, after a scramble in front of the PW goal, Max B got his second goal when he was in the right place to bundle the ball over the line. PW equalised late in the second half and that was how the match ended. Overall, a tidy and promising performance from the Sixes, but probably a fair result in the end.

Edge Hill Fives 4-2 Pennine Way U11s ( Zack, Cole, Max T, Charlie F)

The Fives took the lead after Zack powered forward to slot the ball home, but within seconds PW got an equaliser. Cole put the team back in front, then Max T stretched the team's lead after latching on to a cross from Zack on the right. After moving into midfield, Charlie F got on the scoresheet when he was first to a fumbled loose ball by the PW goalie. The team looked to be cruising at this point, but PW made the most of too many players being at the other end and got a goal back. However, it was another great performance from the whole Fives team!

Edge Hill Sixes 8-0 Pennine Way U10s (Max B x5, Jack S, Omarion, Harrison)

The Sixes made good on the promise they had shown in their first game and ran away with the match. Max B made the most of his forward role with a haul of 5 goals, benefiting from the excellent supply he got from the rest of the team. Well done Sixes for showing your class!

Many thanks to Pennine Way for the matches. We hope to meet again in the future!

Football League: Anglesey v Edge Hill @ Anglesey Astro - 29th November 2018

Anglesey 1-1 Edge Hill Sixes (Harrison)

The Sixes played Anglesey first, creating many chances but were unable to find the net. They worked hard and defended well, getting the ball forward into the right positions but, as is often the case with a team that dominates play but doesn't manage to score, were punished when Anglesey got the first goal.  Despite going behind, the boys kept fighting and were unlucky not to pull a goal back after some excellent crosses into the box which begged to be nodded in.

However, in the second half, Harrison surged forward to level the match. It was a good performance from the team and they probably deserved more than a draw, but well done for rescuing the point, boys!

Harrison, Jack S, Leo, Max B, Harry, Josh, Jack Sh, Charlie C, Regan and Omarion

 

Anglesey 1-4 Edge Hill Fives (Cole x2, Charlie P, Zack)

The Fives went on the attack straight away with a trademark Max T cut-back from the byline to Cole. Charlie P got the team's second with a great shot from outside the area before a misunderstanding at the back gifted a tap in to Anglesey. At times, the Fives looked a different class, especially when they worked the ball wide to runners around the Anglesey defence. But to highlight the versatility in the team, the next goals both came from long range: the first from Zack who thundered one in from the half-way line, followed by an excellent free kick from Cole which found the top corner. McKenzie deserves a special mention for a flying save to his left and for a commanding performance between the sticks, though every one of the team deserves a huge Well Done for playing their part in a strong team performance.

Charlie F, Tyrun, Sonny, Zack, Cole, McKenzie, Charlie P and Max T

Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent County Finals and Staffordshire County Cup v Richard Wakefield - Wednesday 28th November @ St George's and Edge Hill.

 

A full day of football for our Y5/6 Girls' team started at the Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent County School Games Finals at St George's Park. The girls had qualified for this competition after winning the East Staffordshire tournament earlier this year.

 

The competition consisted of 2 separate leagues each with 5 teams. In our first two games, we faced teams from Cannock and Rugeley then Newcastle-under-Lyme. Both of these games were extremely close with us having the majority of the play. Unfortunately, we could not put our chances away unlike the opposition who both scored late goals to win 1-0.

 

In our third game, we faced a school from South Staffordshire with us dominating the play and improving as the tournament progressed. We came close to scoring our first goal when Skye hit the post with a great effort. A special mention goes to Marnie and Fearne who both defended brilliantly to keep the game at 0-0 towards the end. The final game saw our girls play a school from the North of Stoke. We started well and had chances after some great play from Mia W and Lily. We were awarded a free kick relatively far out towards the end which was smashed home by Mia W to make it 1-0 to us. Shortly after, Chloe rattled the post after another great move down the left from Marnie and Skye. The game ended in a 1-0 win to EH. Unfortunately, the girls had not done enough to advance into the final. However, they were excellent from start to finish and have proved to be a credit to our school and East Staffordshire.

 

That afternoon, the girls travelled back to school to play a Staffordshire County Cup game against Richard Wakefield. This was the girls' first taste at a 9-aside game playing over a longer period of time (20 minutes each way). The rain began to fall which added to the already tough conditions of the muddy field. We quickly made it 1-0 with a great goal from Lily who smashed home a cross from Mia W. RW responded quickly to make it 1-1 before Chloe tapped home from a few yards out not long after to put EH back in front. RW then ran through to equalise for the second time. This did not faze our girls as they again went down the other end to score a 3rd after Mollie hit one which looped into the corner to make it 3-2 at half time.

 

During the second half, RW equalised to make it 3-3 to add to the tension of an extremely close game. Both teams were battling hard and coping very well with the tough weather conditions and it was RW who again took advantage of the open space to make it 4-3 with 5 minutes to go. In the last minute Mia W ran through weaving in and out of the opposition's defence but could not beat the GK. The game ended 4-3 to RW.

 

A massive congratulations goes to our girls today who all played with a smile on their face, giving 110% from the first game in the morning to their last kick in the afternoon.

WINNERS! Y5/6 Sportshall Athletics @ Robert Sutton – 19th November 2018

In recent years, Edge Hill has come close to winning this very competitive event several times but has been pipped to the top spot each time. This year, however, our team of 10 boys and 10 girls from Y5 and Y6 did brilliantly to win the competition!

In the girls’ team, special mentions should go to Brooke, who notched up a fantastic score of 56 in the speed bounce event; Scarlett and Fearne, whose strong running blew away the opposition; Alivia, who once again showed her amazing throwing ability in the soft javelin, and Mia W and Paris, who quickly learned how to do huge triple jumps! Also, a huge Well Done should go to Mia F, Chloe, Skye and Katie-Mae for performing brilliantly to get some excellent times and scores to help win gold medals and the trophy for the team!

There were some excellent performances from the boys in the track and field events. The boys had lots of pace in the track events, particularly from Harrison, Max and Charlie, and Kian hurled some long throws in the soft javelin. Kudos goes to Liam and Ole, who stepped in at short notice, and to Omarion, Jack, Charlie and Cole for competing brilliantly! Go team Edge Hill!

 

Congratulations all involved: Paris, Mia F, Mia W, Fearne, Scarlett, Brooke, Skye, Chloe, Katie, Alivia, Kian, Harrison, Max, Liam, Ole, Omarion, Charlie C, Cole and Charlie P.

Y3/4 Swimming Gala @ Abbots Bromley School – Thursday 15th December 2018

Two teams from Y3/4 attended this event to showcase their swimming skills against other schools from East Staffordshire.

The teams competed in different races for breast stroke, back stroke front crawl and a woggle race. Races came thick and fast for individual girls and boys, and mixed relays took place for each of the different swimming strokes. The swimmers from Edge Hill achieved their best results in the individual races, with several finishes high in the placings. We even managed to win 2 singles races. As usual, the competition was of a high standard with some excellent swimmers taking part, but the team gave it their all.

 

A huge congratulations to all involved - it was great to see so many new faces representing the school.

Staffs FA U11 Cup 2nd Round v Ryecroft @ Ryecroft Middle School – 12th November 2018

After receiving a bye in the 1st Round, current Staffs U11 Cup holders Edge Hill faced Ryecroft Middle School in the 2nd Round of this year’s competition. This meant a trip out into the sticks to Rocester for tonight’s match.

Ryecroft 1-4 Edge Hill (Cole, Sonny x2, Jack S)

Right from the off the team camped themselves in Ryecroft’s half, creating chances down both wings and through the middle. Max was excellent on the right and was supplied again and again by Zack, Harrison and Charlie F, but it was Cole who put the team ahead when he blasted one in on the left! It was no more than the team deserved.

In the second half, the team continued to pepper the Ryecroft goal, hitting the bar and the posts several times. However, after pushing more players forward and creating a break through the middle, Ryecroft pulled a goal back to level the match. The Edge Hill players increased their effort but were thwarted again and again by a packed defence. When the whistle blew, the score remained 1-1 and went into 5 minutes each way of extra time.

The first half of extra time saw corner after corner awarded to Edge Hill, but Ryecroft defended well by crowding the near post, and the number of defenders in front of goal stopped numerous chances from crossing the line. We were starting to plan who would take the penalties when, in the second half of extra time, super-sub Sonny got one through the defence to put the team ahead again! The team didn’t let up on their pressure in front of the Ryecroft goal, which finally started to pay off with another goal from Sonny and a great solo effort on the left from Jack S!

Well done team for a great performance and a very well-deserved win!

The team: Charlie P, Zack, Omarion, Jack Sh, Sonny, Charlie F, Harrison, Mckenzie, Cole, Max and Jack S!

Y3/4 Football @ Pennine Way - Tuesday 6th November 2018

 

This afternoon, our Y3/4 football team travelled to Pennine Way in Swadlincote for their second football fixture of the year. There were 3 other teams present: Pennine Way A, Pennine Way B and a school from Derby - OVS. 

 

In the first game EH played against Pennine Way B and managed to win 2-0 with a left-footed rocket from Olly Fairhurst and a goal line tap in from Caiden after some great work down the line by Ollie Goodfellow. 

 

In their second game, the boys faced OVS, who are a team from Derby. A much closer game finished with a 2-1 win to EH after 2 more great goals from Olly F who did not put a foot wrong during the game. Throughout the game, Elijah and Harry showed some brilliant defending and looked solid until one slip which allowed OVS to score a consolation goal. 

 

In their final game, EH played against Pennine Way A who proved to be their toughest opponent of the afternoon. EH started how they had played both of their first games - on the front foot. This quickly resulted in them going 1-0 up with yet another goal from Olly F after some superb pressing down on the opposition’s defence. Pennine Way A were back level after a great run from their number 12 who weaved in and out of the EH team to make it 1-1. The final 6 minutes proved to be a ‘typical cup final game’ as it was end to end with chances for both teams. EH definitely had more chances with great efforts from Olly, Ollie and Caiden. However, the OVS goalkeeper made some excellent saves and kept his team in the game.

 

A brilliant first meeting between the three schools and a massive congratulations to EH: Louis-Eric, Charlie, Harry, Elijah, Caiden, Zack, Olly and Ollie.

Y3/4 Football Tournament @ Marston’s – 23rd October 2018

Lots of local schools were represented in this Y3/4 football tournament, with two of them coming from Edge Hill.

Edge Hill I was drawn against 4 other East Staffs schools in its group and played a match against each of them.

Edge Hill I 0-0 William Shrewsbury II

Edge Hill I 0-2 St Modwen’s I

Scientia I 0-2 Edge Hill I (Ollie G, Elijah)

Christ Church 1-3 Edge Hill I (Ollie F x2, Charlie)

The players had not played together before and took a while to find their shape. However, they got better and better as the tournament progressed and were unlucky not to go through to the semis with 2 wins and a draw. Special mentions should go to Ollie G, who was always a force to be reckoned with out on the wing, and Ollie F who was skilful and always a threat in the middle of the pitch! A huge Well Done to:

Ollie F, Ollie G, Charlie, Elijah, Louie, Jaydn, Max and Caiden!

Edge Hill II also got better as they played more matches. They were unfortunate not to win their final match as they were starting to make good progress up the pitch!

Edge Hill II 0-0 William Shrewsbury III

Edge Hill II 0-1 Richard Wakefield

Edge Hill II 0-4 Scientia II

Edge Hill II 0-0 St Modwen’s II

Another huge Well Done to:

Sam, Holly, Harry, Logan, Ibrahim, Alfie, Jack and Finley!

2nd & 3rd Place - Year 5/6 Boys' Football Tournament @ Marston’s - Thursday 18th October 2018

 

This evening, two teams of Y5 and 6 boys competed in the East Staffordshire Boys’ football competition held at Marston’s. The competition consisted of 3 groups: Edge Hill A (Y6s) were in a league with 4 other schools; Edge Hill B (Y5) were also in a group with 4 other schools. Each game was an 8 minute match one-way with the top teams from each group advancing into the semi-finals along with the best runners-up from the 3 different leagues.

 

Edge Hill A were drawn against 4 other East Staffs schools in their group and did brilliantly to remain unbeaten and win the group!

Edge Hill A (Harrison) 1-0 Holy Trinity

Edge Hill A (Jack) 1-0 Yoxall St Peter’s

Edge Hill A 0-0 St Modwen’s B

Edge Hill A (Regan) 1-0 Oldfields B

The team progressed to the semi-final stage as group winners and faced the Oldfields A team. Edge Hill A played really well and were probably the dominant side in open play. However, when the whistle blew the score was 0-0. Inevitably, a penalty shoot-out was needed to decide which team would go through to the final. Though the 5 penalty takers did their best, it was Oldfields who scored the decisive penalty. The team was disappointed to be knocked out of the competition in such a way, but all the players should be very pleased and proud of their performances tonight as they were one of the best teams there! A huge Well Done to:

Harrison, Jack, Leo, Charlie C, Jack S, Omarion, Harry, Josh, Max and Regan!

 

Edge Hill B played against St Modwen's A in their first game. and very quickly found the net with a thunderbolt from Max from a tight angle. This was followed by a great header from substitute Sonny who made it 2-0.  The Y5s ran riot in their second game beating Christ Church 7-0 in an 8 minute match which is very impressive. All the team worked well together during this game and chipped in with the goals: Cole x3, Max x2 and Zack claiming the two deflected OGs from whipped in crosses. The boys found Horninglow tougher opposition and could not break them down and drew their third game 0-0 after both teams nullified each other. In their final league game, EH B beat William Shrewsbury A 1-0 after a great move down the right wing was finished off by Cole.

 

EH B finished top of their group and advanced to the semi finals after an undefeated group stage. They faced best runners-up from Group A - Yoxall St Peters. Having never played this team before EH went into the game not knowing what their opposition were like. The game was very close throughout with McKenzie making some fantastic saves to keep EH in the game at times. The opposition goalie had a big kick which was dealt with by Charlie and Zack who won nearly every header and second ball. The final whistle blew and the team had a penalty shoot-out between them and the final. McKenzie made a fantastic penalty save during the shoot-out with Max, Charlie F and Zack all scoring too to send the Y5s to the final with a 3-2 victory.

 

In the final, EH B faced Oldfields A, who had beat Edge Hill A (Y6s) on penalties in the other semi final. Another very close game with few chances between two strong sides had its deadlock broken by a 'ghost' goal which was awarded by the referee to the surprise of both teams. EH B found themselves 1-0 down for the first time in the tournament. However, they reacted well as soon after, Cole smashed home an equaliser to send them into another penalty shootout. Unfortunately for the Y5s, this shoot-out went against them and they lost 3-1 on penalties. Even though the boys were extremely downhearted, they should hold their heads up high as it is one of very few defeats they have suffered in the last 3 years after dominating in previous tournaments as well as tonight. A huge congratulations goes to the Y5s for finishing 2nd and bringing the silver medals back to school.

 

Well done to:

McKenzie, Zack, Charlie P , Charlie F, Max, Sonny, Tyrun and Cole.  

Football League: Edge Hill v Victoria @ Edge Hill – October 16th 2018

After school today, the school football teams played their second league fixtures of the season.

Edge Hill Fives 8-0 Victoria (Max T x4, Cole x2, Zack, Sonny)

Max T made sure the Fives got off the mark quickly after converting a penalty awarded for a foul on himself early in the half. Cole slotted home the team’s second goal, then Zack left the goalie rooted to the spot with a shot from well outside of the area. The first half ended with the team 3-0 up with Mackenzie having little to do in goal, showcasing the team’s dominance. The second half continued in the same vein as the first half with the team moving forward together and arriving in front of Victoria’s goal in strength. Max T notched up 3 more goals, Cole got his second and Sonny got onto the scoresheet after following up on a save by the goalie. Overall, it was a very impressive performance by the team which attacked and defended as a unit. Well done Fives for a brilliant performance!

Edge Hill Sixes 3-2 Victoria (Charlie C x2, Harrison)

Despite plenty of effort and opportunities, the Sixes went a goal down midway through the first half. However, it took just a minute for the team to get an equaliser following a shot from Harrison which hit the post; fortunately, Charlie C was in the right place to bundle the ball over the line! A break through the Edge Hill defensive line resulted in Victoria taking the lead again, but the team raised its game to fight back to gain another equaliser, this time from a solo effort from Harrison. Not long after and following a shot on goal by Omarion, Charlie C scored his second goal from close range à la Gary Lineker, giving Edge Hill the lead for the first time in the match. Victoria threw everybody forwards in the closing minutes, leaving huge gaps behind them, but the game ended 3-2 to the Sixes. Well done team for raising your game to win this match!

Winners - Year 5/6 Girls’ Football Tournament @ Marston’s - Tuesday 16th October 2018

 

This evening, two teams of Y5 and 6 girls competed in the East Staffordshire Girls’ football competition held at Marston’s. The competition consisted of 2 groups: Edge Hill A were in a league with 4 other schools; Edge Hill B were in a group with 5 other schools. Each game was an 8 minute match one-way with the top two teams from each group advancing into the semi-finals. 

 

Edge Hill A drew their first game 0-0 with Richard Wakefield before beating Horninglow 1-0 in their second match after a thunderbolt from Lily. In their third game, the girls drew 0-0 with a team they had never faced before in Richard Crosse. In their final game, the girls beat William Shrewsbury B 3-0 after they managed to make the most of their chances - goals from Mia W, Millie and Skye. 

 

Edge Hill B played against William Shrewsbury A in their first game. Some of the girls had never played competitive football before and this showed as WS ran away 6-0 winners. However, this did not faze them as they were in action again straight after against Rykneld and came back from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 with goals from their stand out player Chloe. The girls then lost against St Modwen’s and Eton Park in close games and managed to draw 1-1 against Scientia after a poacher’s finish from Holly in their final game. Edge Hill B should be extremely proud of their attitude and resilience as they were a credit to the school.

 

Edge Hill A qualified for the semi-finals after winning their group. They faced off against William Shrewsbury A who had finished 2nd in the other group. There were very few chances in the game as both defences stood very strong throughout the game. A special mention has to go to Paris who made some excellent saves to keep EH in the game. The game then went straight to penalties where each team had a total of 9 penalties each. Mia W, Lily and Fearne all scored their penalty with the other girls not successfully converting theirs. It fell to Lily to strike home the winning penalty in a sudden death situation to send the team into the final.

 

In the final, Edge Hill faced old rivals Richard Wakefield who had finished second in the same group as the girls. There were some fantastic performances from Fearne in defence and Paris again in goal who made some brilliant saves. Mia W and Skye were unfortunate in front of goal and came inches from snatching the game. The final whistle then went which sent the game to extra time where both teams continued to nullify each other until the very end. With seconds to go, a Richard Wakefield player hit a shot from near the halfway line which looked a certain goal until Paris made an amazing save to send the game to another penalty shootout. The girls were not fazed by a second shootout in as many games and were all wanting to take a penalty. Mia and Lily both scored their penalties and with RW missing both of their first two after more saves from Paris, Marnie stepped up to hit her penalty into the top corner. RW then missed their final penalty resulting in the girls winning the shootout 3-0. A fantastic achievement for the girls and the school.

 

Well done to all involved: Maisie, Morgan, Katie S, Katie H, Chloe, Mollie, Holly, Paris, Lily, Fearne, Marnie, Millie, Mia F, Mia W and Skye.

Football League: Edge Hill v Outwoods @ Outwoods – October 11th 2018

Today saw the school football teams’ first league matches of the season!

Outwoods 3-1 Edge Hill Sixes

The opposition had clearly been working on their crossing across the goalmouth as they went 2-0 up with close range headers. In the second half, the Sixes fought back well and got a goal back after an excellent breakthrough by Brooklyn. Though his shot was saved, it came back for him to poke his foot out, causing it to rebound off the post and goalie into the net. The teams looked evenly matched at this stage of the game and another goal would have changed things dramatically, but Outwoods caught the Sixes out again and increased their lead, leaving the Sixes too much to do. Hopefully the team will get off the mark in next week’s match!

Outwoods 1-2 Edge Hill Fives (Cole, Max T)

Within a few minutes of the kick-off, the Fives went a goal up after Charlie F crossed from the by-line for Cole to put away. The team continued to put pressure on the Outwoods defence, passing the ball neatly into space to create opportunities for each other. However, it wasn’t until the second-half that the second goal went in, when Max T hammered in a shot from a tight angle on the right. Almost immediately after the second goal, Outwoods got one back with a Charlie Adams special from the centre of the pitch which dropped in over the backpedalling Mackenzie! Though it was a fine shot, it was a one-off goal. Well done Fives for making a winning start to the league programme!

Year 3-6 Boccia Tournament @ Robert Sutton - Thursday 11th October 2018 - 3rd Place

 

Tonight, Edge Hill entered 3 teams into the annual Boccia competition. All children involved have been attending our weekly Boccia club and were eager to show off their skills. Each team competed in a group against schools from the surrounding area. There were a total of 17 teams from 9 different schools with each team consisting of 4 players with 3 pupils playing each game. 

 

Edge Hill 1 - Played 3, won 2 and lost 1.

Edge Hill 2 - Played 3, won 1 and lost 2.

Edge Hill 3 - Played 4 and won all 4!

 

All three teams played some fantastic Boccia and were extremely accurate with their throws. Unfortunately for team 2, they did not qualify for the semi-finals but still portrayed an excellent attitude. Edge Hill 1 and 3 both qualified for the semi-finals to play Windsor Park and Thomas Russell. In two very close games, both of our teams missed out in a place in the final after losing 2-1 in each of the games.

 

Overall, a very successful evening of sport for Edge Hill. Well done to all involved: Zac, Harry G, Richard, Sophie, Jack B, Jessica, Sienna, Katie, Jak F, Alexi, Faith and Harry S.

2nd Place - Year 5/6 Netball Tournament @ St Modwen’s - Tuesday 9th October 2018

 

On Tuesday October 9th, Edge Hill entered 3 teams in a netball tournament at St Modwen's School. The weather was perfect and everyone played with enthusiasm. The 'C' team were our least experienced players but they won one game and drew one game and lost one. So a fantastic effort! The 'B' team had several tough games against experienced teams but they won two games, drew one and lost two. Well done!

The 'A' team won all their games in the group stage and went into the final against Outwoods. After taking the lead with a goal from Harrison, we went down 1 goal to 2 but we scored an equalizer which meant a 'golden goal' would be the decider! Unfortunately, Outwoods scored so Edge Hill were runners up. However, a great result from 9 teams and 100% effort from everyone. A special mention to Aneira who was the only Y5 member to play this time but let's hope we get more Y5 children competing next year!

 

Also, many thanks to Harrison, who played even though he has so many other sporting commitments.

Team Sports Day - September 27th 2018

This year's sports kicked off with Edge Hill's annual team sports day. The children competed in their houses to complete a series of skill based activities. Points were gained by scoring goals in netball and football, hitting targets in golf, cricket and archery, and dribbling a hockey ball and rebound catching. Extra points were gained by working together as a team and by supporting each other. It was the Red team who came out on top this year, helped by a magnificent points total of over 800 from one of their two Y4 teams.

Top
