U11 Dodgeball Team
The U11 Dodgeball team travelled to Inspire Suffolk on Thursday 22nd November feeling grateful the festival was being held indoors as the weather was extremely cold. This event was a festival so there would be no overall winners.
There were 9 teams taking part in the event and each school would play each other. The results are as follows.
Shotley - Overall WON - W2 D1
Coloneis - Overall LOST - L3
Otley - Overall LOST - L2, W1
Woodbridge - Overall WON - L1, W2
Rosehill - Overall WON - W3, L0
Gorseland - Overall WON - W3, L0
Rushmere - Overall WON - D2, W1
Tattingstone - Overall LOST - L2, W1
The whole team played well but James stood out during the matches, catching several balls to get the other team out and to let our players back into the game. The afternoon went extremely well winning 5 of the 8 matches overall and everyone taking part enjoyed the event.
U11 Boys Football Competition
Our first competition of the year and the U11 boys were excited to travel to Whitton Sports Centre with Mr Crump on Thursday 4th October to show off their football skills.
Ranelagh vs Henley
Henley started with a strong performance, defending well from the start against a well matched Ranelagh side. The opponents best chance came from a corner. A header from Ranelagh’s striker struck the post and went out for a goal kick. The winning goal came moments later. James collected the ball on the half way line, took on a player and buried a 15 yard strike in the bottom corner. A great start!
Final score: Ranelagh 0, Henley 1
Tattingstone vs Henley
Another strong performance from Henley but we failed to take our chances. Tattingstone keeper made a great save from a Zac strike. We had several shots, one after the other but Tattingstone defended very well. Against the run of play, a Tattingstone midfielder made a strong run, dribbling through two Henley defenders and spotting the ball underneath the helpless Harry.
Final score: Tattingstone 1, Henley 0
Halifax vs Henley
A difficult game for the boys. It was always going to be tough against a larger school. The team tried very hard but were outclassed by the team in royal blue. Halifax scored two outstanding goals from long distance.
Final score: Halifax 5, Henley 0
St. Pancreas vs Henley
Henley played well but unfortunately couldn’t get a shot on goal. St. Pancreas tested our defence and Harry had an excellent game in goal. St.Pancreas scored late on to win.
Result: St. Pancreas 1, Henley 0
Claydon vs Henley
Final game of the day. I thought losing three was very harsh and maybe deserved at least two victories where we had been on top. We had a chance to go in front early but the keeper made a great block from James. Claydon scored the first goal from long distance. Henley kept pushing for a goal and scored in the last kick of the game. James ran through beating three defenders before rolling the ball into the corner. Excellent goal from James again.
Final score: Claydon 1, Henley 1
