Boys football match v Wheatfields

On Thursday the boys played against Wheatfields in a friendly match.  It was very cold and our pitch is now very muddy, so it wasn't easy conditions.  In the first half we had a few shots on goal but were unable to put them past their keeper.   In the second half we came out strongly and battled hard to win the ball, eventually our determination was rewarded with a goal.  After that we went from strength to strength with Jake scoring 2 superb goals.  The final score was 5 - 0 to us. A great result, which was well deserved.

Girls Football Friendly vs Garden Fields

Last week the girls football team had a friendly match against local school Garden Fields.

The girls played brilliantly in ever worsening light and weather and many girls out of their normal positions as I tried out a new formation. taking a while to gel together the girls went down 1-0, however struck back almost immediately leveling the game at 1-1, Francisca scoring from an assist from Maisy.

The game for the rest of the half was very tense with both teams having good chances, one of which Garden Fields managed to convert moving the score to 2-1. the Girls push on to level again winning a penalty soon after but unfortunately Francisca couldn't add to her tally as the goal keeper made a great save.

In the second half with the rain falling heavier and the light fading both teams struggled to create chances and the game ended 2-1 to Garden Fields. The scorelines are getting closer and closer and I'm sure in the new year the girls will get the result to match their performances.

Year 5 Football Match v Fleetville

On Monday year 5 boys had a friendly football match against Fleetville.  All the boys played very well against a tough opposition.  Despite a few chances on goal we were unable to score and Fleetville went on to win the match 6-0.   I was very proud of the boys as they kept battling to the end.

Only 3 days later, after they played Maple, the netball team faced Garden Fields. Although both Bernards Heath teams were winning at half time, they unfortunately lost. A team 6-5, a very close game and B team lost 4-3, also very close. After playing amazingly well, the girls hope to win their next match against Abbey.

On the 23rd of November after two unsuccessful attempts, Bernards Heath A and B netball teams managed to win against Abbey school when they came to Bernards Heath. Abbey still played extremely well, but lost. The A team managed to score 3 amazing goals making the overall score 3-0 to Bernards Heath A. The B team also played an extraordinary match and won 4-1.
Well done A and B netball teams!

Football match v St Bernadettes

On Monday the football team played St Bernadettes in the Wix Cup.  It was another hard game against a very good side.  St Bernadettes scored first, but we quickly responded with an equaliser, then just before the end of the 1st half they scored 2 quick goals.   In the second half they kept up the pressure and scored 3 more goals. Although we continued to play well and had a couple of good chances on goal we were only able to score one more goal.  The final score was 6-2.
Let's hope our luck changes in the last game next week before the Christmas break.

Football Match v Cunninghamhill

On Thursday the boys A team played against Cunninghamhill in the league.   Unfortunately it was not going to be our day and by the end of the first half we were 4-0 down.  In the second half we showed a bit more of our usual style of play, but were still unable to score.  The boys battled hard, but at the end of the game the score was 6-0 to Cunninghamhill.
This is our first loss in the season, so I think the boys can still be very pleased with their results so far and use this game as a learning experience.

Cross Country Friendlyat Garden Fields

More than 60 children from all year groups took part in a Cross Country meet at Garden Fields.  There were 3 schools competing; Garden Fields, Kings and ourselves.  The races were divided up into boys and girls and involved running around their field 2 and half times.  It was quite a hard run with an up hill section.  All the children ran really well and can be very pleased with themselves.  There were some individual successes which included several 1st and 2nd positions.  Overall we came 1st which was an amazing result.
Well done to all the children who took part, we are very proud of you and I look forward to seeing some of you at district sports and future cross country events.   Thank you to the parents for your support.
