This year we were only allowed to take 6 teams to this event. Each team consists of 2 people and they have 20 minutes to try to get to every single point on the map and get back to the start before the time is up.
You are awarded 10 points for each point that you reach which means a maximum of 200 points. If you are late to return then you are deducted 10 points for every minute you are late back.
The winning team are normally the tram that get all 20 points and in a really quick time.
Our best result of the day was 9th place.

Tonight we played a friendly game V Clarborough to give Boys that train every week but who haven’t yet represented school an opportunity to do so. They loved every minute of it and although they lost quite heavily they didn’t give up and still came off the pitch smiling. Well done Boys, we are really proud of you all.

Today our Girls team had a really great football match against Redlands school in the champions of champions league finals. Both teams played some excellent football. Amelia was amazing on the right wing combining well with Alicia in defence and Miley up front. We had so much possession but just couldn’t score. In fact it was Redlands that took the lead after a long ball over our defence and Chloe had no chance to save in goal. Half time was 1-0, however after the break Redlands scored again and seemed a lot stronger. We gambled and pushed Alisha up the pitch and it paid off after she scored. We had more chances but the Redlands keeper was to good. Final score was 2-1 to Redlands. A great game and good advert for girls football. #TeamWorkMakesTheDreamWork

Today we took 13 girls to take part in this event. We split into two teams, years 3&4 under 9 and years 5&6 under 11.
The Girls played 7 games each and majority of the games were 6 or 7 a side. This meant everyone got to play in every game. As it was a festival and not a competition there were no winners or losers. All the Girls were told to have fun, make friends and play football.That is exactly what our girls did. 👍

The Girls team played 3 matches this afternoon all of them were well contested and played with teamwork, respect and the girls improved every game.
We had 3 girls playing for the first time and they all showed excellent skills and are learning the game.
The first game V Prospect we played well but chased the ball a bit and didn’t really play like we can. We lost 2 - 0 but didn’t give up and showed resilience.
The second game V Carr Hill was a bit more evenly contested. We took the lead with Darcy Fox scoring in her first ever match for school. They equalised and then went ahead but with 2 minutes to go Bella Hothersall scored to bring it back to 2-2. That was the final score too.
In our final game against Norbridge we really struggled but still didn’t give up and showed pure determination and perseverance in the true spirit of gameship.We lost 2-0 but the score doesn’t reflect at all on the Girls effort and performance.
