Year 5/6 football tournament
The year 5/6 boys and girls football teams were entered into a Middlesbrough schools cluster event held at the new sports village on Thursday 24th September. In total around 25 schools had entered making it a tough competition to win.
The boy’s football team were represented by Mackenzie, Matthew, Lawrence, Alfie, Taylor , Dylan, Ellis, McKenzie, Kenzie and Harley.
The boys had a very difficult group made up of competitive teams resulting in winning 1, drawing 1 and losing 1. These results actually made them qualify for the top group on the afternoon, essentially getting a harder group than the morning so the boys knew they needed to work extra hard as individuals but more importantly as a team! Unfortunately they didn’t progress to the semi-final however the boys should be extremely proud of their performances and behaviour from the boys was excellent.
Player of the tournament went to Mckenzie on the day for working exceptionally hard, demonstrating great pieces of skill and scoring 2 important goals!
The girl’s team were made up of 10 pupils who were Faith , Megan, Annalise, Chelsea, Nicole, Lois, Leah, Leonie, Kezia and Alice.
The girls started the morning in a tough group that included schools such as Pallister Park, Pennyman and Corpus Christi. The girls made a fantastic start to the morning round of games playing 6 games and winning 5 only conceding 3 goals. This meant that the girls finished 1st in the table going into division 1 for the afternoon round of games.
During the afternoon round of games saw us play 4 games coming up against some of the best girls teams in Middlesbrough such as St Edwards and Berwick Hills. The girls played some fantastic free flowing football winning 3 out of the 4 games sending us through to the semi-final against Captain Cook.
The semi final was a tight game with some very good play from both teams ending in a goalless draw. This meant it went to penalties with Park End coming out on top winning 4-3 with a brilliant save from Leah Mulraney. The final was then contested by Park End and St Edwards, during the afternoon round of games St Edwards had beaten Park End 4-0 so this was going to be a massive challenge but one that the girls believed they could overcome. The game started with a high tempo both teams testing each other. The deadlock was then broken when St Edwards got a penalty in the last few minutes and scored to make it 1-0, St Edwards then went onto score another goal to make it finish 2-0.
Fantastic effort from all of the girls during a tough day of football, finishing as the 2nd best girls team in Middlesbrough and also going onto represent Middlesbrough in the Tees Valley Finals in Darlington.
Both teams on the day made Mr Lovatt, Mr Holmes and Mr Storey really proud!!
