Year 5/6 Hockey Tournament 31.10.17

20171031_171611_edited.jpg

A huge well done to our fantastic team who played in the Wilson Stuart Active Society Hockey Tournament at Bishop Vesey Grammar School - we are very proud of your excellent sportsmanship and playing! It was a very tense evening, with Mrs Mytton's nerves in tatters, but what an incredible result and we got to bring the trophy home too!

Well done, also, to the children who attended the after school training clubs to be considered for the team - you showed great commitment and perseverance!

The report below was written by some of our Year 6 boys who took part in the tournament:

'The hockey tournament was an incredible and competitive experience. There were 8 schools all together. We all arrived and warmed up, and were ready to go. We found out who we were playing against and the starting line-up for our team, then we got onto the pitch where the tension started to build. We played excellently and dominated against Maney Hill, with us having many close shots – unfortunately, it ended in a 0-0 draw. Credit to their keeper who made some good saves!

Next, we were against our main rival school – Deanery! Once again, we played extremely well and kept possession of the ball for most of the match. This time, we pulled it off successfully with a 1-0 win to Whitehouse Common! Woo! It was a fantastic feeling and all our supporters were in high spirits – including our biggest supporter, Mrs Mytton, whose nerves were now gathering back together!

We had a short and well-deserved break while Maney Hill and Deanery played each other. It was pretty tense, as if Maney Hill won then we would have to go into a penalty shoot-out. Maney Hill ended up winning and so it was at this point that we sent Mrs Mytton’s nerves into shatters as we had to have the penalty shoot-out. The pressure was on and we both did so well that it kept going and going. Unlucky for us on the final shots, we missed one and Maney Hill managed to score. But never mind, we were proud of our match playing. Fortunately, we were still through to the semi-final as the runners-up.

In the semi-final, we were against Moor Hall. We found this match a little easier as we had had a break. We played incredibly well again, keeping the pressure on and making some great saves. Thankfully, we were successful in scoring and won 1-0…we were through to the final!

When we got the final game pitch, we saw our opponents… Maney Hill! Again, this was an incredibly close game with both teams playing well and us keeping on the pressure. We had some close shots but the match ended up going into extra time as we were at 0-0! At this point, the game could go either way, but we were confident as we had had some good possession. All of a sudden, the lights went out and we were plunged into darkness! Bishop Vesey couldn’t get them back on after us waiting for 15 minutes so we had to end the tournament. Frustratingly for us, the only way to decide an overall winner was to go back to the penalty shoot-out with Maney Hill (because our other matches were 0-0 and we had won the same amount of matches in the tournament) so we ended up taking home the silver medals!

Because of the situation and how close it was, Wilson Stuart decided that it was only fair we split the trophy so we came home with it for the first 6 months!’

Whitehouse Common look forward to more success next year!

The stamps must be used. Please tear the stamps off the envelope, leaving a 1cm border around the edge. There's a stamp box outside the Oaks office to post the used stamps in.
