Sport Report: 12/02/2016

Another wet week has seen a complete washout for the boys with their scheduled home fixtures against Newquay Tretherras being wiped out without a ball being kicked. It has therefore been a week where the girls have dominated proceedings with Football, Netball, a County Netball tournament and female sports leaders all participating with excellent final results.

On Wednesday two mixed Y7/Y8/Y9 teams of girls went to Brannel to partipate in a round robin Football tournament against two teams from Brannel with some excellent results. The girls only conceded two goals all afternoon with Lucy Blake in particular inspired in goal. Charlotte Whitmore, Olivia Nelson and Chelsea Pope all from different year groups formed a potent front three with Chelsea Pope from Y7 netting herself five goals and the most valuable player award, Charlotte Whitmore and Olivia Nelson shared several goals between them. Within the other team Claudia Beaumont and Emily Collar excelled but the most valuable player award went to Alisha Best for an exquisite composed finish to an excellent team goal.

Girls Football MVPS – Chelsea Pope and Alisha Best.

Also on Wednesday three Netball teams also travelled to Brannel and also returned undefeated in three very competitive games. The Y7s played some excellent Netball recording a 11-9 victory, Hannah Dawes was the most valuable player. The Y8s drew 6-6 in an extremely competitive game, Penrice were behind but a change of strategy and personal in specific positions saw them come back to earn a deserved draw, in order to improve the girls must look to retain the ball slightly better if they are to have an impact on the opposition. Finally the Y10 were the better team and deservedly won a game which allowed them to try different combinations for their County tournament on Thursday the final score concluding 12-9 with Maddie Lewis the most valuable player.

On Thursday the U15 Girls travelled to Camborne for the their annual County tournament, it was an excellent day for the girls who came in fifth out of 19. A full report of the girls day including results and highlights will be in the next report after half term.

Finally, on Tuesday a group of Y10 girls, Annie Brown, Alive Avery, Kelly Robinson, Ava Gough and Thea Hollebon all led practical PE activities to groups of Y5 and Y6 at Mevasgissey Primary School, it was a wide range of activities which suited the needs of many students and were enjoyed by all. The girls did an excellent job and will be returning to Mevagissey after half term.

After half term Football and Netball fixtures continue and as the term continues, attention will start to turn to the summer and Athletics and Cricket.
