Sport Report: 16/10/2015

Another excellent week down in sport with this week’s opposition for both the Girls in the Netball and Hockey and for the boys in Rugby being Newquay Tretherras, a school who always provide excellent competition and matches for all year groups across all sports.

Honours were generally about even between the schools, with Penrice recording two wins and two defeats in the Rugby, two wins and one defeat in the Netball and a win and a draw in the Hockey. The boys Rugby teams of Years 9, 10 and 11 were also in Cup action this week against Callington, Truro School and Newquay Treviglas respectively.

The Year 11s made a positive start to the week with a good win against a physical Treviglas side. The game was reasonably evenly poised at half time but an excellent performance in the second half saw Penrice come through to win 26-7, with Josh Barberry winning the honour of being the most valuable player. The Year 10s lost 60-0 against a very strong Truro School side, containing many County and Regional players and credit must be given to the boys for showing excellent character and continuing to battle and compete and not give up against a superior team. Max Keeling won the most valuable player away for his work at the breakdown. The Year 9s won on Tuesday away at Callington, in a game which was stopped for a serious injury to Sam Cornell who dislocated his finger and has subsequently had to have an operation in order to put things right again. The boys played well to record a 34-7 victory, and Sam Cornell was given the most valuable player award for his contribution prior to his injury; particularly his brave tackling.

On Wednesday the Boys Rugby teams of Year 7A and Year 7B, Year 8 and Year 9 teams travelled across to Tretherras to play this weeks fixtures. The Year 7s maintained their unbeaten start with a 25-5 victory, and the B team playing in their first match with several boys playing competitive Rugby for the first time also ran out winners 35-15, Alec Nile and Liam Masters were the star performers for the two Year 7 teams. The Year 8s competed well and battled hard against a strong Tretherras side, Charlie Dent and David Basford sharing the most valuable player award in a 29-0 defeat. The Year 9s playing their second game in two days showed great character in the second half to score two tries and remain competitive throughout, despite also losing 29-10 to a physically bigger, strong Tretherras team. Jack Hooper was the most valuable player for his excellent tackling and work in and around the ruck.

The girls had a much more successful week after a disappointing set of results against Wadebridge the week previous. The Year 11 and Year 10 teams won and won well, the Year 11s winning 32-13 and the Year 10s 47-5. Lucy Bray and Leah Henderson were the most valuable players. The Year 9s game was the most competitive game, losing out 17-23 with Danni Rouget winning the most valuable player award. There were no defeats in the girls Hockey, with the Year 7s winning 4-0 – Emily Hoskin the outstanding performer – and during the Year 8 game neither team was able to force a winning goal and the game finished 0-0. Evie Bishop was the most valuable player.
