Sport Report: 23/10/2015

The final week of half term has been an excellent one for girls sport with a clean sweep of victories across all age groups away at Bodmin.

The Year 7 team won comprehensively; the girls’ defence proving to be unbreakable as they did not concede a single goal whilst scoring 20 themselves. They were also excellent in regaining and keeping possession as well as scoring. Emily Hoskin won the MVP award for her performance. The Year 8 and Year 9 teams won 18-6 and 13-3 respectively, Neve Rowe-Hall and Elsie Bennetts winning the MVP honours. The Year 10 team were also excellent in defence with Leah Dooner in particular excelling from goal defence, the MVP award went to Leah Henderson however for her excellent shooting and collecting of rebounds. Finally the Year 11 team won 23-14 in the closest game of all, Charlotte Brett was voted MVP.

On Thursday a group of girls travelled to Truro High School to participate in the Under 16 County Hockey Tournament where they came 4th in their pool. Although not necessary reflected in the results of this tournament, Hockey continues to make great strides at Penrice. This is reflected by the numbers of girls and boys participating in training on Tuesdays and Fridays and the results in the weekly fixtures so far this term. On Thursday the girls competed well throughout and their performances have continued to improve. It was also a valuable experience for all, particularly some of the girls who were in Year 9 and are available for the Under 14 County Tournament on 5th November. Susie James was the MVP for Penrice during the tournament for performing excellently throughout.

In the only Rugby of the week, Penrice had a 50% success rate, with the Year 10s making it through to the next round of the cup after a hard fought victory against Saltash. The final score of 26-0 was a fair result in the end but Penrice were made to battle all the way. It was their skills at the breakdown and handling skills which saw them win out. James Evans was again the most valuable player for his contribution. The Year 8 team unfortunately lost at home against local rivals Fowey 7-10, also in the Cup. The game was much improved in terms of quality from the previous meeting earlier in the year, in a game where there were several handling mistakes from both teams Fowey were able to capitalise on those Penrice errors. In the second half Penrice threw everything at Fowey, including having the ball held up over the try line but were unable to force that crucial try. Archie Bees was MVP for his excellent, brave committed tackling.
