Sports Round Up
Tuesday 16th January saw our girls take part in the first round of the Indoor Competition. A fantastic display of teamwork and skill saw our girls finish top of the group, scoring 15 goals and only conceding two!
The girls qualified in 1st place for Finals Night, which took place on Friday 19th January against the other top seven teams in Gloucester. Waterwells flew through the group stage with victories against Norton 3-1, Finlay 2-0 and Churchdown 4-0.
The semi-final against Upton was a tough test. The girls fought hard but suffered a narrow 2-1 defeat. Emotions ran high, having conceded a penalty and had two goals disallowed – it just wasn’t meant to be. The girls did themselves and the school incredibly proud and we look forward to the cup competitions in the next few weeks.
Team: Ibhalukho, Lola, Chloe, Anja (1 goal), Kathy-Kay (11 goals) and Leilani (13 goals).
Golden Boot: Leilani: 20 goals, Kathy-Kay: 16 goals, Anja; 1 goal, Chloe: 1 goal.
On January 22nd Waterwells played in the Boys Indoor Tournament at GL1. There were four teams and we played six games. The boys played well. We lost some games and drew one, with Cordel scoring 1 goal and Lloyd scoring 3. Unfortunately the team didn’t make it to the final but had a great time. (By Adrian, Year 1 – Team mascot)
Team: Charles, Cordel, Kornel, Lloyd, Alfie and Callum.
The team trained hard under the watchful eye of Mrs Hipkins and performed exceptionally well on the day to finish a fantastic 2nd place overall. A special mention to Taylor-Mai who placed 1st on the bench and 3rd with her floor routine, out of 50 gymnasts. A superb achievement!
Team: Abigail, Holly, Ruby, Taylor-Mai and Natasha.
