Hockey Competition

13.02.2018

Last week our Year 5 and 6 pupils participated in the Cathedral Cluster School Hockey Competition. Competitors from St Michaels, Methodist, Flanshaw, Lawefield, the Mount and Snapethorpe Primary School took part in the tournament to decide who would be this years Hockey champions!

With a positive attitude amongst the Snapethorpe team, confidence levels soared after an opening 2-0 victory over Lawefield Primary. Snapethporpes second game came against the ever impressive St Michaels, ending in a 4-0 defeat.

Snapethorpe then took on a powerful Methodist team. Battling together, Snape Thorpe pupils, defended valiantly, hoping to catch Methodist on the counter attack, but attacking opportunities were few and far between. In the last 30seconds when a draw looked on the cards, the Snapethorpe defence was finally broken, and a 1-0 defeat fell upon the team.

The fourth match of the tournament was against eventual winners The Mount, whom only conceded one goal within the whole tournament! Again Snapethorpe set out to defend, in the hope of catching their opponents on the break away. After repelling repeated attacks, Snapethporpes defence was finally breached, when a corner, taking a huge deflection off a Snapethorpe defender found its way into the net.  Pupils continued to battle with all their might, but succumbed to two further goals resulting in a 3-0 defeat.

Our fifth and final game followed the same pattern as those previous with some outstanding defending by Snapethorpe, resulting in a number of outstanding goal line clearances! Having more success on the counter attack Snapethorpe came close to taking the lead on two occasions! Throwing caution to the wind, Snapethorpe pressed forward to gain an elusive goal, which unfortunately left our team open to the counter attack. For the second time within the tournament the Snapethorpe defence was breached within the final minute resulting in another 1-0 defeat.

All pupils put on a fantastic showing and gave it their all throughout the tournament and did not only themselves, but the school proud. Well done!

Winners: Lawefield

Snapethorpe Position: 5th

Our runners performed admirably, against a number of top quality runners, some of which have represented Wakefield on a National level. After an afternoon of mud, heavy breathing and sore muscles our pupils can be extremely proud of themselves. Mr Edwards was over the moon with the determination his team showed, with special mention going to Ebony in year 4, who came third out of 30 children in her race. Although all runners put in excellent performances, it was not enough to stop St Michaels from going home as victors. Well done everyone.
