U9 Tag Rugby and U9 Girls Hockey Festival At St. Hughs
Our Tag team played six games against a variety of teams from the surrounding area. We narrowly lost our first two games each by only 1 try. We then went on to win the next two quite comfortably as the team grew in confidence. The fifth game which we lost was closely competed between ourselves and the St Hugh’s A team. The sixth and final game was against The Grantham Prep. team. They played hard against us but we managed to edge out a win with some excellent running and passing. Well done boys for your effort and enthusiasm throughout the afternoon.
Playing hockey was a new experience for many of our girls but they all gained lots of playing time on the astro turf and began to pick the game up the more they played. Many of the coaches commented on their natural ability and praised the girls on their improvements throughout the festival.
The girls won one of their four games - Well done girls for your commitment and hard work in every match.
