Quick Sticks Hockey

On Thursday 5th March 22 children took part in the large school's quick sticks hockey tournament.
We had 4 teams in the competition, with teams 1 and 3 playing in league one and teams 2 and 4 playing in league two.
Team 1 won all of their league games to finish top of their league and progress through to the final
Team 2 finished third in their league, just missing out on a place in the 3rd place playoff.

In the final, we took an early lead against St Andrew’s and looked to be heading for the win until with seconds remaining St Andrew’s launched a final attack and were awarded a penalty goal as Harry’s desperate dive blocked a goal bound effort with his body. The game went in to extra time and we really stepped up our play to run out winners by 4 goals to 1.

Girls Football – County Finals

On Saturday 8th February, Brooke H, Brooke F, Lacie, Sophie, Sofia, Carmel, Emily and Maya represented the school in the county round of the Danone Cup for girls at Wainfleet Road, Skegness. In total there were nine teams taking part, each of them representing their area of Lincolnshire. In our group there was Lacey Gardens (representing Louth district), John Harrox (Spalding), Boston West (Boston), and Pointon (Sleaford).
We got off to a good start comfortably winning our first game 3 – 0 against Pointon.
Our second game saw us take a 2 – 0 lead against Lacey Gardens before conceding a late goal which made the final score 2 – 1.
Our 3rd game, against John Harrox, was a much tighter match with neither team managing to score as the match ended 0 – 0.
We knew going into our final game a draw would guarantee a place in the semi-finals, unfortunately Boston West scored the only goal of the game with the very last kick of the match.
At the end of the group stage we had finished in second place and so progressed through to the semi-finals where we had to play Manor Leas (Lincoln) who had won the other group, winning all their games and scoring lots of goals in the process. We soon found ourselves 3 goals down but in spite of this we did not give up and managed to get a goal back just before halftime. In the second half, we looked the stronger team and when we got a second goal a draw looked possible but unfortunately their goalkeeper was able to pull off a couple of good saves. Manor Leas went on to defeat Boston West in the final.
After losing the semi-final, we had to pick ourselves up for the 3rd/4th place play off against Westgate (Lincoln). At the end of normal time the score remained 0 – 0 so the game went into extra-time. We took the lead and despite a few late scares were able to see the game out and secure third place overall.
