Monday February 10, 2020 - KoW 16 v 21 Wells Blue & Sidcot


Year 11 Girls Netball

Wednesday afternoon, year 11 girls took to the court. They were up to play a back to back match, first against Sidcot and second game against Wells Blue. Sidcot arrived to the sports centre as our girls were warming up, preparing for the game. The first whistle goes and the game begins, our year 11 girls start strong with scoring the first goal. They manage to hold their own this quarter keeping the score within 2. Our defence were working hard to keep the attack under control in the second quarter, but the Sidcot team were on fire in the attacking end. Nevertheless, our defence never gave in, and our attack took every opportunity to shoot at goal. With our team on the side supporting, we were able to win the third quarter, scoring one goal more than Sidcot. Well done team. Regardless of the outcome of the game, every girl worked tirelessly, and it was a successful outcome for year 11 having a team of 18, and playing their first game without training.

Next is our back to back with Wells Blue. Our girls are pumped for this game, having had our warm up match. As Blue arrive, our girls position themselves and are ready for the match to begin. We get off to a great start, finishing the first quarter on equal points. Our centre court have managed to turn over several balls, which we have successfully scored from. A great centre court mix in the first quarter. As we enter the second quarter, the girls are beginning to feel the heat from Blue’s attack, they were on form. Regardless of the strength in Blue’s attack, our defence were able to break down their play and deflect some of their balls resulting in counterattack moves. We are now entering the final stages of the game, the girls are still working hard to control the Blue’s attack, but we just narrowly miss out. The final result being 21-16 to Blue. Irrespective of the result, the girls performance was fantastic, and their teamwork was noticeably brilliant.

Monday February 10, 2020 - Millfield 5 v 10 KoW


Year 9 Boys Rugby Sevens

Our second U14 boys sevens fixture saw us up against Millfield school. KOW started the stronger of the two sides with a 20-0 victory in game 1. This prompted Millfield to put out stronger sides for games 2 and 3. In the third and final game KOW showed an organised defensive display to pin Millfield back in their 22. KOW with this constant pressure gained a 5-meter scrum with 1 minute to go. Captain Will Creaser called for a strike move which paid dividends to seal the victory for the Kings boys.

Final results:

KOW 20 Millfield 0
KOW 5 Millfield 10
KOW 10 Millfield 5
