Tuesday 8th November
Well done to year 9 and 10 girls who played Hockey against Finborough on Tuesday 8th November. The girls started the match competitively showing some excellent play and great commitment. The score at the end of the half time was 1-1. A special mention has to go to Bella who adopted a new role of goalkeeper and make some outstanding saves. Also the most improved player has to go to Katelyn who particularly moved around the pitch brilliantly working hard to track down the opposition. The final score was 3-1 to Finborough. However, every player should be very proud of their efforts. There has been a significant improvement in game play this term. Well done girls!!!
Monday 7th November
Gosfield fielded 3 teams against Holmwood House, allowing every boy to play a full match. Gosfield acquitted themselves very well against the numerically and physically bigger Holmwood sides. The A team fought back well to eventually lose 5-3. The B team were down 3-2 at half time and although the opposition ran away with the match late on, the boys kept trying to the end. The C team lost 3-1 in a very even match where Holmwood capitalised on some errors late in the match. All boys should be proud of their effort and behaviour, well done.
Thursday 4th November
Gosfield took a large squad of players to compete in a rugby match against Cambridge International School. Unfortunately CIS were down on numbers so the match was reduced to 9 aside. Gosfield rather sportingly gave every boy a run and in so doing cost themselves victory, this however, was not the goal and was acknowledged by our opposition. It was really pleasing to see the effort of all players, in what turned out to be a very high standard, entertaining match.
Wednesday 2nd November
All boys in year 5 and 6 took part in a very entertaining series of matches against Cambridge International School. Evasive running was much more evident from both teams than determined tagging as big scores abounded. Honours were evenly shared in the 6 matches, 4 draws, 1 win and 1 loss. All boys should be commended for the spirit and endeavour shown.
Tuesday 1st November
Congratulations to all year 9 and 10 girls who played the return leg of a hockey fixture against New Eccles on Tuesday 1st November. The girls attacked strongly and maintained possession to win a number of short and long corners. The girls were able to practice some set pieces and score some impressive goals from this play. A special mention has to go to Joely, Emily, Bella, Madi and Esther for scoring or setting up the goals. The final score was 5-0 to Gosfield. Well done girls!
