Sports Round Up: Spring Term – Week 10

It’s been an exciting week on the sports pitches, below you will find a round-up of all of the action!

Hymers 7s Rugby Festival

On Tuesday six boys from King’s Hawford joined with a similar number from King’s St Alban’s to participate in the inaugural Hymer’s College Under 11 7s Festival. It was a great opportunity for the boys to join together and play as a King’s School Worcester side in preparation for formally joining together in September. The boys were accompanied by Mr Mason, Foundation Director of Sport and Head of Rugby at KSW, who was delighted to see how well the boys joined together. The festival was a resounding success, with the boys playing some excellent attacking rugby and scoring 33 tries in their 6 games.

Round Up

U9 Netball v Winterfold

The U9 girls played a home fixture this week against Winterfold. The girls had faced them a week before in the tournament and knew that they would have to work hard as Winterfold are a strong side. The game got off to a slow start for Hawford, however the girls found their feet and there were some excellent interceptions from Holly and Jetta. It wasn’t until the third quarter when the goals started arriving, with two well-executed goals from Harriet. Play was beginning to be end-to-end and Grace and Emily worked hard in the defensive positions to secure counter-attacks. In the final quarter, there were two more superb goals from Holly and Darcy.  Winterfold took the victory; however, the girls should be commended for their teamwork as it was one of the first times that they had worked together as a year group team. Winterfold’s Player of the Match went to Holly and Miss Lake’s Star Player was Jetta.

Round Up

U8 Netball v Winterfold

The Under 8s got off to a winning start, taking an early lead against Winterfold. Then the hard work that the team have been putting into their shooting and passing paid off and the goals kept coming, due to excellent passes into the Shooting D. Hawford had much of the possession but if they ever lost the ball, everyone reverted to their defensive positions and very quickly regained possession. All the girls played well and showed great teamwork.

Captain for the first time, Evangeline was awarded player of the match, and Chloe was also recognised for excellent play in attack!

Mrs Beech and Ms Holtham are delighted with the progress all the girls are making!
