Spring Term Sports Round-Up: Week 9

In this week’s Spring Term sports round-up we review the matches that have taken place during the week. This week we have had football fixtures against The Elms, Winterfold and RGS as well as netball fixtures against Winterfold, Malvern St. James, Abberley Hall and RGS The Grange.

U11 v Winterfold

On Wednesday the U11 girls enjoyed really lovely game of netball against Winterfold.

The team showed strong defensive skills and had obviously listened well in training and demonstrated careful passing and managed to retain possession. As the game progressed the girls made many interceptions and their scoring rate was improving every quarter.

Lots of girls from Year 6 were involved and this allowed coaching staff to find the best combinations with several positional changes. When the team had the ball they played with confidence and their play flowed well. The girls just need to be more patient in attack!!

Winterfold awarded players of the match to Eden & Katia. Winterfold’s coach also recognised a player who tried really hard throughout each quarter and the award for the player who tried the hardest went to Florrie C. Mrs Beech agreed this was well deserved and earned.

U10 Netball v Winterfold

The U10 girls played a fantastic game this week against Winterfold, Miss Holtham was really pleased with the girls team work and the effort they showed throughout the match. After the game Miss Holtham said “it was the best game the girls have played all season”.  Izzy was the captain for the afternoon and Isla managed to get player of the match.

U9 RGS The Grange Netball Tournament

Six U9 girls headed to RGS The Grange on Tuesday to take part in a netball tournament against 11 schools.  In the group stage, the girls played 4 matches against Winterfold, Malvern St. James, Abberley Hall and RGS The Grange.  The girls started with tough competition against Winterfold who were strong on the attack. Moving forward, the girls secured two wins against Malvern St. James and Abberley Hall, taking advantage where they could, and great defence ensured they couldn’t get near their attacking third.  The final game of the group stage was against RGS The Grange who were performing well all afternoon.  The game was very equal, and play was end-to-end.  There were some fantastic partnership work from Harriet and Jetta in the attacking positions, and Robyn supported well in centre.  The final score was a draw, bringing great anticipation as to who would head into the semi-finals. King’s Hawford’s girls finished an excellent joint 2nd in the group stages, however when it came to goal difference, RGS The Grange (who also finished 2nd) advanced with 1 less goal conceded.  The girls played fantastically well and should all be commended for playing some great netball.  The girls who played were Harriet, Darcy, Robyn, Annabel, Jetta, and Emily.  Miss Lake’s star player of the day went to Harriet for finding space well and scoring 9 goals under pressure!

U8 Netball v Winterfold

This week the U8s travelled to Winterfold for some 5 a side netball, the girls were split into two teams on arrival. The girls played some brilliant netball and it was great to see their skills improving. The matches finished a little early for tea so all the girls from both teams were mixed up and split into 4 teams and they played some shorter games whilst team building with Winterfold girls.

U11 Boys Football vs The Elms, Winterfold and RGS The Grange

Hawford played host to an excellent afternoon of football on Wednesday. It was brilliant to be able to welcome teams from The Elms, WInterfold and RGS The Grange. The football on display was highly impressive with a number of well crafted goals being scored. The Hawford boys battled well and played some lovely passing football in spells. They demonstrated some great sportsmanship. It was a very successful afternoon and we look forward to a very busy sporting week next week.

U9 Boys Football vs Winterfold

On Tuesday afternoon we welcomed Winterfold School for two highly competitive U9 matches on the top field. We were pleased with the efforts, enthusiasm and commitment of the Hawford boys throughout both matches and the defending on show was excellent. The boys’ targets for next week’s festival at Winterfold will be to show a little more composure on the ball and improved decision making when in possession.
