Y5/6 Girls Football - Tuesday 14th April 2023
On Tuesday our year 5 and 6 girls took part in the final stage of the Congleton Girls' football league.
Our first game was against Havannah and straight away the girls were playing well as a team. Alex and Poppy were great in defence making it hard for Havannah to score. Ava, Brooke and Emma tried their best and had many chances to score, but the ball just wouldn't go in the net and the game ended on at a 0-0 draw.
The second game was against Daven who had some strong players; Danuta and Jessica were strong in defence and a goal from Emma won us the game 1-0.
We then played Marfields and wow, what an exciting game this was! Everyone played so well and the cheering from the parents made this game magical for the girls. They wanted goals and they got lots of them with Alex, Emma and Ava all scoring - we won 5-0!
The final game was against Buglawton, a tough side and the weather really kicked in with winds, hail and sleet but the girls still played their hearts out and really battled on. We won this game 4-0 with more goals from Ava, Emma and Alex.
We are awaiting confirmation on our final league position, but the girls were fantastic throughout the whole competition and are all Champions in the eyes of Mrs Aidley and Mrs Jackson.
Saint Mary's would like to thank Vale Juniors for the sponsorship of our new football kit, we sure you will agree the kits look fantastic. The children are very excited to wear them for upcoming events.
Y3/4 Football - Tuesday 10th March 2023
On Tuesday a group of Y3/4 children represented the school in a football tournament against other local schools. There were 11 other schools taking part and we were split into two groups and placed in group A. Our first match was against Quinta. It was a tough match, with an equal amount of attacking and defending from the boys but unfortunately we lost 0-1.
Our second match was against Mossley, another strong team, but again we showed brilliant game playing; with some amazing saves by Brody and goals scored by Finley and Bobby, we won 2-1.
We played Daven next and within a few minutes we had a corner taken by Finley which resulted in a goal from Bobby. Harry P and Harry B-H also scored goals giving us another win 3-0.
The next match was against Buglawton and Bobby scored enabling us to win 1-0. We had a total of 3 wins which put us in second place in Group A. We then went on to the semi- finals, playing Marton, the winners from group B. The boys played brilliantly but after a goal from Marton in the last couple of minutes, we lost 0-1.
The final then took place between Black Firs and Marton which resulted in a draw. Quinta then placed second and we were third. We are so proud of the boys resilience and determination. They are all a credit to Saint Marys.
Y3/4 Boccia Ball Report 25th January 2023
We had a great time with our two Y3 teams at the All Hallows' Boccia tournament on Wednesday. We were against lots of older teams from Ys 4, 5 and 6 but both of our teams played well and showed great spirit, respect and teamwork.
James led his team of Alice and Solomon to third place winning a bronze medal while Bobby, Daryl and Jaxon played well but lost out on points in the final rounds.
Mrs White and Mrs Jackson were very proud of both teams.
