Southmead’s Budding Rugby Players!
Last week, two teams from Years 5 and 6, competed against other schools from the Braunton Co-operative Learning Trust, in an exciting tag rugby competition held at the Tarka Tennis Centre. Throughout a series of very closely fought matches, both teams showed incredible resilience and teamwork to produce some fantastic results. Despite suffering some losses, all the children displayed school values in abundance by pulling together and managing to secure victories against some of their opponents.
In a particularly close game, for a place in the semi finals, Southmead ‘A’ battled against Kingsacre. At the final whistle, the score was 0-0, so the game had to be decided in a 4-minute game where a ‘golden try’ would win the game. Determined not to lose, the team pulled together and scored the first try to secure themselves a semi-final place against Marwood. Unfortunately, they were just beaten 3-4 to miss out on a place in the final.
All the children proved themselves to be worthy representatives of the school with Southmead ‘A’ achieving 4th place and Southmead ‘B’ 6th place!
A huge well done to all the children that took part. It was lovely to see your smiling faces afterwards and the pride that you felt!
