We played in the Kingsacre football tournament. The teams in the tournament were: Southmead, Kingsacre , Caen, Goergeham and Marwood .
As the day began our hearts were filled with fear. This was because we thought the Kingsacre team were unbeatable. When we heard are names called we were even more terrified because we were playing Kingsacre in our group. Our first group game went very well as we won it 4-0 against Kingsacre! This gave us a lot of confidence and we won our second match 3-1. We won our third and final group game 3-0, which meant we qualified for the semi finals top of our group. We had a break for lunch, before the semi finals took place. In the semi final we played Caen and we won 5-0. All of our team were playing very well and we were very excited to reach the final. It was a close final and the pitch was very muddy at this point. But we won it 1-0 thanks to a goal from Olly and excellent defending from the whole team. It was great to win but we all had a really fun day!
NETBALLTwo of the Southmead netball teams participated in a tournament at Kingsacre Primary school. After arriving at Kingsacre at 9:30, we all prepared for our matches by picking bibs and organising ourselves into two different teams (team 1 and team 2).
Southmead 2nd team were the first to play from our school, going against Caen 1st team. Caen 1st sadly beat Southmead 2nd 6-1, with Lola scoring the goal for Southmead.
The second match to be played by Southmead was our 1st team. The score was 2-0 to us, with a
couple of amazing goals scored by Grace Parkin.
Our second team lost the next match, but drew their final match against Marwood 2nd team. Although our 2nd team did not win a medal, they did go home proud of what they had experienced. The first team lost their second match, but soon regained their confidence by winning their last match and landing themselves in the semi-finals. Unfortunately, we lost both of these matches, so our final position was fourth place.
We all came back to school happy and proud with what we had accomplished. Although none of us won a medal, we know that next time it’ll be different.
