Firstly, a round up of the boys’ matches…

  • The U13A’s continued their run of good form, with a home win against Belmont with the score of 8 tries to 7. The boys played some superb attacking rugby and worked hard in defence against a physical opposition with Henry putting in huge improvements with his tackling.
  • The U13B had their best performance of the season with a win against Belmont with the score 3 tries to 2. Superb all round performance from Christopher and two tries including the match winner from Ethan.
  • Pennthorpe U11 A1 & A2 squads played flowing and attacking rugby winning their first game 3 tries to 2 and then drawing their second game 3 tries to 3. William D and Will S scored their first ever tries in contact rugby and Tristan made some buccaneering runs with the ball.
  • The U11B squad had a great experience at their tag rugby festival with the team putting in good performances throughout the day.
  • The U10s won their game 14-8 against Belmont with Alexander with the performance of the game with his tackling was greatly improved following an intensive tackling session during Monday games.
  • The U9s has an amazing 13-13 draw for Pennthorpe in their match against Aldro. Special mention to Yarick for a match winning try.
  • The U8s had a very tight game with Belmont and Aldro with the team running very well with the ball especially Matt.

And for the girls….

  • The U13 girls played a superb game. The score was kept close throughout the whole game with the team superbly bringing the ball up and down the court. We ended the game winning by 1 goal – a nail biting performance!!
  • The U11As had a very close game against Lancing Prep with the game being a 6-6 draw. The girls had a great game and worked hard in defence Romilly in particular played well at GK. The girls showed great determination and teamwork.
  • The U11Bs again had a very close match with Lancing Prep with a 6-6 draw. There was great open play with wonderful passing around the whole court with some excellent shooting. There was some great tenacious centre court and defensive play by Lara.
  • The U10s played Hurst on the MUGA and, again, it was a hard fought match with the end result being a 8-8 draw, with Zara showing superb effort and commitment around the court whilst playing centre.
  • The U8/9 mixed netball team had a great afternoon of netball. All the girls worked hard on their passing and all showed really great fight, with Lucy and Elodie standing out.

Outside of school, Sam and Freddie played in a basketball match for the Horsham Hawks U11’s, at St Andrews High School in Worthing.  It was Sam’s first match and Freddie’s second.  The match was very close all the way through but the other team finished ahead in the end.  A great experience for them and lots of fun to watch. Well done boys🏀
