Autumn Term 2017 Match Reports

A Team 0-0

B Team 0-0

St Cedd’s have always been strong in their hockey play. However, the girls have been working hard and I am very proud of the performance that both teams put on. They defended well. They used the width in their play, they attacked the goal and they passed accurately. It was not an easy game and despite the score line both teams had a chance to score. Bethany and Molly both made some fantastic saves to keep a clean sheet. Choosing players of the match this week was particularly hard as all of the girls played the best hockey I have seen from them as a team.

Player of the match for the A Team- Niamh S and Sofia B

A Team- 7-4 Loss

B Team  2-0 Loss

The girls had their first Netball match of the season, with hockey being played earlier in the week, the game was a tough one. Littlegarth had some very tall players and were able to use this to their advantage. That said the girls played a lovely game of netball. The all got to play different positions as it was high 5 netball.

Player of the match for the A team was Maya S

Player of the match for the B team was Sylvie G.


4-6 Win

Dame Bradbury are new to Hockey and asked us to bring over a mixed team. With this in mind we had 2 girls teams of 4 players, one from each of the teams that we have. The girls worked well together, defending, passing, moving and scoring well. Dame Bradbury had some very good players and we were very evenly matched. The girls managed to secure their first win of the season. Keep it up girls.

Player of the match was Siena B.

The newly formed Triathlon Team travelled to Brentwood for our first ever triathlon event. It was also the ISA Nationals! Arriving early we acquainted ourselves with the course and set out our transition stages. All the cycling and running materials were laid out and the children sized up the bikes for the cycling stage.

Soon we were set to compete, moving off in 10 second intervals for the 90m swim in the indoor pool. After completing the swim the children ran to the cycle stage for an 800m sprint. After putting down the bike and helmet to finish off there was an 800m run.

All of the children performed admirably and were a great credit to the School.

Results to follow.

Drew 20 – 20

A highly competitive match was played out on Wednesday against a sporting Finborough side. Tries were scored by both teams in both halves of the games. St. Margaret’s improved steadily throughout the afternoon and moved the ball well in the second period. A little stronger in defence and some better decision making could have resulted in a narrow victory.

Credit though to both teams in an entertaining fixture.

A Team 1-0 Win

B Team 4-0 Loss

For the first game of the season the girls travelled to Chelmer park to face Widford Lodge in a Hockey Match. The girls main sport is Netball this term, however to get as many fixtures as we could, some had to be Hockey. The girls were nervous as they had not done much Hockey, however, they played with such determination you never would have known. The A team held strong, defending well and passing and moving to score the only goal in the game. The B team were not as lucky and had to work hard to get in the game. Widford Lodge proved to be strong going forward and defended well. All the girls improved as the game went on.

Player of the match for the A team was Emily H-F

Player of the match for the B team was Amelie J.

The Under 10 side captained by Jack B had their first taste of Rugby for the year. Some lacklustre tackling saw us 10-0 down early on but the Team came back well to score 2 tries of their own. A further score from Holmwood straight from the restart was disappointing and the half time score was 10-15.

Despite an improved second half performance the Team succumbed to a 10 – 35 defeat as strong running caused problems and Holmwood’s defence was tight. Despite getting close to the try line we couldn’t breach the Visitor’s defence.

Monday saw a number of Year 3-6 pupils travel to Holmwood House for an Aquathlon (swimming and running) and we are very pleased to announce that the children did exceptionally well:

There were some great performances. Strong swimming and running saw 3 of our competitors in the top 4 for the U9 Girls’ event including the winner! In the Y5 Girls’ we repeated the feat and had 3 of the top 4 finishers which included the winner. There were strong performances in the Year 4, 5 & 6 Boys with St. Margaret’s placing well.

Alice F and Maya S placed 1st and 2nd in the Year 4 girls race.

Siena B and Eva S were 1st and 3rd for the Year 5 girls.

Harry J was 3rd in Year 5 boys race.

Well done to all of you.

Drew 10 – 10

We had a great afternoon of Rugby with Colchester High School. Although the purpose was primarily to be a training environment we managed to squeeze in a ‘half’ of competitive Rugby. Credit to the Boys from both schools who worked hard, developed their match play and made great improvements during the afternoon.
