Today was the annual Catholic Schools’ Sports Festival, held at St. Benedict’s Academy. St. Joseph’s were represented by a football team who had just won their league and a netball team who were high in confidence after winning their first games recently.
The netball team won a more than respectable 3 out of 5 games, with Gloreena and Poppy scoring a hatful of goals between them.
Unfortunately the footballers didn’t fare as well, despite excellent defending from Joe D, Dylan P, Nelwin and Joe W. Conor and Dylan F were left frustrated by fantastic saves at the other end of the pitch, as well as some dodgy refereeing from a former pupil! The boys ended without a victory despite their best efforts.
As ever, the children competed in the right spirit and tried their best in all the games in which they played. Who could ask for more?
Thank you to St. Benedict’s for hosting and to all the parents who came to help with transport.
