Year’s 7 and 8 Rugby 7’s Tournament

Written by Anna Day on . Posted in Creative Arts And PE, Parent News, School News

The Year 8 boys Rugby A team started strong against Tendring School with good runs from captain Harvey. Tendring won the game 30-0 although the score didn’t reflect the match. They then played CCHS School and lost 10-5, their try was scored by Captain Harvey with some excellent passing and great teamwork. Harwich came close to scoring a try at the end of the match but the ball was dropped over the line. They then played their rivals Harwich B, the match was very close with both teams attacking and defending well. The score ended up 10-10, both tries were scored by Harvey. Our overall man of the tournament was Will for his excellent overall play, Captain Harvey was second man of the match for some great tries and third man of the match went to Jacob who played very well for his first every Rugby match. The B team lead by Captain Billy Potter were able to beat Clacton County High by two tries, from Mitch Smith and Jack Jones, they were unable to beat TTC who had a very strong side. They had a loss to Clacton Costal Academy by 1 try. Man of the Match for Harwich B’s went to Jack Jones.

The Year 7 Rugby team played their first Rugby 7’s tournament. The team got split into two. The B team was made up of people who had little experience of Rugby and was captained by Joe Henderson. They played a number of games and some really tough teams. The progress of their performances was huge and they managed to secure a draw against Clacton County High School. Tom Newland and Jenson Adams put in particularly impressive shifts getting all over the park. The B team finished 5th overall.

The A team had different fortunes. They won the tournament going unbeaten and without conceding a try. This was a whole team performance with special mention going to Ioan Woodward, Alex Ashworth, Harry Pitham and Regan Constable for scoring in the majority of the games. Lucas Lowe and Harrison Hunt were superb preventing the other team from scoring with Harvey Bennett providing an ever present threat on the wing. This was a fantastic result and credit goes to all the boys who played today and helped to bring home the trophy. We now look forward to getting everyone back together for our away fixture today in Ipswich.

Harwich Year 9 boys travelled to Clacton County High School for their second match of the year. An amazing effort from all players in the team with a very close score line throughout the match. Every player managed to get their name on the score sheet: Jack Sheverall x 1, Reme Eagle x 1, Siv Sivakumar x 2, Charlie Guizelar x 7, Cody Double x 8 and an amazing three pointer from Keenan Brown. Unfortunately the score line at the end of the match didn’t reflect their efforts. Final score 42 – 64.

Harwich 3 – Stanway 1

Written by Anna Day on . Posted in Creative Arts And PE, Parent News, School News

Monday saw the return of the FA Schools National Cup to Harwich and Dovercourt High School with the visit of Stanway to play our Year 9 team.

The first ten minutes saw a dominant display from our boys only for Stanway to carve out the best chance of the game with Quinn Bird saving exceptionally from a one on one with the Stanway Striker.

Harwich continued to knock at the door of the Stanway goal with Adam Strange, Max Macdonald, Keenan Brown and Greg Rodger all going close. Towards the end of the half the Stanway keeper made a superb save from a 25 yard pile driver from Charlie Guiezlar but was finally beaten when another excellently delivered corner from Brown saw Rodger head powerfully home from inside the six yard box.

The second half began with a better start for Stanway and after five minutes they grabbed a scrappy equaliser against the run of play. The whole Harwich team kept their head and continued to work hard and play good, passing football which led to them regaining the lead with about 15 minutes to go. The ball was crossed in following some more probing wing play by Oli Wright with Macdonald on hand to stab the ball home from close range. Chances continued to come for Harwich, Quinn saved well from another Stanway counter attack and then Wright put the tie beyond doubt when he hit the top corner at the far post following a great cross from Guiezlar.

The whole team were outstanding but bonus sports personality points go to man of the match Greg Rodger for his tireless, end to end Captains performance. Three points to Yuki Jackson for his disciplined role in the CDM role and three to Josh Herbert for the way he kept quiet the Stanway number 11 who offered their greatest threat. Two points awarded to Olly Wright for his excellent impact off the bench.

The game was played in excellent sprit and Harwich were worthy winners – progressing to round two and another Home tie v Claydon High from Ipswich.

Year 7 Football Report

Written by Anna Day on . Posted in Creative Arts And PE, Parent News, School News

The Year 7 boys had their first game of secondary school football against Stanway school in the English Schools FA cup. The boys started the game strongly and were unlucky not to take the lead. Stanway had a good 5 minute spell where they scored two goals. If it wasn’t for heroic goalkeeping from Matt Morgan and excellent defending from man of the match Kyle Elder the score could have been more. The second half the boys rallied with attempts from Harvey Bennett, Tom Newland and Charlie Wotten narrowly missing. Stanway again came strong and scored 3 more goals. Good effort from all of the players and we look forward to the coming league season.
