Last Tuesday was a great afternoon for the girls’ football team. This was my second game with the girls after a very convincing start where they previously beat Camp School 4-2. The girls came out very strongly with lots of possession, passing the ball around perfectly and getting everyone involved. The first breakthrough was from Emma who got the ball in some space and got to work with it, eventually putting the team 1-0 up within a few seconds of starting the game. Before we knew it, we were 6-0 up and it was not even half time! The second half started, and the girls started that half even better, scoring again within seconds of the restart. Eventually, How Wood scored against us…but that goal was actually scored by Amelia, who we had lent to them to play against us! (Thanks, Amelia!) The girls ended up winning 13-1! What an incredible performance! I was very impressed by all of them and how dedicated they were to keep on scoring. Congratulations to Emerald for POM and Emma for CP.
Last Thursday, the boys’ team played against Killigrew Primary, who had previously beaten them. This was my first game with the boys so I wanted them to show me what they could do. The boys started the game very strongly with plenty of shots and winning every tackle they faced. During the first half, Jonah started the scoring with a brilliant solo effort then closely after that Henry scored, making it 2-0. Before we knew it, the boys were 6-0 up at half time. Once the second half started up again, Killigrew kept on pushing for their first goal. SSAS dug in hard and kept their composure, eventually winning the game 9-0. The team played exceptionally well with a special mention to Darius in goal who made some unbelievable saves. Congratulations to Alex, who picked up the well-deserved CP.
On Thursday, 30 pupils visited Oaklands College to take part within a qualifiers athletics tournament to get us into the district finals. I am so impressed and proud of all the boys and girls as they all tried their best in every event that they took part in. SSAS won most of our events in the heats we were placed in, but unfortunately overall we just missed out on getting into the district finals by one place. Despite this, I could not be happier about the effort, team work and commitment shown by every single pupil who attended. Well done, everyone!
