Our second game was against Barlborough U10 team which we won 3-1 and our final match was against Mylnhurst which we won 5-0.
All of the girls played brilliantly and they showed excellent sportsmanship.
A brilliant afternoon of hockey.

U13 rugby win v Worksop

The U13s won a tremendous game of rugby against competitive opposition from North Nottinghamshire. First half spoils were shared at 20 points each but at 30:20 to Westbourne just into the second half it looked like a certain win. Worksop fought their way back into the game to level the scores but eventually territorial dominance and a relentless push from the forwards brought our 45:30 win. Tries from Farquhar, Ahmed, Jokhi, Peckett and Heath as well as fine performances by Hartog, Foster-Major and Baker proved our competitiveness in this age group no matter the size of school we play.
Well played boys.

U11B Hockey 4:1 victory v Mylnhurst 17th October

What a great victory for the U11B team against Mylnhurst School. We had a steady first quarter and the score after 8 minutes was 0-0. We had a team talk to decide our game plan for the next quarter, reulting in a change of pace. Grace Jones played excellently in midfield to become Westbourne’s first goal scorer of the match. Mylnhurst began to apply pressure onto our defence and they equalised just before the half time whistle. In the final two quarters, the Westbourne girls were persistent and used their pace to score 3 more goals. Our final goal was special when Aurora Mountain deflected the ball into the corner of the goal following a diagonal pass from the halfway line by Holly Simmons. The girls had a fantastic afternoon and deserved the victory.

U9A Hockey Champions

What a fantastic result for the U9A girls this afternoon! We are champions of the S. Anselms Hockey Festival 2018! We began the afternoon with a positive but tactical team talk and our aim for the afternoon was to return to school with a medal (1st-3rd place out of 6 teams). The girls were focused throughout all our games and were committed to win the ball back when we lost possession. The girls teamwork and supportiveness with one another was wonderful to see. We played 5 matches during the afternoon and we won and scored in all 5! Mirabelle Ridley and Holly Bashforth were so strong at the back in defence. We didn’t concede a goal all afternoon! The girls were over the moon with their performance and I was so proud of them! Well done girls! Thank you to all the parents for their fantastic support too.

U15 Rugby win v Lincoln Minster

The U15 Rugby team beat Lincoln Minster 35-14 with a confident and well organised display.
Westbourne started strongly, going ahead 14-0 with some forceful rugby, excellent support in attack and no-nonsense tackling. Tries from Harrison Cundy and Laken Torres put them in the ascendency. Tom Bennett added an excellent team try early in the second half before Lincoln Minster rallied with 2 tries of their own as Westbourne seemed to ease off somewhat. At 21-14 Westbourne kicked up a gear with super tackling led by captain Charles Braodhurst allowing Westbourne to gain the upper hand once again and score 2 further tries from a rampant man of the match Harrison Cundy.
Well done to the team for an excellent team performance.

Impressive Rugby win v Lincoln Minster

U12s v Lincoln 65:15
U13s v Lincoln 20:5

The U12s and U13s rugby continued to play in impressive fashion when they travelled over to Lincoln Minster on October 3rd for rugby fixtures. The year sevens dominated their U12s fixture running in 13 tries. Mills-Deb put in an impressive shift but tries arrived from all over the pitch.
The U13s had a closer encounter and led narrowly 10:5 at half time. A defensive shut out in the second half and improvements in the way in which we closed down space gave us momentum to secure a 20:5 victory. Sam Johki was outstanding and played intelligently and forcefully.

U11 Hockey v Barlborough Hall

On Wednesday 3rd October our U11A team played Barlborough Hall. The game was a very close game from the start and we were playing extremely well. The majority of play was in our attacking end and we continued to put the pressure on their defence. At half time the score was 0-0. Early on in the second half Barlborough scored a goal making it 1-0 to them. We fought even harder and were so determined to get a goal back. Maddie scored shortly after making it 1-1.
With 5 minutes to go Barlborough got another goal. We didn’t give up, we just fought harder. The girls worked extremely hard and with a minute to go scored. Unfortunately, it was just outside the circle so it didn’t count. The whistle went and we had just missed out on equalising. I was so proud of the girls performance and thought they really did play their best hockey. Evie Cole and Lily Radley played incredibly well throughout the game, despite Evie getting an injury just before halftime.

U9A hockey win v St Peter and St Paul. Draw v S Anselms

Westbourne 4 -1 SPSP
Westbourne 2 - 2 S Anselms

On Tuesday 2nd October our U9A hockey team had a fantastic afternoon playing 2 matches! We started off by playing SPSP and the girls were communicating well with each other, making accurate passes which led to a 4-1 victory! Our next game took place against S Anselms. The girls were slightly fatigued from already playing 30 minutes of hockey but they continued to get stuck in and were rewarded with a draw.
Ava Lowrie was the player of the day as she had a great game playing as our centre forward. She was accurate in the ‘D’ and scored 3 goals throughout the afternoon! Well done team - a great team effort!

Great commitment and effort at Cross Country meet

On Saturday 29th September the Primary Cross Country run was held at Parkwood Springs. It was a fantastic morning with excellent conditions for the busy event. We had two pupils taking part today from Year 6, Lily Radley and Maddison Hague. Lily placed 30th in the last weeks race and was determined to try and place 29th this week.
Despite Maddison Hague not feeling 100% on the day, she turned up showing commitment and dedication to running the cross country event. The girls were nervous but looked focused on the starting line and proceeded to run well throughout the long route and challenging terrain.
Lily displayed sheer determination and drive in the last few metres of the race to ensure no one else over took her on the last stretch.
Lily Radley placed 26th significantly beating her last weeks result which was wonderful. Maddison Hague placed 42nd.
Both girls made a note of these positions in order to beat these individual targets next time on this course.
Well done to both the girls.

U12 rugby win trophy in first week of play!

It was a delight to see the U12s play up at Tigers on the evening of Tuesday 25th September. They racked up nearly 20 tries against Tapton, King Edwards and Meadowhead without conceding any.
The whole squad got a run out with an impressive number of tries from Ahmed and Hughes who showed that there are a number of ways to cross the line to score! Hartog tackled persistently, Davies and Hawley were willing support runners. A great start!
Then, on the afternoon of Wednesday 26th the U12s travelled over to Spinkhill to play Mount St Mary's. A last minute try gave us victory with Joe Davies scoring in the corner to overturn a first half deficit. In the second game against a second Mount XII we ran in a number of tries and secured the inaugural U12s Techman trophy.
So in our first week of competitive matches it's played 5, won 5. Scored over 100 points, conceded 5 points, won a trophy! Mr Davey

U9 Hockey at Barlborough Hall

On Tuesday 26th September the U9A girls attended their first hockey tournament of the season at Barlborough Hall School. We had to slightly alter our tactics for each game as we were playing on grass rather than astro. The girls were determined to hit the ball hard and track back when we lost possession. Mirabelle Ridley had an outstanding game in defence and her hitting skills were excellent. She was able to send the ball up front to Sophie Hall who dribbled and passed the ball to her team mates. I was very impressed with all 10 girls this afternoon and we are looking forward to our next match! scores: Westbourne 0 - Barlborough 1 Westbourne 3 - Mylnhurst 0 Westbourne 2 - Hymers 0 Westbourne 1 - St Hugh’s 0

U16 girls through to round 2 of Sheffield Federation for School Sports' Hockey Tournament

On Tuesday 25th September the U16 girls took part in the U16 SFSS Hockey tournament at Abbeydale Sports Ground. The tournament took place at Abbeydale, with opponents being Silverdale, Tapton and Birkdale. The Westbourne girls made a respectable start in their first game against a strong Birkdale boys team, who maintained most of the ball possession resulting in a 2 - 1 win to Birkdale. The second game against Silverdale saw more attempts on goal and a short corner from Westbourne. The end result was 1-0 to Westbourne. The final game was against Tapton. The girls were determined to win the game which was clear from the increased number of shots at goal but none were successful. The end result was 1-0 to Tapton. Trixie Morrison-Parry and Niamh Fitzgerald scored the goals within the tournament. The target for the U16 team is to be more proactive in defence with clearing the ball out of the “D” and to less quiet on the pitch. Westbourne came 2nd overall which means we will be taking part in the next round of the SFSS at Hill House. Players of the match were Hannah Richards, Josephine Paul and Lulu Morrison-Parry.

Heath Davenport who was voted 'boy of the match' used his speed and agility to get 5 tries. Hao Hao who captained the side, got 3 tries and led the team to victory with enthusiasm and determination. Well done to all the boys.

U14 SFSS Hockey Tournament 19th September

Our U14 girls took part in the SFFS tournament. We played 4 teams; King Edwards, Silverdale, Tapton and Birkdale. Birkdale entered a boys team and Tapton also had boys in their team. This meant that they couldn’t go through to the next round, so it was between us King Edwards and Silverdale to secure the two places in the next round. The overall winners of the tournament were Tapton, followed by Birkdale in second place and us in third place. However, as neither Birkdale or Tapton could go through (as they had boys in their teams) Westbourne went through to the second round as winners. An amazing performance from the girls, well done.

U16 Rugby v Worksop College

On the 21st September, the U16 side (including several Year 10 players) took on a very strong Worksop College B team (away). Although they were beaten 25-0 they battled to the last whistle and were a credit to Westbourne school with regards their attitude and effort throughout the match. They tackled well for the majority of the match but let themselves down with handling errors (admittedly in very difficult conditions), especially when nearing the opposition try-line. Man if the match was Henry Corran for his fabulous tackling and running with the ball, always willing to ‘take a hit’ for his team.

Westbourne U11 Hockey win V Beech Hall

U11 Hockey vs Beech Hall On Wednesday 19th September the U11 hockey team played against Beech Hall. We started the game strong and kept possession early on. We kept putting pressure on their defence and after the first 5 minutes we scored our first goal. The first half ended as 2-0 to us. The girls were playing well, but had a few things to work on in the second half. We came out even stronger for the second half with a clear determination to win. Maddie Hague played particularly well and as well as giving a great performance in defense, stepped up to play in midfield and helped the formation of a couple more goals. We won the game 6-0 and the player of the match went to Maddie Hague. A great result, well done girls.

U11 Hockey Festival at Worksop College

Wednesday 12th September U11 Hockey Festival @ Worksop college The U11 team travelled to Worksop for their first competitive match of the season. For some of the girls it was their first ever hockey match so it was a very exciting afternoon. We played 5 games in total. Our first game was against Barlborough A team. It was a tough start and Barlborough put up a good fight. They scored 2 goals in the 10 minute game but we kept fighting and didn’t give up. Our second game was against Ranby A team who were a very strong side. This was a great opportunity for us to practice our defending and despite us putting up a good defence, Ranby A team won the game. By our 3rd and 4th games we had become much more confident and drew against Barlborough B team and St Hughes. Our final game was against Ranby B team. We found a new level of determination in this game and came out fighting. We scored fairly early on and maintained possession throughout. It was a great game and I was very proud of the girls performance. Players of the day went to Maddie Hague, Evie Cole and Anabelle Lomas.
