Quicksticks Tournament

On Thursday 25th October our hockey squad, consisting of our A and B teams, competed in the Birchwood School Partnership Quicksticks tournament against 26 other teams. The teams were split into two competitions, with our A team competing in the Gold Cup and our B team in the Silver Plate. Throughout the whole tournament, both of our teams were a credit to their school and families, competing with great skill, determination and respect. Both teams won their first three qualifying games and progressed to the semi finals of their cups – where unfortunately they had mixed fortune. Despite playing their best hockey, the B team were narrowly defeated 0-1 and were extremely unlucky not to at least take the game to extra time, whereas the A team won their semi final and then progressed to win the Gold Cup with a hard fought 1-0 over Windhill21 in the final.

We are extremely proud of all of the children’s efforts and attitude and now look forward to our A team representing the Bishop Stortford Partnership in the county finals in July.

Triumphant Year 4s

Summercroft A and B Year 4 football teams were triumphant in the tournament at Birchwood this week, which saw them play against other local primary schools.

Summercroft A Team played 5 games, with 4 wins and 1 draw. Summercroft B Team played 4 games with 4 wins. Every player did so well and they were all very supportive of each other and showed good sportsmanship towards the other teams. Not every member of each team could play each game but not one of the children grumbled or moaned when it wasn’t their turn but instead took to the side-lines to be chief supporter – great attitudes.

At the end of the B Team Tournament each team had to select a ‘Star Player’ from another school and Joseph  was chosen by the High Wych team – well done, Joseph!

In house, Summercroft A Team chose Jessica as their ‘Star Player’ for showing great determination and an increase in confidence throughout all the games she played.

Summercroft B Team chose Isabelle as she was nervous at the start and chose to watch the first game but after that got well and truly ‘stuck in’! Joshua and Theo were noted as being particularly supportive of their team mates – well done, boys.

Thanks to Mrs Zelezinski who stepped in at the last minute to come and support us – we really appreciate your help.

Congratulations to you all – you were all a pleasure! And well done for the win!

Football and Hockey Tournaments

The first week back was jam packed with sporting events and all of the staff are extremely proud of the children who participated for their efforts and attitude.

On Wednesday morning, the Year 4 football team competed in the KAS Football Festival. Despite only having one training session together, the team performed brilliantly. They showed great talent, determination and togetherness to produce some great performances, so much so that Mr Carter is extremely excited at the prospect of having them as part of the Year 5 and 6 football team in the next couple of years.

Following the Year 4’s efforts were the Year 5 and 6 Girls football team. They also competed in a KAS Football Festival on Wednesday. Building on their prior successes as a team this year, the girls put together some excellent performances, only conceding 2 goals and losing one match in the whole tournament. If it wasn’t for the extreme heat and a sickness bug affecting our players then Mrs Dawson assures us that we would have been coming home with a trophy.

On Thursday, our Year 6 hockey squad competed in the BSP Quicksticks tournament. The squad was comprised of two teams who performed brilliantly. Both teams played with determination throughout and produced some outstanding team performances, scoring some excellent goals and making astonishingly brave last – ditch tackles. Unfortunately we didn’t bring back a trophy for our efforts, however, one of our teams were only one match off reaching the grand final.

Finally, on Friday, the A and B football teams took part in the final KAS Football Festival. Building on the excellent progress that they have made already this year, both teams gave their all to produce some excellent performances. The B Team remained unbeaten during their group stage matches despite having to face A Teams from two other schools and qualified for the Gold cup, while the A Team kept their nerve and were victorious during two penalty shootouts to win the Silver Cup. Mr Eaton and Mr Carter are extremely proud of their effort and positive attitude on Friday and during the whole year so far.

Girls football – 23rd November 2017

After previously winning their qualifying group, the Year 5 and 6 girls football team took part in the final of the county girls qualifiers against Northgate School on Thursday 23rd November. The team made an excellent start, ending the first half with a 3-1 lead after some exceptional play. During the second half, the team continued to perform with determination and confidence, however unfortunately Northgate managed to score three more goals and ended up winning the match by 4 goals to 3. Despite their defeat, our girls remained positive and showed great sportsmanship in congratulating their opposition. They truly did do themselves and the school proud.

Football Fixtures at Summercroft

A Team football report

Last time the A team played on Tuesday 14th November we hosted Little Hallingbury. We unfortunately lost to Little Hallingbury 7-1. Mason scored the only goal for Summercroft. Now we’re at the bottom of the gold league but the squad’s trying harder every week and we hope for a good result soon.

B Team football Report

On Tuesday 14th November, the B team hosted Little Hallingbury and won 9-0. This great victory, which put them middle of the table, is good going with only 3 matches left. We dominated the game with goals from Sev, Alfie, Oscar and Evan.   Justin was very bored in goal with only two shots at him during the whole game!

We are looking forward to the next match in January against Puller at home.

Girls football report

The girls’ football team played in a tournament against four other schools. We did very well in every game: on the first match we won 2-0, the second match we drew 1-1 and the third match we won 2-0. As a result, we managed to get into the final against Northgate.

Unfortunately, it became too dark half way through our last match so they had to call it off. We will replay our match and if we win, we will represent Bishop’s Stortford in a bigger tournament. Everyone in the team played brilliantly. Well done girls!

Cheerleading

The Summercroft Cheerleading Squad took part in a competition on Friday 13th October. We are please to report they brought home the trophy! Competing against five other primary schools, the cheerleaders were scored based on their personal performance and on how well they cheered on the other schools. On both accounts, Summercroft stole the show. Congratulations girls!
