The inaugural inter-house 5-a-side football competition went down a storm on the Ardor site with upwards of 40 spectators most days. Strict 5-a-side rules were adhered to with the head height rule applied which meant that skilful play was at a premium.
St John’s House under the tutelage of Miss Brooks stormed to an early lead in the table, with a record attendance of 53 watching them beat
St Matthew’s House 3-2 to earn their third successive victory. However
St Luke’s House produced perhaps the performance of the tournament, having been beaten by St Matthew’s House 8-2 the day before which left some pundits speculating as to whether they’d even show-up to face the might of St John’s House, show up they did with a magnificent 3-2 victory. This meant St Mark’s House had a chance of tying St John’s House at the top of the table and in a hard fought game they
overcame St Paul’s House 6-5 which left St Mark’s and St John’s Houses joint top of the table with goal difference yet to be calculated. Jacob Slator won the golden trainer award having scored 8 goals in 4 games including two hat tricks. Kayla Williams deserves a special mention being the only girl who took part in the competition.
If anyone would like to sponsor a trophy for this and future games competitions then please contact Mr T Greenbank.
At the time of going to press it is undecided as to how the league will progress with suggestions being made that we should have a Super-League style 5 House play-off to decide the true Champions……..
Intra and Inter-House Competitions
This half-term we aim to follow on from the success of the 5-a-side football tournament and have a netball tournament running on Tuesdays after PPE’s have finished, with a basketball tournament being planned for after Christmas. Also on a Monday (boys) and a Wednesday (girls) we will be running intra-house table tennis tournaments as we want to find out who is the best table tennis player in each house.
