Girls U9 County Cup
The Year 4 girls team were involved in the County Cup on Wednesday 11th December. The girls were in a group with Redhill, Mereside and Greenfields. Redhill were up first, the girls played well and were unlucky to go 1-0 down. HJS were determined to score and did through Evie, smashing the ball into the net. The game ended 1-1. In the second game against Mereside HJS played well but again it was the opposition who scored first. But, after that HJS were on top having a few chances before Evie scored to make it 1-1. In the final game against Greenfields, HJS started brilliantly and were rewarded with a goal. Abbey scored after she ran with the ball from the halfway line! Unfortunately, Greenfields managed to score late on to make the score 1-1 so this wasn’t quite enough to see them through to the next round.
Well done girls!! You were great, scored 3 great goals and didn’t lose a match.
Special mention to Abbey, Lyla, and Aleesha who all took turns in goal.

HJS had other chances to score but the game ended with a 1-0 win for HJS. In the second game against Redhill the boys again played well. They created a few chances through Mason, Ethan and Harry but were unable to score so the game finished 0-0. In the final game against Mount Pleasant HJS knew they need a win or draw to see them through to the next round. They started really well and had lots of chances, Mason hitting the post twice in quick succession. Then Ethan had a great chance hitting the post himself from close range. HJS continued to have most of the play until Mount Pleasant had a free kick which was tipped on to the bar superbly by Harry. The game ended 0-0 which was enough to put HJS through to the next round.

High 5 Netball
On Wednesday a team from the netball club played in a High 5 tournament at Shrewsbury High School.
A total of 12 schools took part and after playing 5 games, of which they won 3, drew 1 and lost 1, they came second in their group. This enabled them to play in the semi-final for the cup competition. Unfortunately they lost this game and came 4th overall, which was an amazing achievement as they have only been playing together for 5 weeks. They all played extremely well and enjoyed the experience. We hope they can now take this skill and use it when the league starts in November.
Well done to all and also thank you for making the afternoon so enjoyable.
Mrs Jones and Mrs Edwardes.
Team: Livvy, Grace, Roxie, Sam, Darcie, Ruby and Tulip
