Year 4 and 5 Futsal Tournament
Curledge Street Boys' and Girls' entered this years National Futsal competition at the Torbay stage. Both boys' and girls' qualified for the regional finals by finishing in the top 4. The boys' beat St. Margaret Clitherow, Sacred Heart and drew with Shiphay in Barton. Unfortunately they lost in the semi-finals on penalties to Shiphay. The girls beat Shiphay, Sacred Heart and Galmpton, but unfortunately didn't qualify for the final on goal difference.
At the regional finals, both teams were weakened through injury and other school events. The boys' battled bravely and narrowly lost to Rydon, Bradley Barton and Exminster. However, in the girls', Curledge Street won their group by beating Sacred Heart (1-0), Bradley Barton (7-0) and drawing with Highweek (2-2). Chloe Pope scored most of the goals with Beth Meakin-Johnston and Leah Hackman adding to the scoresheet. In defence, Bryony Vass was very solid, whilst Elize Fowler, playing her first ever game of football, made many fantastic saves! In the semi-final, Curledge Street played Barton who took the lead, however, Chloe equalised to take the game to penalties! In the shoot-out Bryony, Beth and Chloe scored and Elize made a great save to put Curledge through to the final. In the final, despite taking the lead through Chloe Pope against Exminster, the Exeter based team went on to win 5-1. Curledge Street finished with silver medals for their efforts!
Well done to both teams!!!
Recently, children from Years 4 – 6 have taken part in tag rugby competitions held at Paignton Community and Sports Academy.
During the Year 5/6 tournament, many of the games were played in the driving rain, making it difficult for all teams. We did very well throughout, winning 5 out of 6 games and ensuring a second place finish. There were some magnificent solo tries scored by the likes of Ben Hackman and Ryan McCaskill. Twelve of the fourteen students who took part for Curledge Street scored at least one try. Well done to everyone who took part and persevered through some horrendous weather.
The Year 4 children also did the school proud when they took part in the same tournament 2 weeks later, working collaboratively to finish in fourth place. All that took part had a great time and special mention should go to Kaimen Treavartha, who put in magnificent performances in all 6 games.
Year 1 children will also be taking part in a tag rugby tournament next week; Good Luck to all involved.
