Sports Updates 2019-20
Year 7 Football
The Year 7 football team made a strong start to the season with a 7-0 victory over local rivals North Kesteven playing some excellent football. Unfortunately, the second game did not go our way, despite many positives, the game against Branston Community Academy ended with a 5-3 defeat.
Year 7 5-a-side football tournament
The Year 7 5-a-sdie tournament started extremely well with two comfortable victories for SRPA before a draw in the third game. A narrow defeat followed setting up a game against leaders Branston in the final game. SRPA had to push forward to secure victory and were unfortunately caught on the break losing their second game. Final position 3rd with some great football played. Well played boys.
Year 8 Football
The Year 8s have had two very conflicting games. The first a comfortable 9-0 victory over The Gainsborough Academy followed by a 3-0 defeat against Queen Elizabeth High School.
Year 9 Football
It has been a difficult start to the season for the Year 9 football team. It started with a 4-0 defeat to a strong North Kesteven Academy side but despite the score line there were many positives and the game was extremely close until the final 5 minutes. This was followed by a 6-2 victory against The Gainsborough Academy with goals from Thomas N x3, Ritchie, Leo and Tyler. Injuries and absences left the team short for the visit of Branston with top scorer Tom having to put on the gloves and play in goal. The ten men of SRPA held firm until just before half time when the opposition managed to break through. Ritchie immediately replied burst through the opposition defence to draw the scores level at the break. The score remained 1-1 for a large part of the second half. The opposition pressure finally telling on a resolute SRPA defence and scoring 3 late goals. The 4th game again saw a number of changes to the team and on this occasion we were unable to match the opposition losing 4-0. Hopefully the second half of the season will bring about a change in fortune.
Year 10 Football
The Year 10s have only played one game so far following a cancellation. This was a narrow 2-1 defeat against Queen Elisabeth High School away in Gainsborough with Ethan netting for SRPA. Joseph D was moved into midfield part way through the match and made an excellent contribution. M.O.M. was Jobey E in goal making a string of brilliant saves and showing great resilience. More fixtures and victories will hopefully follow in the second half of the season.
Year 11 Football
Another difficult start to the season has seen the Year 11s lose narrowly in both of their games so far. 3-1 4-2 versus Branston and versus William Farr. The boys showed real promise in their first two games of the season. Despite being overcome by strong opponents in both fixtures they played some fantastic football and dominated periods of both games. As always, the boys conducted themselves superbly when they could have quite easily lost their focus. Well done boys, a really strong start to the season despite the results!
Year 7 Netball
The Year 7 netball team have eventually made a start to their fixtures for the year. Starting with a match against Priory LSST the girls used this match to confirm their playing positions and roles within the team and great developments within game play was seen over the duration of the match. Unfortunately the opposition was too strong and we were defeated 17-3. The second game for the girls was against Lincoln Christs Hospital School, the girls were up against a very strong and physically tall side and again despite lots of positive play it did not go our way ending in a 16-5 defeat.
Year 8 Netball
The year 8 netball team played their second game of the year against Lincoln Christs Hospital School last week; the girls played a fantastic game with the two teams being neck and neck in the scores up until the end of the 3rd quarter. Unfortunately in the final quarter fatigue was a factor and LCHS drew away from us ending in a 13-7 defeat for us.
Year 10 &11 Netball
The year 10 & 11 team are new team this year with some great new additions. I am so proud that some of the girls are extending their Netball knowledge and being involved in netball outside of school as well as in school. The girls are developing as a team and working on their key skills. We have had three fixtures so far this term and progressing in each one as a team. I look forward to the continued season after Christmas.
