Roseberry getting inspired by the Rugby World Cup
As the 2015 Rugby World Cup hit out T.V screens, Roseberry looked forward to the first of many sporting competitions. 32 of our children thoroughly enjoyed this years annual Billingham Tag Rugby Competition the Competition involved 13 other teams from primary schools around Billingham. Roseberry were fortunate enough to be able to take 3 teams (A, B and a C team)
The C team who were made up of all year children were placed in a tough group with Holy Rosary, St Paul’s A and St Joseph’s of Norton. The year 5 team bravely won their first game 4-1 against Holy Rosary but lost their remaining games.
Team B were placed in a group consisting of Prior’s Mill A, Billingham South A and Wolviston. They did fantastically well in drawing all their games and lost out at qualifying to the final by tries scored.
Roseberry A Team (picture above) were outstanding in their attitude and behaviour. The A Team oozed class and their superb team play was too much for a Prior’s Mill B, beating them 8 – 0! The A team then went on beat a strong Bewley team 6-2 and sailed through a stormy game again Oakdene Primary School 7-3. Roseberry A team made it through to a very noisy final, playing Prior’s Mill A team. Roseberry were clinical in their attacking scoring 7 tries and only conceded 3 tries. After shaking hands with a very despondent Priors Mill A Team, Roseberry celebrated in style with all 32 children coming together for the ‘Roseberry Hakka”. Well done to all children and staff they were a credit to the school.
In the first game of the Stockton Tag Rugby Finals Roseberry started strong with an impressive 7-2 win against St Patrick’s Primary of Stockton. Roseberry sailed through the next game with some ease, beating Whitehouse Primary of Stockton 5-3. In the final game of the group stages Levendale Primary took the upper-hand taking a 0-2 lead. However Roseberry courageously fought back to tie the game 2-2. With a few minutes to go Levendale proved too strong and won the game 4-2.
After winning the group Roseberry progressed through to the semi-finals, meeting Whinstone Primary of Ingleby Barwick. Roseberry took a 3-0 lead with Whinstone unable to keep up with Elle, Charlie and Sam. Unfortunately Roseberry lost concentration and allowed Whinstone back in the game 3-2, then after two mistakes Whinstone won the game in the last seconds of the game.
Finally Roseberry finished 3rd in the Stockton Tag Rugby Finals Finals after beating Prior’s Mill 3-2. Another fantastic achievement for all the children involved. Well done RPS!
Billingham and Stockton Football Finals 2015/16.
10 children from Year 6 (3 girls and 7 boys) attended this year’s Billingham Football Competition at Northfield School on Wednesday 21st October.
The first game proved very difficult and Roseberry lost 2-0 against a strong St Joseph’s team. Sophie was awarded the player of the game due to her brilliant defending. Priors Mill and Roseberry cancelled each other out in an exciting 0-0 draw in the second game. In the third game, Roseberry fought very hard and played extremely well and comfortably beat St Joseph’s B team 2-1. A smooth pass from Charlie left Riley free to hammer home a half volley to go 1-0 up. Roseberry quickly scored again with Riley crossing the ball to Ellie and Ellie finishing in style with a kneed goal. A mistake by the Goalkeeper let in St Joseph’s to score a consolation goal.
The final group game against Priors Mill B ended 1-0. Roseberry cruised through the game, creating lots of chances with Sophie and Abdullah commanding the defence whilst Declan, Ellie, Charlie and Riley stylishly leading the line. Ellie played a sweet through ball slicing open the Priors Mill defence for Charlie to take a touch and clinically finished to kill the game off.
In the Semi Final, Roseberry met Priors Mill A team. Again, Roseberry dominated the game with them taking a quick 2-0 lead. Charlie scored again chipping the goalkeeper after reacting well to a rebound. Then came the goal of the tournament! After receiving a throw from Sam, Riley used his quick feet to skill 2 players and pass to Declan. Declan looked up, picked his spot and hammered home a thunderbolt goal from 20 yards out. Priors Mill scored quickly but the game ended 3-1.
Roseberry met a very good St Joseph’s Norton team. Roseberry went 1-0 in front through a well taken goal from Ellie. St Joseph;s Norton outclassed Roseberry and coasted to a 3-1 victory. Roseberry finished 3rd overall and went on to represent Billingham schools at the Stockton Football Finals. Unfortunately, Roseberry came up against some very experienced footballers and some well drilled teams and were unable to win any of their group games, losing to Whinestone View (4-1), Ingelby Mill(5-1) and Wolviston Primary School (2-1).
Sophie said, “Sam’s saves were outstanding!”
Ellie said, “ I just think that the team wanted to do well and worked so hard for one another.”
Sam said, “It was very competitive and quite enjoyable”
Charlie said, “Our head never dropped and we kept giving a 100%!”
