Sports Round up for September

U13 Rugby v Ashville College

It was an early start at Ashville College and with the sun shining Scarborough College U13's team were raring to go. 

Scarborough College dominated the game from the opening kick-off and with both strong forward play and good passing between Fred and Loui, with Guy scoring our opening try. Play was briefly stopped due to an Ashville injury and with them being a man down mighty Michael joined the opposition, for him to immediately do a try saving tackle against our team! 

The game continued with Scarborough College having the upper hand and with fast passing we continued to score a number of try's and some conversions.  Strong scrummaging from our forward pack led us to overpower the opposition winning the majority of the scrums with Hamish finding his position as scrum half and being able to pass the ball away quickly to our backs. Game continued and after a few attempts at passing the ball out wide to demon Dan he crashed over the line to score his first ever try!

Ashville College managed to score in the final minutes of the game finishing with the final score being Scarborough College 55 - Ashville College 7.

It was a great win with the forwards rucking and mauling as a unit and the backs being able to go through their fancy moves and passes.  Ashville College may have been the weaker side but everyone on our team, were committed and played some part in today's victory. Well done team.

Ist XV Rugby v Hull Collegiate

Another steady start to a match for the 1st XV losing (30 - 10) against Hull Collegiate.  Our try’s came from Bryn Andrews and a pick from the back of the scrum from Angus Bulmer giving it to Will Heaps who scored the try.  We had great play by the forwards dominating in the set pieces and strong running from Evan Cole and Charlie Watts. Our line outs are getting stronger with Max Truelove jumping and James and Angus Bulmer lifting, winning all of our lineouts and most of theirs.

James Bulmer, Captain

U9 Girls’ Hockey v St Martins Ampleforth

The Bramcote U9 girls’ hockey team showed that the future of Scarborough College hockey is in safe hands with an impressive win in their first match of the season. They played St Martin's Ampleforth on Wednesday16 September and on a blue sky, warm, late summer day produced some great hockey. Captain, Emma Guthrie, dominated the midfield and with Madeline Barker showing speed down the right wing and Kate Barker showing good scoring ability.  The team won 6-1.  Most impressive was the team's ability to pass the ball, a skill not often seen at U9 hockey.

U13 Girls Hockey

The girls on Saturday had a great win.  Kyra & Tara had a strong defence with Tori Cole in goal not letting the opposition score.  Frankie Drinkwater scored 2 of the three goals and one was scored by Rio. Issy Mudd unfortunately couldn't play, so a player from Hull Collegiate had to step in and help. Overall it was great win for the team with a 3-0 victory

Rio Corrigan, Captain 

U13 Rugby v Hymers College

Another sunny day away saw us taking on Hymers College proving to be our hardest game yet.
As the game started Hymers A team, with their strong big fast runners scored the opening try. The first half continued to be dominated by the opposition although Scarborough College dug in hard eventually being rewarded with a try and conversion.

In the second half Hymers changed their team and so we were then against their rested B team. The game became much more even and with strong running and passing from Max Teasdale and Loui Beckett, Max crashed over the try line to score his first try of the season. The game continued evenly with some strong Scarborough College forward play but with 10 minutes to go Hymers made another team change bringing back on 5 of their A team players. Hymers again proved too powerful and strong for our side and as the whistle blew the final score was Scarborough College 19, Hymers 50. 
We may have come away without a win today but hopefully we will come back from this loss a stronger team.

Report from the Director of Sport

The start of the school year has seen some great competition with all teams training and playing hard.  The U13 boys' rugby have shown real dedication and team work so far this term.  A number of our girls have recently been involved in the hockey District Knock-out competition with both the U14 and U16 teams through to the next round.  

In addition to our normal local fixtures we even had a training session and match against a visiting side from Redland School in Chile.  Although not a great day weather wise, two good fixtures of rugby and hockey for our Year 9 and 10 pupils.

The Equestrian team has been in action and doing well in two local competitions and our first ever Golf team recently headed to Edinburgh to compete in a national golf competiton.

October sees the school playing over 20 fixtures including St Peters, Barnard Castle, Ampleforth and Fylinghall plus a few tournaments and the next rounds of the knock-out competitions.   

Please come along and support your children and the teams and enjoy their success on the sports field.
