Lowerplace V Sandbrook

This evening the football team played against Sandbrook. The boys started very well having lots of chances early on but not making any of them count. The children became more confident at the first half went on. With Sahil and Kasim going close with a chance. Philip kept the ball moving and the two rocks (Kane and Diogo) kept them at bay. Late on in the second half Kasim went through on goal and finished low into the goal. In the second half Lowerplace started the stronger again winning the ball back quickly and attacking as a team this time. The children had chance after chance, with Sandbrook’s keeping pulling off some fantastic saves. Sahil went through 1 0n 1 with the goal keeper and secured Lowerplace’s second goal. Later on in the second half Sahil went through 1 on 1 with the keeper this time putting the ball over the second half. Sandbrook went for it in the last couple of minutes, but Lowerplace were strong enough to keep them at bay. Fantastic performance from all the boys tonight! @LPS_PE

Dodgeball RBSGP

Tonight the children took part in the Rochdale Borough School Games. Only having a few training sessions and one game before tonights event, the children didn’t know how they would do. In the first game v Sacred Heart the children cam flying out of the blocks, showing their skills in throwing, catching and dodging. They won the first game 2-1. Lowerplace saw how good St.Joseph were and knew it was going to be a tough game. Again the children went out flying winning the first game, drawing the second game and winning the third game! Lowerplace were now top of the group with one game to spare. However, being as competitive as we are and wanting to win, Lowerplace went for the win. In a game against their local rivals Broadfield, Lowerplace were tough taking no prisoners. In the first game beating Broadfield with all 6 children still on the pitch. Lowerplace went for the win in the second game something they had not done in the competition. The children secured victory in the second game against Broadfield meaning that they won with one game to spare and 5 children left on the pitch. Lowerplace will now take part in the Rochdale dodgeball finals, where we will be hoping to take victory for the second time this year! @LPS_PE
