A huge thank you to all the schools who attended the Basketball event last week at TMA. It was amazing to see 80 students all participating. They were all fantastic & played with excellent sportsmanship and enthusiasm.

The schools were separated in to two pools & the results of the pool games are below.

Pool 1 

Girls

St Francis - 3 points

East Ardsley - 6 points

Birchfield - 9 points

Asquith - 6 points

Pool 2

Girls

Hill Top - 8 points

Seven Hills - 5 points

Westerton - 8 points

Gildersome - 3 points 

Therefore with Westerton & Hill Top on the same points the number of baskets scored were calculated which meant Hill Top went through to the finals against Birchfield. The final game was close with Hill Top being crowned champions scoring 4 - 1. A huge well done.

Pool 1 

Boys 

St Francis - 3 points

East Ardsley - 7 points

Birchfield - 9 points

Asquith - 5 points

Pool 2

Boys

Hill Top - 7 points

Seven Hills - 7 points

Westerton - 7 points

Gildersome - 3 points

Pool 2 showed that 3 schools all finished on the same number of points so the number of baskets overall each school scored was how they could be separated. This meant that Westerton went through to the finals against Birchfield. The game was another fantastic final with Birchfield being crowned champions with a 4 v 2 win.

Thank you again for attending - 8 teams was fantastic!!

MSSA - U11 Girls Football Competition 2018

DATE: 6th Nov 2018

VENUE: Woodkirk Academy

SCHOOLS ENTERED: Asquith, Birchfield, Blackgates, Churwell, Drighlington, East Ardsley, Fountain, Morley Newland, Seven Hills, St Francis, Morley Victoria, Westerton Primary

Report from East Ardsley - PE SL

On Tuesday, 6th November, it was the girls turn to represent the school at football, in the annual U11s Girls’ Football Tournament which was held at Woodkirk Academy. Eight schools took part in games 7 minutes long. 

The first game against Gildersome was completely dominated by our girls and they were unlucky to only finish with a 1-0 win ( a fabulous goal from East Ardsley Player- I), it could easily have been 5 or 6. 

During the course of the next six games, the girls played brilliantly with superb teamwork and determination, they also became more confident as the games went on.  

Not all the games went in our favour and we ended the tournament having won two, drew two and lost three. A special mention to Paige for her absolutely superb left footed goal, after taking on the keeper one-on-one. 

Well done to all the girls, you all had lots of fun and were great competitors for the other schools. Thank you to East Ardsley Players L and F for playing in a tournament with girls a lot older than themselves, you did yourselves proud.

U11

Julie Fletcher - East Ardsley

I am so VERY proud to tell you all about MSSA U11- Autumn Football Tournament, which took place at Bruntcliffe Academy.

My brilliant football team were absolutely superb and proved it by winning the competition in excellent style! 

The annual tournament is always attended well and this year twelve schools took part. They were split into three groupings, playing games nine minutes long. 

Within the first minute of our first game against Hill Top, East Ardsley Player -J smashed a free kick into the goal from 10 yards out. Another great run down the right wing from East Ardsley Player- J a few minutes later, was crossed to East Ardsley Player- J who scored. 2-0 win and three points.

Our second game against Churwell was just out of this world and the best I have seen my team play. Within the first 30 seconds, East Ardsley Player- L ran down the left wing, knocking it past their keeper. During the nine minutes of the game, all the boys were just brilliant. It wasn’t an easy game as Churwell were strong opponents, but the boys played their socks off, even when they pulled one back.  

Literally 10 seconds before the final whistle, East Ardsley Player- L scored one of the most amazing goals I’ve ever seen; from just past the half way line, he took advantage of their keeper being out of his goal and he belted it into their net. It was absolutely awesome!! We were so happy with a 2-1 win.

Our third game was against Driglington. Another tricky match but the boys definitely had the advantage and managed a 0-0 draw. 

After coming first in our grouping we were then through to play Morley Victoria in the semi finals, playing 5 minutes each way as the wind had become quite strong. After ten minutes, with a 0-0 draw, it had to be penalties to decide who went through to the final. 

East Ardsley Player- L went first and scored, MV’s player missed their goal which gave us advantage. East Ardsley Player- H , A and M then powered their goals in, with MV matching us. Victoria’s fourth penalty was brilliantly saved by East Ardsley Player- H and we were through to the final against our local rivals - Westerton. 

The boys were so thrilled to be in the final and got stuck in straight away. With shots on both end of the pitch, the match could have gone either way. Luckily for us, a cracking goal from East Ardsley Player- H was the winner, and we were crowned champions! 

Myself and the boys were absolutely ecstatic! I am so pleased for them, they truly deserve it. 

A MASSIVE well done to all the boys:

Thank you to all the schools that took part in the MSSA Cross Country event yesterday afternoon. It was a great event and the children did extremely well in the conditions. It was very muddy so there were a couple of falls and lost shoes but all the children still crossed the line smiling. There were some fantastic individual runners too. They should join a running club if they don't go to one already! 

Huge thank you to James Wynne at Woodkirk. We had to change the venue at very short notice so thank you to James for arranging for us to use the facilities at Woodkirk. 

I have attached the results for the event with this email. Well done to Churwell who were the overall team winners on the day.
