Girls’ Rugby

A fantastic win for the girls at HMS, the team included: Charlee R, Tilly P, Molly G, Jessica G, Sadie C, Hayley H, Eliza N, Millie C and Jen T. There were three other schools at the tournament: Corbridge Middle, Highfield Middle and Hexham Middle. Higfield and Corbridge had two teams entered so there were five teams in total. Hexham Middle played three matches and were victorious in all three games. We played well and cooperated so that everyone scored at least one try. We enjoyed the tournament and hope to play in a tournament at the beach at Tynemouth next game.

Boys’ Football

U11 boys’ footballers played matches on Thursday 16 March. The fixtures were held at Hexham Middle and involved Corbridge and Ovingham schools. The pitches were wet and heavy but Hexham battled well and recorded strong performances. Ovingham are the strongest team at this year group but the score lines do not really reflect the quality of the Hexham performances. Ovingham were more clinical than HMS we squandered the few chances that we created. Hexham A drew with Corbridge Middle (1 - 1) and lost to Ovingham (6 - 0). Hexham B also drew with Corbridge (2 - 2) and lost to Ovingham (3 - 0).
