Hex 5 vs Whickham 2

Hex 6 vs Whitrigg 0

Another round of victories leaves the boys in a fantastic position ahead of the play-offs after Christmas! Well done to all of the boys again!

Year 7 Boys Rugby League: Champions Cup

The boys were in Champions Cup action today with the aim of qualifying for the regional final. To do that they had to beat John Spence, Seaton Sluice and Whitrigg.

Up first were Whitrigg and thanks to tries from Charlie C (x2) and Will HA HMS ran out 3–1 winners. The moment of the match came when Adam W chased the length of the pitch to deny an equalizing try! Sensational stuff!

Up next were John Spence: a Will HA try put HMS 1–0 up and they then had to defend 28 consecutive tackles to see out the game! Moment of the match came when a diving Lucas N brought down the biggest player on the pitch!

Finally HMS played against Seaton Sluice. A length of the field effort from Harry W was doubled by a Will HA effort shortly after. Player of the tournament Charlie C sealed the game late on making it 3–1 to HMS! 

The boys are now through to the North East finals day where they need to beat a team from Sunderland at Kingston Park in order to represent the North East in the National Finals!

A huge well done to all of the boys!

Year 7 Boys Rugby League: Sky Try League

Final fixtures of the term were the Year 7 boys rugby league team. They were playing in the Sky Try league in the second of three tournaments. The boys entered the day joint top and hoped to push on from the performance at the Champions Cup.

The results were as follows:

Hex 3 vs Whickham 0
Tries: Charlie C (2), Will HA

Hex 3 vs Belmont 0
Tries: Orin G, Joe E, Dan T

Hex 3 vs Whytrig 0
Tries: Charlie C, Dan T, Will HA

3 huge wins for the boys and they did not concede a try! Fantastic stuff again! We will look to push on in the new year!

The boys have been a credit to the school and regardless of what has happened in a game they have shook hands with every player and referee they have came up against!
