St. Stephen's Sports
It’s been a busy week for St. Stephen’s this week on the sporting front!
On Wednesday 27th March 2019, our Year 4 and 5 boys travelled to Sutton to play in the Surrey Cup semi-final against Westbourne Primary School.
It was a brilliant game to watch which showcased the strength of our team. However, it had to go into extra time to decide the winner! During this time our boys managed to score twice to seal the victory! Match Report below:
"We started the match very well, having lots of the ball and lots of shots on goal. The game ended up 0-0 and went into extra time. Mr Downes couldn't believe how we hadn't scored, had it been a boxing match the ref would have stopped it! Finally, we broke the deadlock with a great goal by Zac. We then produced the move of the game, that every player on our team was involved in - finished off by Zac. We won 2-0 and now we will play in the Final of the Surrey Cup after Easter."
We’ll now eagerly await our opportunity to play in the final which will be taking place after the Easter holidays! Well done boys - we’re all incredibly proud of your hard work and effort in the tournament!
The following day, on Thursday 28th March 2019, our Year 5 and 6 Hockey team attended the London Youth Games in Redbridge to represent the Richmond Borough in Hockey.
The sun was shining bright and the children were extremely excited! Read on for the Tournament Round Up:
"On Thursday, the hockey team represented Richmond in the London Youth Games. In the morning we played 3 games. We lost 2 of them by only 1 point. We then won our final game in the morning against Hackney, where we won 6-2. Sadly, we did not get through to the next stages of the competition. However, we played some friendlies which we won with scores of 6-5 and 9-1. We couldn't have done it without Miss Mizon or Mrs Whitear."
Across the course of the day the children were outstanding ambassadors for their school and their Borough too. We couldn’t be more proud of their achievements and success! A very big ‘well done’ from us all!
