Perseverance in the Face of Tough Competition - Year 7 & 8 Football Team Work Together

Match Review by Roving Sports Reporter, William Rogers, Year 6

On Wednesday 27th September, the Year 7 and 8 boys (and me, Will Rogers, from Year 6) played an extremely tough game of football against Oakgrove School. None of us had played together as a team before but we showed great ability in attack against a team who showed awesome techniques and skills in all areas.

Anyway, back to us.

Mr Small was thrilled with how we played on the battlefield. Although we were defeated, we showed great skills in attack, defence and teamwork, especially in the second half when Haseeb saved some awesome shots that were on target.

Although eight goals were conceded, it could have been so much worse, so well done Hasseeb and our defenders.
The stand out player of the match in my opinion was Elliot Balchin-Love (Year 8) in attack, closely followed by Oliver Hayward (Year 7), also an attacker.

The final score was 8-0 to Oakgrove.

Well done Webber!

What have you done today to make YOU feel proud?

In the middle of the way of our life I found myself lost In a blue desert surrounded by Wild spitting beasts; Saved by criminals and allowed to live...
Blue desert that has no pity of our Misadventures, no emotion regarding our Derelict children, innocent of any Crime, but ripped apart by the weight of  Death.
Vast and proud he stands as a barrier Between us and Hope: She knows us very well; we met, When the wind was calm and  The frantic sun did not bomb us. She left now, all that remains are Her footprints in our minds.
In the middle of our adventure, Looking for better or simple right of life; We struggle as the smugglers talk of The Jungle and its gate towards A possibility to begin.

Tuesday 26th September 2017

The following girls represented Webber in the Year 7 Netball match against Oakgrove on Tuesday evening: Jessica, Kaiyah, Kashish, Vanessa, Akari, Elizabeth (Year 8) and Amaya (Year 8).

The girls started well with Vanessa intercepting Oakgrove's first centre pass, which put the opposition under pressure. There was some excellent passing between Amaya, Elizabeth and Vanessa within the centre third, which led to a few opportunities within the circle. However, Oakgrove soon picked up their game and secured the lead. 

A switch of positions enabled us to put more pressure on their attack with Vanessa one-to-one marking their best player, which allowed us to gain possession on numerous occasions. Unfortunately our shooting was not at its best and Oakgrove managed to stay ahead throughout the four quarters. 

A big well done to the team who continued to play with their heads held high.

8-2 Win for Webber Netball Dream TeamOur U14 netball champions continued their winning streak on Tuesday, beating Oakgrove 8-2. Once again our girls showed their determination and outstanding skills - remaining unbeaten this season. 

The starting seven put us in a strong position with Sophie and Sam securing three goals in the first quarter. In the second quarter Alison and Sophie continued to put pressure on our opponents with another three goals.

Lily, Jaanvi and our new addition to the team, Lucie, made up a sterling defence and prevented Oakgrove from any opportunities in their attacking circle. Aaliya and Jaydie displayed excellent centre court passing and interceptions, which meant Webber regained possession and discontinued Oakgrove's advantages. 

The final two quarters saw the Webber girls take us into a winning position securing another two goals, with Oakgrove achieving their first two goals of the match. Our champions …

YEAR 6 HOCKEY - THE WEBBER SPIRIT IS STRONG

Thursday 21st September Mrs Willis Reports

Six prep students participated in the MKSSP Hockey Introduction at Woughton On The Green. The evening involved fun warm up games, skills and drills and learning how to take penalty corners, finishing off with some friendly games.
The rain certainly didn't dampen our students high spirits, and they showed some excellent dedication and teamwork as they played against Christ The Sower Primary School in a friendly game. 

A breakthrough of the oppositions defence gave Will an opportunity to score a goal and take Webber into the lead, with William and Harry teaming up to make an excellent attacking duo.The team kept the pressure on and a couple of minutes later Emilien scored our second goal! A special mention to Reo who was as fast as lightning up and down the pitch, and to Georgia and Daisy who made up our strong defence. 

We look forward to more Hockey at Woughton…

Roving reporter, William Rogers, Year 6 reports.This evening saw the first Year 9 to 11 home football fixture against The Milton Keynes Academy (MKA). 

Although the final score was 11-3 to MKA, the Webber boys played extremely well against a very tall team! We created great chances but their keeper was too strong. However, the three goals that were scored by Tom Loh (2) and Kavin Muhunthan were amazing, especially Tom's goal from the half way line that went in to the top right hand corner. We have a Messi in the school! Watch out!

Kory, Ty, Aaron and Jamie showed great anticipation with their amazing through balls and tackles and not to forget our goal keeper Lionel Fraser who made some astounding saves, as well as letting in 11!

After the match Mr Small was interviewed and he said: 

"The commitment and ability to play on was absolutely outstanding. They never gave up, that's what The Webber is all about." 

When asked who stood out in the team, …
