    WINNERS! Boccia Competition @ Robert Sutton – January 5th 2017

    WINNERS! Boccia Competition @ Robert Sutton – January 5th 2017

    A team from 5CL and a team from 5HN represented Edge Hill in this School Games Qualifier for the County Finals.

    Both teams played really well, winning some of their group matches whilst narrowly losing others. As usual, the individual games were very close affairs and were often decided by a single winning ball – especially when the jacks were sent out long. The Edge Hill B team tried their hardest but unfortunately did not win enough games and matches to get them to the semis. However, Edge Hill A did brilliantly to finish their group with enough points to win a semi-final place!

    In their semi-final, Edge Hill A won both opening games against Shobnall B to secure a place in the final! Much excitement followed as they waited to see who they would meet.

    The final was against William Shrewsbury and, like all of the other matches, consisted of 3 games. The team narrowly lost the opening game 1-0, then pulled level by winning the second game also by a 1-0 scoreline. The deciding final game went to Edge Hill after the opening ball stayed unbeaten throughout the entire game!  Well done team!! Hooray!!

    As well as winning the trophy and gold medals, this means that Edge Hill will go forward to the School Games Finals at Keele University in June!

    A Huge Well Done to both of our teams:

    Edge Hill A: Jorja, Charlie, Conner and Holly!

    Edge Hill B: Josh, Lily, Isobel and George!
