Cross Country Team Information

Wednesday 1st March is the final cross country league race at Woodmansterne.

Parents and pupils should congregate & wait in the far corner of the car park, near the entrance to the school. Please ensure that pupils are not running around unescorted in the car park.

The organisers will stop people parking once the Walcountians car park is full so that people can get out easier at the end of the event. There is a village hall car park 100m further up the road on the right hand side which can serve as an overflow car park.

The winner of the cross country league will be announced at the end of this event and presented with a trophy. It looks very close at the top at the moment, so everything to run for!

Netball

Well done to the Year 6 Green Netball Team who beat Cheam Park Farm 1 – 0 yesterday. Zoe scored with only thirty seconds of the match remaining! The team fought hard and were excellent!

Hockey Tournament

Yesterday, the Year 5 & 6 Hockey Club played in a Quick-Sticks Hockey  tournament at Nonsuch High.

The event had two different tournaments and Avenue had three teams. The children showed excellent team spirit and learnt lots of new skills. The last match was Avenue A V Avenue B .  They both finished 3rd in their groups so had to play each other in a playoff match. Avenue A won the game in extra time with a golden goal.

Well done to everyone involved!

Semi Finals 

Avenue 0 V 0 Muschamp

Pens: Avenue 2 V 0 Muschamp

After a two great games in the knock-out stages the team successfully qualified for the final. An impressive team performance meant that the team achieved this without conceding a goal. This is even more impressive as the Semi Final was a penalty shoot out which consisted of three penalties for each team. Luke made a great save in goal and Muschamp’s other penalty went over the bar. Jonathan and Charlie took their penalties very confidently for Avenue, which meant the boys were through to the final.

Final

Avenue 0 V 1 Cheam Common A

Both teams had already met in the group stage and so we knew the final was going to be very close. Both teams had chances during the game but it looked like it was going to go to penalties. With one minute to go, Cheam Common were awarded a free-kick just outside of the box and they scored with a great direct strike. The final whistle was blown straight after.

The boys were very disappointed to lose in the last minute of the final. However, they should be very proud of what they achieved. The whole team played really well! Well done boys!
