Year 10 Rugby 

Southam V Bilton (Varsity Match)

Confidence boosting win for the Year 10 Rugby Team.

The Year 10 Rugby Team produced their best performance of the year so far with a comprehensive victory in the Varsity Rugby fixture against a slightly weakened Bilton team.

Our forwards took control in the first half, dominating possession and territory, crossing the line 3 times with Ben Leahy kicking some great conversion to extend our lead to 21-0 at half-term. It could have been more if Lucas Evans had remembered to ground the ball after a mazing run took him past half the Bilton time, but also out of play!

Bilton hit back early in the second half, capitalising from an early Southam ‘knock on’. We didn’t, however, let this affect our game. Strong running from Matthew Hughes and tireless work from our forwards, wrestled control of the game back definitively. Bilton ran out of answers to our incessant pressure and we scored 5 more times in the 2nd half to record a 52-7 victory.

Congratulations to the team on a great performance. You filled you Head of Year with pride. It was just a pity that a number of last minute drop outs weren’t able to share in our success!

Tries from: Matthew Hughes (3), Dan Turner, Joe Bromley, Sam Washbrook, Charlie Thwaites and Mackenzie Spilman-Penn. Ben Leahy – 6 conversions.

Man of the Match – Matthew Hughes

Drama Trip

Last night the Drama department took thirty two Year 11 students to Warwick Bridge House Theatre to watch the Greek tragedy of Antigone.

The production was excellent, the Ancient text was brought to life on stage; set in a dystopian world, complete with drones. The students were a credit to the school and will have plenty to write about in their final exam.

Year 11 Football

Southam v Kineton

The Yr 11 football team racked up another convincing win with an 8-2 victory at home against Kineton.

Hoping to build on a good win from our last outing, we didn’t start with the quality of football that we are capable of, making too many unforced errors and giving to ball away cheaply. With Kineton growing into the game, we managed to settle any nerves with 2 well taken goals from Riley Birch. Our own worst enemy, we gifted Kineton a goal giving them a way back into the game. Fortunately the 2 goal cushion was restored before half-time by Owen Kennedy, and we didn’t look back from then on.

Our passing and movement improved after the break, and with Kineton tiring, our industry and pace fashioned out many more opportunities. Further goals from Birch and Kennedy, a brace from Josh Thomas and a penalty from the hefty boot of Goal-keeper Oz Kee, secured a comfortable win and the team await their next opponents with anticipation.

Man of the Match – Josh Thomas.
