St Mary's year 5 football team competed in the Southern area football tournament. After qualifying through the group stages with 3 wins and 1 loss they then progressed in the knockout stages of the completion and finally took first place after a great performance in the final against the team they previously suffered defeat to in the group stages. They played throughout the day with great sportsmanship, determination and work ethic and the whole of St Mary's school if very proud of them. WELL DONE BOYS!!!
As an added treat, here is what the children from the the football out read to the school in our Friday Act of Worship:
On Wednesday, 10 year 5 boys went to a football tournament at Mill Hill Powerleague.
We played really well, only losing 1 game in the whole tournament.
We advanced all the way to theSouth Barnet final facing the team who had beaten us previously4-2 in the group stage.
At the end we won 2-1 ad came 1st in the South of Barnet. We played really well and our sportsmanship was fantastic.
After Easter we will progress to the borough finals. The main thing was that we were supporting each other even if we were not playing.
