FLIPPA BALL - WARRIORS - YEARS 5 & 6 - 17 SEPTEMBER 2018

This was a semi-final game for the Warriors. They understood that a win here would mean they would be in the finals next week and their performance was outstanding.  The defenders swamped the opposition strikers and limited their ability to take clear shots at goal. The Warrior strikers worked well by creating space or drawing defenders and then passing the ball which meant great scoring opportunities. The Warriors won 10-1 and Players of the Day were Eli for creating goal scoring opportunities, and Ella for being a safe set of hands in goal and accurate throwing.

FLIPPA BALL - MARLINS - YEARS 3 & 4 - 17 SEPTEMBER 2018

The Marlins' strikers dominated this game through their accurate throwing and unselfishly looking to pass the ball to their teammates that weren’t marked. The unmarked players were usually able to score a goal. Our defenders were also able to keep the attacking team away from the goal and reduce their attempts to score. The final score was 13-1 to the Marlins. Players of the Day went to Aston, Anna and Ollie for their great passing and unselfish play.

BASKETBALL - ASTEROIDS - YEARS 5 & 6 - 17 SEPTEMBER 2018

Even though we lost the game, the whole team played really well with lots of good passing and numerous goal attempts. There were two Players of the Day being Brooke and Annie.  They displayed excellent passing to one another as well as both being feisty and confident in getting the ball off their opponents.

FLIPPA BALL - WARRIORS - YEARS 5 & 6 - 10 SEPTEMBER 2018

We started the game conceding two very quick goals and before we knew it we were down 3-0. We got back a couple of goals by half time, had a chat about sticking to our game plan and then went on to win the game 6-3. It was a good game where the defenders became resolute and stopped the opposition getting any further points in the second half. The strikers also had a mind-set change and started passing to those in a position that enabled them to score points. Players of the Day were Ben Oliver for an outstanding defensive effort and Rosa Clark for her great defence and creating goal scoring opportunities when on attack.

FLIPPA BALL - MARLINS - YEARS 3 & 4 - 10 SEPTEMBER 2018

The Marlins were missing a couple of players which meant some positional changes, however in spite of these changes the team played very well. The ball went from end to end throughout the whole game, however the score was a draw at 1-1. It was good to see some passing and great defence.  Player of the Day was Chelsea Paxton for getting involved and trying to always pass the ball to players with space.

BASKETBALL - ROCKETS - YEARS 5 & 6 - 10 SEPTEMBER 2018

The Rockets played a very good game even though they lost 6-12.  Tyson & Annie were usually in a good spot to get the ball and get it up the court.  I received Player of the Day because I was all over the court & for good passing.

CROSS COUNTRY - INTERSCHOOL - 3 SEPTEMBER 2018

What a bright, sunny day we had at cross country last Thursday. Despite the sunny weather, the ground was muddy and there were lots of puddles to run through. The students who attended cross country did an excellent job to get around, as the course was very difficult. They had to run through sheep paddocks, dodge lambs, run up hills and jump fences. The beach run started off with a high tide, so they had two choices: run through the water or risk the soft sand. What really impressed the teachers and parents was how the children tried their best and persevered with the race. No matter where they were coming in the race, they just kept running and running. It was great to see the Wentworth team spirit as our peers ran past!



FLIPPA BALL - WARRIORS - YEARS 5 & 6 - 3 SEPTEMBER 2018

The Warriors had a good win, with our defence keeping the opposition outside the strike zone. For most of the game we played with two defenders and 4 strikers. The strikers played well and started recognising when a player was open and passing to that player. The Warriors won 9-1 and Player of the Day was Ella for great goal keeping and accurate throwing.

FLIPPA BALL - MARLINS - YEARS 3 & 4 - 3 SEPTEMBER 2018

The Marlins had a tough game and struggled to get the ball into the opposition red zone, although they did score on two of the three occasions that they ventured into that zone. Our defence tightened up in the second half as the defenders began to keep the opposition working hard. The final score was 7-2 against us. Player of the Day was Daniel Chen for outstanding defence and goal keeping.

BASKETBALL - ASTEROIDS - YEARS 5 & 6 - 3 SEPTEMBER 2018

NETBALL - WENTWORTH STARS - YEARS 5 & 6 - 3 SEPTEMBER 2018

What a way to finish a brilliant season!
Our Wentworth Stars, in pyjamas, had an absolutely brilliant final game on Thursday night.  The smiles on the faces of our girls outshone the 20-2 score!  This team has shown significant resilience and adaptability this year and we are all extremely proud of their efforts.  The attitude with which they have played the game must be mentioned, as our team has been kind, fair and polite whilst still managing to remain competitive!  Thank you to our College coaches who have given up their time to guide our girls throughout this netball journey.  You are a credit to yourselves and we are thankful to you for your support of our Primary school.  Thank you to the parents who have turned up each week to cheer on our team of all-stars - it is much appreciated.  Thank you also to Ann Neilson for kindly volunteering to manage our team - we are grateful for your time and help.  I do hope that our Year 6 girls move on to College netball and I certainly look forward to seeing the new Wentworth Stars shine on court next year.  Player of the Day was our entire team for a wonderful final performance!
