FLIPPA BALL - THE WARRIORS - YEARS 5 & 6 - 25TH JUNE 2018

The Warriors experimented with the strikers and it seemed to work; there was better communication and positional play. The defenders did an outstanding job at making the opposition work hard to get any decent shots at goal. The final score was 14-2 to Wentworth. Player of the Day was Rosa Clark for excellent playing, both on defence and on attack.

FLIPPA BALL - YEARS 3 & 4 - MARLINS - 25TH JUNE 2018

We were missing some players but the team adjusted and did their best. Our defence was solid, especially the goal keeping. The strikers got limited ball but did have some shots to goal. Unfortunately, none of these were converted into points and Wentworth lost 6-0.  Player of the Day was Sophie Imparato for very good defensive work.

Last Friday, Wentworth Primary and Alumni students challenged the rest of Wentworth College to a 10th Anniversary game of Netball. This game was being labelled "Grudge Match II", the first match-up being the Basketball game in Term 1. The non-Wentworth Primary team started out very strongly and scored 5 very quick points, however the Wentworth Primary Alumni team regrouped and started to dominate proceedings. The final score was 14-11 to Wentworth Primary and Alumni. Thank you to Olivo for helping to organise this event and to Mrs White for umpiring.

FLIPPA BALL - THE WARRIORS - YEARS 5 & 6 - 18 JUNE 2018

The Warriors had a good solid game, and during the second half they started to experiment with different positional plays and positions. This resulted in leaking some points, but the Warriors always had the game under control, winning 7-3. Player of the Day was James Nathan for outstanding goal keeping and ball control.

FLIPPA BALL - YEARS 3 & 4 - THE MARLINS - 18 JUNE 2018

The Marlins had a tough game. At one stage it looked like the game was going to run away from them but three quick goals saw them draw equal. Unfortunately, the Marlins were unable to capitalise on this and ended up losing 7-3. Player of the Day was Luke Vaudrey for great hassling defence.

BASKETBALL - THE ROCKETS & THE ASTEROIDS - YEARS 3 & 4, 5 & 6 - 11 JUNE 2018

It was Wentworth vs Wentworth this evening.  The Asteroids won and the Rockets lost.  It was 17-7.  The Player of the Day was Alexander Kawan for the most points scored and for his defence and attack.  It was a good game bus some people did unfortunately get hurt, but I think everyone enjoyed it!  The Rockets were lucky enough to get either 2 or 3 penalty shots.
