Our first flippaball game for the term started off slowly as players got used to their positions. As the game progressed it was pleasing to see the players get settled into their role and focus on their passing and striking. There was a high level of communication between the players as they began to play as a team.  The final result was 8:4 to Wentworth. Player of the Day was Isabella Ovenden for her communication and selfless play in passing the ball to players who had better shooting opportunities.

After months of training, dedication and hard work, our wonderful Year 5/6 basketball team, the Hornets, have won their Term 2 league competition.

It was a fiercely-contested final game against Red Beach, with our team down to 5 players and no substitutes due to holiday dates. There was really very little to separate the teams, with all players determined to take top spot. It was gripping, non-stop, end-to-end action as passes and interceptions saw the game change direction in the blink of an eye. 

With the Hornets behind in the last couple of minutes, the supporters could only hold their breath as William was awarded a penalty shot, which he took full advantage of, putting the ball expertly through the net to draw level. It was in the dying seconds of the game, with the referee putting the whistle to his lips that Austin managed to pass the ball to Maddie who fired it through the hoop to bring a well-deserved victory to the Hornets.

An oustanding Final from both teams and an excellent result for our players (11:10). Congratulations to the Hornets and to coach, Stephen Hill.

FLIPPABALL - End of Term 2 - 2016

The first Flippaball game in Term 3 will be played this Sunday on 31 July.  

In our last game, the team played well!  We were missing some of our players, which meant some had to play in new positions. It was pleasing to see everyone got involved and played to their best. Player of the Day was Charlotte Sancto-Jones for a fabulous game despite taking a ball in the face! Unfortunately we lost 6:3 but it was an evenly matched game and really could have gone either way.
