What a game and what a performance from the team in blue and white! Beginning their defence of the Les Riggs Cup, Minster fell a goal behind to a well taken goal in the first half. At half time, Minster regrouped and after the break looked a completely different team. Tristan H in midfield started hunting down the opposition, breaking down their attacks time and time again and with Harry W (Minster's Mr Dependable at the back) marshalling from the back, it was only a matter of time before they got a stranglehold on the game. The equaliser came from a truly superb finish from Liam N - a well take volley executed perfectly with the ball nestling in the bottom corner of the net. The momentum was now with Minster. Upton couldn't cope with their running, passing, intelligence and strength and their fears were soon realised when Minster scored 3 quick goals to ensure a resounding 4-1 success and safe passage through to the next round.
Great performance Minster!
In blistering sunshine Minster CofE Primary Cricket Team did their school proud, winning 2 out of their 3 games against Newlands Primary and Drapers Mills. Jake G won 'Champagne Moment' of the tournament by taking a tremendous catch over his head and looking into the sun. Liam N and his brother, James N also played some fantastic cricket with their bowling and batting at times scintillating. Connie and Mikey C also played some wonderful cricket especially out in the field where they stopped vital runs. Archie B improved as the tournament progressed; his bowling being accurate and awkward for the batsperson. Luke H played like a professional, directing the fielders into position and batting and bowling with aggression. Jude B also played some terrific cricket with fantastic wicket keeping and bowling and batting that had the opposition against the ropes on more than one occasion!
Well done team - a great start to the cricket season.
We're practicing hard to ensure our cricket skills are ready for the Kwik Cricket tournament on Friday. Today we have been practicing our bowling, making sure that we hold the ball correctly, keep a straight arm (bend it and it's a no ball!) and also making sure that our lead arm acts as our guide. Mr McCarthy has told us that bowling wins matches - he also told us catches wins matches!
Minster (Year 4/5) vs St Nicholas
Monday 22nd May 2017
On a sweltering afternoon, the Minster football team (minus the Year 6 players) visited St Nicholas at Wade. The game was well fought, with Minster having the majority of possession and chances but it was the opposition who went a goal ahead thanks to a breakaway goal. Minster regrouped at half time and a fine passing move and then dribble by Tristan got the teams level. That goal led to Minster growing in confidence and Tyler and Tristan again scored fine goals to give us an unassailable lead. Minster ended 3-1 winners with a good performance and lots of positive play to take into next season.
Result - Minster 3 - 1 St Nicholas at Wade
