Year 5 / 6 Rounders

Wow! I am really impressed with the dedication and team spirit shown during this week’s rounders tournament. The team worked well together and led by example. Out of the starting blocks in our pool stages, we won the first match against All Saints A 6 – 2½. Following on, against St Mary’s A we also won with a tremendous 5 – 1. It was an excellent 40 minutes. Unfortunately, against Kilmington we lost focus and were defeated 3½ – 5½. This did not get them down and they came back fighting. The winner of our pool was very close, with All Saints A achieving 2 wins and 1 defeat, just like we did! However, they had less ‘outs’ and therefore won the pool. We knew it was not over, the children played against All Saints B and won 6½ – 3½. That meant we were automatically through to the East Devon finals, all that was left to win was the plate. The children really did the school proud and worked tirelessly as a team to win their final match against All Saints B, to be crowned the overall rounders winners. Well done to everyone who took part and thank you to all parents who drove. On to East Devon we go!!
