On Wednesday 4th November our Year 6 Tag Rugby team made their way over to Lowestoft to participate in the L&B School Sports Partnership Tag Rugby Tournament.
In our first game we came up against Elmtree Primary, the game was close throughout with each team scoring try after try but it was Beccles Primary Academy who came out on top, with captain Archie guiding them to 30-25 win!
Second game we were up against Blundeston Primary, who showed some great passing skills and dashing runs during the game. It was close for the first 5 minutes, but Blundeston managed to take the game into their hands, taking a high scoring win.
Our final league game was against league leader St Mary’s, a draw or win would have taken us through to the quarter finals stage. We started the game off strong, taking a 5-0 lead, but within 30 seconds St Mary’s drew level. Throughout the game it was end to end with both teams scoring try after try; with the scores locked in the final 2 minutes it was all to play for… St Mary’s made an impressive turn over in the last minute by tagging our team 6 consecutive times and managed to score the winning try from the turn over.
Overall our team finished joint 2nd with Blundeston and Elmtree, but we didn’t quite make it through due to the 2nd place being decided on tries scored.
A big well done to Archie, JJ, Brady, Fran, Rebecca, Kian, Anzelika, Isobel and Max for their never-give-up attitude and doing our school proud.
