Sports Round-up from Holsworthy Community College

02 February 2022 |

Holsworthy Year 7 netball team have got off to a flying start this year! The first match of the year was a superb 14-0 win over Bude with Evie (GK) being selected as player of the match due to her impenetrable defence. We followed this with a much tougher game against Tavistock that we managed to win 5-2, Evie (GK) demonstrated her defensive prowess and was selected as player of the match once again. Then it was Torrington, which was a challenging game but we managed to secure the win 15-5. Some excellent shooting skills saw Neve (GA) named as player of the match. Most recently we played Kingsley and managed to continue our winning run beating them 28-6 with Neve (GA) being named as player of the match after exhibiting great link up play and shooting skills in the circle with Ruby (GS). We are now training hard for the North Devon netball tournament in March and look forward to playing some more friendly fixtures in preparation for this. Throughout all of the matches Holsworthy have shown great teamwork, solidarity, resilience and determination. Keep up the great work girls!!

Match Report Year 10 County Cup

On Monday 10 January, the Year 10 football team travelled to Queen Elizabeth School in Crediton to play in the county cup. It was a very wet day and the pitch was hard to play on as the grass was extremely long. As the match kicked off, within a minute, a penalty was conceded which they scored. After that, we all got our heads in the game and created lots of chances but unfortunately no goals were scored. We had to change our style of play as the pitch was so long, so we started play more channel balls.

As the second half kicked off, we dominated in attack playing balls through but still no goals as chances were unfortunately wasted. Then the game continued and as we were losing stamina, they managed to put two more goals past the keeper with the final result being 3-0. The score didn’t reflect the whole match so we can have our heads held high.
