Sports News W/C 10 February 2020
On Tuesday the Year 8 rugby team along with a couple of year 7s took part in the partnership school rugby competition at Bridgnorth Rugby Club. The boys played brilliantly, this time beating Bridgnorth Endowed School comfortably in a 6 tries to 0 win. The boys' teamwork and attitude in supporting each other proving to be the real difference. The boys were then presented with a different challenge against Idsall school playing with a player less, however still overcoming them and running out 4 tries to 0. Incredible defensive effort saw them repeal them from their own try line then run the length of the field to score on the opposite try line. Really positive work and the boys should look forward to some of the county cup games coming up ~ Mr Cowburn

Last week the Year 9 rugby team played their first game of the season against a very strong and disciplined Adams Grammar team. The boys played with a lot of heart and continued to play some excellent rugby in the face of a stronger opposition. The boys really did the school proud even though they were on the end of a heavy defeat. However, against some of the other schools in the county they showed enough in this game to show they would put up a real challenge and should look forward to playing again. Well done boys, lets move on to the next game.

A fantastic all round performance by the Year 8 Oldbury indoor athletics teams. They ran, jumped and threw their way into first place in the partnership competition. The boys team were outright winners and have earned their place to represent East Shropshire in the upcoming County Games finals, while the girls finished in joint first along with Bridgnorth Endowed School. Congratulations to both teams!
Year 7 took part in the quarter final of the Presidents Cup on Wednesday night against Madeley Academy. Narrowly losing in the final minutes of a well fought game. Well done to the Year 7 team.
On 23rd Jan the Year 9 and Year 10 boys were involved in the chance to compete in the regional final at Ludlow school. Securing a win with four balls to spare and progressing on to the county finals day in February. Congratulations boys.
Well done to the Year 8 girls who took part in the partnership handball competition on Wednesday 22 January. They played well as a team, creating numerous goal scoring opportunities as well as developing their tactical awareness to minimise the opposing teams’ attack. They missed out on going through to the next stages but should be very proud of their performances.
On Thursday 16th January, Oldbury Wells played friendlies against Bridgnorth Endowed with both schools having a Year 7 and a Year 8 team. Each year group played two matches during the evening. The Year 7 team showed great cooperation, communication and skill. Their games finished OWS 4 – BES 0, and OWS 7 – BES 3. The Year 8 team, despite also having great skill and cooperation finished their games OWS 1- BES 11 and OWS 3 – BES 8. Their tactical changes and rotation of positions lead to a better second game performance. Both teams conducted themselves in a wonderful manner and played with good sportsmanship throughout. Well done girls.

Year 7 Girls County Cup Football
The Year 7s performed really well, despite terrible playing conditions in their County Cup fixture against Shrewsbury Academy. After having a lot of possession at the beginning of the first half they went behind after Anna Cole had made two very good saves in the Oldbury goal. Player of the match, Mayah Hill, was fantastic in defence, midfield and attack throughout the game, making decisive challenges and attacking runs to try to level the scoreline. A number of narrow misses from Freya Jones, Mayah and Frankie Bowen could have meant that Oldbury Wells took the lead, but unfortunately they went just wide and hit the post. Two good goals from Mayah and Freya made the final scoreline 2-5, but this didn’t reflect the performance that the girls put in.
