Western vs Highfield Prep

On another cold Friday afternoon Western Primary took another short journey to Harrogate Ladies College. This time, with Year 3 & Year 6 to challenge Highfield Prep School in football and netball respectively.

The Year 3 football teams – prepared for a wet, muddy game, faced up against their opposition and were fantastic. The passing, movement and communication on a pitch which had cut up was something to behold. Topped off with some fantastic strikes and defending from both teams, it made for a fantastic event.

The football can be summarised by the comments of one child at the walk back to school – “Mr Doey, the mud has dried on my skin and it hurts, but I had so much fun!” Both Western & Highfield won one match each, and the sports were fantastic.

As the football took place on the cold muddy fields of Highfield, the netball went ahead on the slightly drier but certainly no warmer netball courts! Two High 5’s netball matches went ahead and the standard shocked those watching. The passing, movement and communication between all the players made the netball very easy on the eye.

With the ball moving around at 100mph it was hard to keep track of the game at times, but there were certainly no complaints! Western eventually ran out winners of both of the matches, but we certainly believe the real winner was sport in both of the fixtures. Well done to all the children involved.
