On Tuesday night we took along two handball teams, a year 3 and a year 4 team, both looking to win this competition for the first time for our school. Our year 3 team would play games against Mundy 'A', Langley Mill and Richardson, drawing 3-3 against Langley Mill and losing the other 2 games, whilst showing improvement every game. This meant that they would playoff for 10th place, which they did successfully with wins against 2 teams from Langley Mill.
Our year 4 team were grouped with Mundy 'B', Marlpool and Langley Mill and they were fantastic in their game play winning all 3 games with great attacking and defending skills and fantastic teamwork. This meant that they would progress to playoff for the chance to win the competition against Mundy 'A' and Denby. In the first game we took a 3-0 lead but were then pegged back to 3-2 before scoring two penalties to make it 5-2. Mundy scored again to make it a nervous end but we ended the game 5-3 winners!
Mundy then beat Denby, meaning we knew that a draw would be good enough to win the competition, which we did in style with a convincing 5-2 win against Denby.
The children were rightly delighted with their success, but were still good sports as they shook hands, and even tried to console one of Denby's team who was upset at their defeat. The win continues our fantastic start to the year, having now won 4 competitions, and we just hope we can continue this amazing success for 2020!
