Next we played St Johns, they had a very tall team and they were very good, but sadly even after Joshua and Cecily’s good defending we lost 8-4. Then we had to play against St James C, after Nathan scored in the first few minutes they managed to scrape it back to win 3-1 and we had lost. We found out we had not made it through to the semi-finals, but our other two teams had got through. Thank you to Mr. Hodges for organising it and the parents for supporting us. We all had a wet, but great time. Also thank you to Lawrence for bringing his umbrella! Team: Nathan, Josh, William, Max, Evie & Cecily. Report by: Nathan & Josh.

Next we had to play one of the other St. James’ teams, we played well and won 4-3. We were through to the semi’s. In the semi-final, we had to play the other St. James team.
