A Superb Performance from our Y5/6 handball team in their first ever Handball Competition!
Congratulations to all of our pupils who took part in the handball Doncaster Schools Finals today and they certainly represented our school well.
Some great teamwork and skills were shown throughout the day in the pouring rain but Bentley High Street didn't let that stop them. We eased through our group winning all 5 games and winning the group in style, scoring lots and lots of goals in the process. After a long afternoon and playing 5 matches back to back the team were now in the Doncaster Schools Final.
The team just went from strength to strength but were up against a superb team from Owston Park who have won the handball Doncaster Schools Finals for the past two years. Unfortunately for us, Owston Park's experience at handball was the difference between the two sides and they eventually went on to win the game and the Doncaster Final.
Overall the team played extremely well and deserved to be crowned Doncaster Schools Runners Up 2017, especially as this was their first ever handball festival.
A special mention to the Player of the tournament which was given to Jimmy Farrow in Y6 and to Joe Lynskey Y5 for his superb attitude and sportsmanship.
