Year 5 and 6 Handball Tournament

On Thursday 24th May nine children in Year 6 represented the school in a mixed Handball competition at Kings Heath Boys School.

In total four teams entered the competition, including Chilcote, and each team played each other once. If there was a tie on points at the end of the mini league then the positions would be determined on the head-to-head results between the two tied schools.

In their first match Chilcote played against Kings Norton and took an early setback when conceding from Kings Nortons first attack. However, they rallied and equalised through Madison. They then took the lead through another goal from Madison. Unfortunately, Kings Norton managed to get an equaliser of their own and make it 2v2. Just before the end though Josh had a shot which squirmed through the goalkeepers hands and meant Chilcote won the match 3v2.

In their second game Chilcote struggled against the Oaks. The Oaks dominated the match and really found their shooting hands. Chilcote did take the lead but due to some poor marking ended up losing the match 6v2.

For their final game Chilcote played against Hollywood and recovered from their previous defeat playing their best handball of the day. They made quick passes and took their chances really well. They defended much better too. The game finished 4v1 to Chilcote.

The league finished as follows:

1) Chilcote 6
2) Kings Norton 6
3) The Oaks 4
4) Hollywood 1

Therefore, Chilcote won the tournament courtesy of their win against Kings Norton in the first match. A fantastic achievement, well done to all of the children involved in the tournament!!!
