Year 7 : Yavneh 10 – 1 Stanborough
Year 10: Yavneh 1 – 3 Stanborough
Stanborough’s Year 10 team continued their unbeaten run in the district league by beating Yavneh on Monday. Stanborough came out of the blocks fast and took an early lead after a great finish from Michael Rodriguez. Bailey Cripps soon doubled the advantage with a fine goal. Yavneh started to grow into the game and Luke Laurence made a fine string of saves to keep the home team at bay. A third goal was then scored by Stanborough, the impressive Rodriguez scoring his second and the third for the greens. Yavneh were able to score just before the break to keep the game alive. An injury to Joe Georgiou meant Stanborough had to make a tactical change and bring on Max Saunders, Cripps was moved to centre back to try and solidify the back line as Yavneh were now pressing for a second goal. A string of brilliant saves from Laurence in the Stanborough goal kept Stanborough’s lead intact and they were able to hold on for victory. Man of the Match was given to Laurence who treated the spectators to one of the finest goal keeping displays seen in a Stanborough shirt.
Stanborough’s Year 7 team suffered a heavy defeat to Yavneh in their district cup match. Stanborough were missing some important players and this made a big difference to the team. Stanborough started the game brightly and were on top for the opening exchanges, unfortunately a string of poor decisions in the back four let Yavneh in far too often and they were clinical in front of goal. The boys will look to lift themselves when they travel to Ridgeway on Tuesday next week.

There were plenty of netball matches played this week as Stanborough took on Monk’s Walk in six matches. Stanborough came away with two wins, one draw and three defeats from their matches but it was amazing to see so many girls taking part in netball and sports for Stanborough. A special mention to the Year 7B team who comprehensively beat Monk’s Walk and are now undefeated this year. Stanborough’s Year 9B team also ran out comfortable winners in their game thanks to some great play from Emma Hudson. The Year 10 team took part in a nail biting match against Monk’s Walk which ended in a draw, the girls can feel proud of their achievement but may feel a bit disappointed that they didn’t win after being in front for much of the game. Well done to all students who took part.
