Year 7 Cricket v Kings High School

 

The Year 7 cricket team played their first match of the season at The Kings High School today and they came away victoious.  In a 16 over match, Kings batted first and managed to score 40 for 8 with some excellent fielding and bowling from Carleton with Daniel Everson doing the most damage.  Carleton then batted and reached 42 in 8.2 overs to win the game.  Top score from Niaall Charles who scored 21 before carrying his bat and retiring.

The Carleton team consisted of Niall Charles, Aaron Taylor, Dan Everson, Ciaron Stenton, Jack Midgley, Jack Oldham, Liam Armstrong, Cieran McGukin, Ayden Bramham Millington, Brayden Altinbass and Cody Collins.

Below are some photos of the match.

Yorkshire Champions

 

The Year 7 Rugby team are now Yorkshire Champions having beaten Castleford Academy 18 - 8 in the final.  Carleton took the lead in the first five minutes when Ciaran McGuckin collected a high kick deep in his own half and outflanked the defence on the right hand side to cut in and score under the sticks.  Jake Stones converted the try, as he did Brad Allsop's later in the half, and Carleton changed ends at half time with a 12-0 lead. 

McGuckin used his pace again in the second half to extend the league wuith a third try that Stones converted and the game at 18-0 looked to be safe. Castleford, who in August will be competing at Wembley for the National Cup, were not finished though and as Carleton lost their concentration and to a certain extent their discipline, Castleford came back with two tries.  Both tries were scored well out on the wing so both conversions were missed and Carleton were able to raise their game again with a ten point buffer.  The final whistle went with Carleton pressing to extend their lead and the players were able to celebrate the first Yorkshire Cup that Carleton have achieved in it's fifty year existence. 

Ciaran McGuckin was rightly awarded the man of the match, but this was a game won on team play and sound defence all the way across the field.

The pictures below do not reflect the fact that the main stand, behind the photographer, was packed with parents and supporters from both teams and the atmosphere was electric.  A real experience for all the students involved.

They played some fantastic rugby during the group stages and finsished 3rd in our group stage. Let's hope that with continued training and hard work they can improve on this next year!

Our year 8 football team beat Kings 2-0 in the Division 2 football final last night held at Hemsworth and will now be playing in Division 1 next year. Goals from Theo Bacon and Jordan Kirby sealed a comfortable win, with excellent personal performances from Sonny Law and Mo Shah.

Only two losses all season show that they deserve to be playing in a higher league next year.

Carleton Year 10's played Wakefield City Academy in the Final of the Division 2 League Cup. Earlier in the Year when the teams met City won by 12 points so a tough game was expected.

Things started badly for Carleton when they failed to return the kick off and conceded from the resulting drop out.   Scores were soon level though when Clayton Bedford got on the end of a kick from Ethan Potts to get Carleton's first try. The game was a tough contest down the middle with both sets of forwards carrying and defending well.  City scored again after back to back sets to take the lead before Carleton again tied the scores after Ethan Potts showed good strength to muscle over just before half time a try that was converted by Adam Edwards.

The second half continued as the first ended with both teams giving everything they had.  City were the first team on the score board in the second half with a converted try.  Carleton responded with the try of the game when Will Ashley took a high kick under pressure deep in his own half and broke 50 metres leaving a trail of missed tackles before putting Jordan Taylor in for a try under the posts.  This was once again converted but with time running out City re- took a four point lead after a score in the corner. Carleton did not panic and managed to push City deep into their own half and play out some fantastic sets before Connor Hampson crashed over from 5 metres to tie the game. Adam Edwards kicked the conversion to take the score to 22 - 20 in Carleton's favour and the boys then controlled the ball well for the final four minutes to win a dramatic final.

Well done to all the boys involved.

 

Varsity Rugby

 

On Thursday 6th March we held our first Varsity Rugby event at Pontefract Rugby Club. There were 82 students from Carleton playing across 5 different teams. Boys' teams from year 7, 8 and 9 and two girls' teams, a year 7&8 combined and year 9&10 combined.


It was a fantastic occasion with many parents and other students attending to spectate, creating a great atmosphere. After their matches, students enjoyed after-match teas in the club house.


Participation in rugby union has grown hugely this year. The boys are now playing both rugby league and rugby union, continuing to perform well in Rugby league with some great results this season, whilst also making progress in the transition to Rugby Union, again with some pleasing match results.


For the girls it has been a very successful first year of rugby with huge improvements resulting in the year 7/8 team beating Kings in Varsity and the year 9/10 team just losing out in a well contested game.


Our students looked particularly smart in our 3 new rugby kits; including one which was a bespoke design created by our students at a Cantebury kit designing workshop.


4 players of the match trophies were awarded to students, whose excellent performance made a real difference to their team, playing with passion, pride and commitment. These students are; Tegan Hastings (year 10), Tia Midgley (year 8), Bailey Lawson (year 8) and Jake Cook (year 9).

 

Well done to all involved! Training continues Thursdays 3:30 at Pontefract Rugby Club.

As part of this week's 'Stop the Clock Day' the P.E. department invited in Steve Greatorex who coaches 'Wheelchair Basketball' and 'Wheelchair Rugby' at Featherstone Sports Centre.

 

wheelchair01
Having got used to controlling the chairs, forwards, backwards and especially stopping, the students then played a version of wheelchair bulldog where they had to cross the sportshall without being 'tigged'.  The students and staff certainly enjoyed the experience and it opened everyone's eyes to the problems experienced by many sports people.
