Outstanding performance from boys' handball teams
Published on 11/05/17
Our handball teams did Orchard School proud yesterday as they battled it out in the regional finals.
Neither team lost a match, but goal difference placed them second in both groups. Unfortunately, only the top teams qualified for the final.
The under 13s had the difficult challenge of needing to win by 20 goals in their last game after Sheldon School won 15-1.
The under 15s only needed to win by three, but after having four goals disallowed and a missed penalty, they unfortunately could not quite do it. They also had a poor decision go against them in their first game that resulted in an 8-8 draw.
All boys put in outstanding effort. Their resilience and respect in the face of adversity was admirable.
