FLIPPA BALL - WARRIORS FINAL GAME - YEARS 5 & 6 - 11 SEPTEMBER 2017

FLIPPA BALL - Years 5 & 6                                                  
This was the final game of the season and the final Flippa Ball game for Year 6 students Amelie, Charlotte, Jahn, Bridie and Liam. As expected it was a hard fought game with the scores to'ing and fro'ing between us and the opposition. In the end the final score was a 3-3 draw. Player of the Day went to Liam for his usual wall-like defence; the whole team also got Player of the Day.
The Years 5/6 team had a great season and improved significantly in Term 3 where both defenders and strikers developed a better understanding of the game and started to play with speed and power. Well done to the whole team for an excellent season. Your coach thanks you very much.

FLIPPA BALL - MARLINS FINAL GAME - YEARS 3 & 4 - 11 SEPTEMBER 2017

FLIPPA BALL - Years 3 & 4
The Marlins had their final game of the year on Sunday evening. It was a great game to watch and an even better end to the year. Everyone worked really hard on swimming with the ball and passing in front of the other team members when they were available. The strikers worked really well as a group, passing amongst each other to open up opportunities to score. The defenders worked hard to stick to their players and stop the ball from getting to the net. Our goalies did well blocking almost every ball that snuck past the defenders and to then throw the ball up the pool to the strikers was a win 12-1.  Player of the Day went to the whole team for playing extremely well for the season. Well done everyone for such a fantastic two terms of Flippa Ball where the team remained undefeated.

FLIPPA BALL - WARRIORS - YEARS 5 & 6 - 4 SEPTEMBER 2017

FLIPPA BALL - Years 5 & 6                                                    
It was a great game this week for the Wentworth Warriors where the opposition pressured our strikers and our defenders. Our solid defence saw the opposition having to take long shots at goal which were relatively easy to stop. The strikers worked on their speed at passing, trying to catch the opposition defence out of position. The final result was a 7-2 win to Wentworth. Players of the Day were Bridie Smith for her excellent striking capabilities and Rory Brabant for his great defensive role as goalie and also for his effective strike role in the first half.

Training for both the Years 3&4 and Years 5&6 Flippa Ball teams will take place on Fridays at the Leisure Centre from 4:00 to 5:00pm.

FLIPPA BALL - MARLINS YEARS 3 & 4 - 4 SEPTEMBER 2017

FLIPPA BALL - Years 3 & 4
The Wentworth Marlins had another great game on Sunday evening. Quite a few of the players played their best game so far. We mixed up the positions at half time putting the strikers in defence and the defenders up in strike and all the players played really well in the new positions. The players were swimming with the ball and sticking to the right positions all through the game. It was another win 8-4 and Player of the Day went to Kahn Heath for his great defensive work by never giving up and fighting for every ball that came his way.

NETBALL - YEARS 5 & 6 - WENTWORTH STARS - 4 SEPTEMBER 2017

NETBALL
The Wentworth Stars shone brightly on Thursday night in their final game of the season. The Smurfs (aka Whangaparaoa Primary) team were a formidable force and they certainly made our Stars work hard on defence.  Unfortunately it was not a fairytale ending to the season for the Stars as they did not come away with the win, however the smiles on their faces proved that they had themselves a 'smurfing' good time!  A HUGE thank you to Mrs White, Mrs Clark and the four College Student Coaches - Amelia Paxton, Summer Wihone, Lauren Ovenden and Arwen Hulsbosch - for their time and dedication to this team.  We all appreciate your effort and support and quite honestly, we couldn't do it without you!  To those Year 6 students who will play netball in another team next year, we wish you every success and hope to see all of our Year 5's back for another fabulous netball season in 2018!

NETBALL - WENTWORTH STARS - 28 AUGUST 2017

Our Wentworth Stars sparkled brightly when they faced Gulf Harbour on Thursday night.  A dominant defensive game by all of the Stars kept the opposition scoreless for the entire game.  Tight one-on-one marking led to some exceptional intercepts which were quickly converted by our shooters.  We won 10-0.  Our Player of the Day certificates were awarded to Kiera Jordan and Rosa Clark for combining well in the shooting circle and sinking some tremendous goals.  A great game girls!
Keep practising your shooting at lunchtimes and at home.  You never know when you may have to step up and play a shooting position.
Netball trainings will be at lunchtime on Mondays.  Please bring your PE kit and netball shoes to train in. Thank you!

FLIPPA BALL - YEARS 5 & 6 - 21 AUGUST 2017

We had some players away which meant a bit of positional changes for the team. Nevertheless the team played like a well-oiled machine. The strikers communicated well and the defenders completely closed out the opposition. We won 11-0. Players of the Day were Charlotte Sancto-Jones for swimming with the ball and creating space for the other strikers and Ben Oliver for his defensive work and accurate throwing. Thanks again to James Nathan for standing in as goal keeper.

FLIPPA BALL - YEARS 3 & 4 - MARLINS - 21 AUGUST 2017

The Marlins had another good game on Sunday. Everyone stuck to their positions well and knew what they had to do. The strikers were really good at getting straight up to their positions and staying there to take multiple shots at goal. The defenders did an awesome job at pressuring the opposition to make mistakes by staying nice and close to them, making the opposition walk backwards further from the goal. We won 8-0 and Player of the Day went to Elijah for sticking to his player and constantly stealing the ball back. Well done everyone.

FLIPPA BALL - YEARS 5 & 6 - 14 AUGUST 2017

This week we changed our game plan slightly and had one striker in position.  While the theory was good it did result in losing some fluidity among the strikers, but they were still able to execute well. The defenders had an excellent game and were able to chase down the opposition and make it difficult for them to shoot a goal. We ended up winning 6-0 and Player of the day was Amelie Che for outstanding defensive work.

FLIPPA BALL - YEARS 3 & 4 MARLINS - 14 AUGUST 2017

The Marlins had to play a Years 5&6 team this week which was tough but everyone picked up their game and played so well to then come away with a win! The strikers stuck to their positions by the posts and never missed a chance to shoot for goal. The defenders worked really hard, stopping the opposition from getting many chances at shooting by keeping them under constant pressure. The defenders wouldn't give up and kept fighting to get the ball off the opposition. We won 5-3 and Player of the Day went to Amy Akehurst for her amazing defensive skills and stealing the ball from the opposition every time she could.
