BASKETBALL - COMETS - 13 MARCH 2017

Our Comets team are going from strength to strength each week.  With a draw for their first game and two subsequent wins, they are proving to be a real threat in this competition.  A special mention goes to Josh Hill for committing himself fully on attack resulting in a nasty fall.  A very brave effort Josh!  Player of the Day was Rory Brabant.  Excellent work rushing the ball on defence Rory, and great positioning on attack.  You ran your heart out!  Great work.  See you all at Sunday morning training.

MINBALL - ASTEROIDS - 13 MARCH 2017

Our newly formed girls team are continuing to show significant improvement with every game!  Whilst the scoreboard flattered the opposition, the girls were tenacious, accurate in their passing and dogged in defence.  Great effort by the entire team this week girls.  Congratulations on working hard to play together as a team.  Our Player of the Day went to BethanySmith for excellent positioning on court, fierce defence and a fabulous goal!  Keep it up Bethany!

MINIBALL - ROCKETS - 13 MARCH 2017

After last week’s ripper game, the Wentworth Rockets found it a bit harder this week to keep up the amazing stunt shots, suffering a 9-4 loss.
Everyone on the team put in a great effort however, and every face was glowing at the end of the match. It is great to see how confident our players are becoming in taking possession of the ball. Player of the day this week was Xavier Melhop, for his super-fast footwork and his amazing ability to move quickly to whichever area of the court he was needed on. Well done, Xavier!

BASKETBALL - COMETS - 6 MARCH 2017

This week was a thrilling, nail biting match for the Comets. Some of the parents will have lost their voices!  It looked as though both teams were going to struggle to score, however the Comets pulled out some fantastic tricks (and some amazing teamwork) to win 7-4 at full time. It was great to see how the Comets all pulled together and it was a real treat to see some fantastic passing that resulted in goals. Our Player of the Day this week was Josh Hill. Well done, Josh!  

MINIBALL- ASTEROIDS - 6 MARCH 2017

It was a tough day on court for our newly formed Asteroids team.  All agreed that it was a much improved performance which fills us with excitement and anticipation for the season ahead.  Kingsway were a slick opposition and certainly gave us all some food for thought in terms of what we need to do on court next week. Our Player of the Day was Annabelle Duncan for finding excellent positioning on defence and attack, for her great listening skills, and for making herself available to intercept rebounds.  Great work Annabelle!

MINIBALL - ROCKETS - 6 MARCH 2017

It was great to see how well the Rockets played together this week- what super teamwork!  Amy was a super shooter, and everyone in the team made a huge effort to keep the pressure on, resulting in an impressive win of 8-1.  Player of the day this week was Daniel Chen who displayed amazing defence skills. Well done, Daniel!

BASKETBALL - COMETS - 27 FEBRUARY 2017

Wentworth Comets
Congratulations on an exciting start to the 2017 basketball season, Wentworth Comets.  This tight grading match finished with a draw!  Player of the Day went to Austin McAlpine for being everywhere he needed to be for the whole game.
Training for this team will be held in the school gym on Sunday morning at 9am. Thank you to Mr Hill for his support and the significant time he dedicates to our Comets.  This is shaping up to be a fabulous and nail-biting season!

MINIBALL - ASTEROIDS - 27 FEBRUARY 2017

It was a tough grading game for our newly formed Wentworth Asteroids team.  Currently this is the first ever Wentworth girls mini-ball team.  Even though our Asteroids faced a significant loss they certainly showed some exciting potential.  With more time together they are sure to show their skills and flair.  Charlotte Sancto-Jones received Player of the Day for her tenacious defence.  Despite being hurt, Charlotte played on and showed steely determination.  Well done Charlotte!  The purpose of the formation of this team is based on the knowledge that many of these girls will leave mini-ball in Terms 2 and 3 to play netball.  Those who continue during these terms will make an easy transition into the Wentworth Comets team.

MINIBALL - ROCKETS - 27 FEBRUARY 2017

The Wentworth Rockets had a tight start to this year's miniball season. They were very well matched with the Whanga Warriors, and although the game looked as though it would be a draw, we were pipped at the post and the Rockets lost 6-5.
Again, this is a newly formed team, and I am sure that with more practise, and once they get used to working as a team, the Rockets will be a formidable force.
This week, EVERY player was player of the day - well done to all of you!

FLIPPABALL - YEARS 5&6 - 28 NOVEMBER 2016

We had a depleted team and needed to borrow two players to make up the numbers. There was a bit of experimentation that worked in the first half where the score was 2-2. Unfortunately the continued experimentation failed to work in the second half and we ended up losing 4-2 in a game I think we should have won. This week we had three Players of the Day;  Rory Brabant and Charlotte Sancto-Jones for their staunch defence and Isabella Ovenden for her passing and setting up goals on attack.

MINBALL - ASTEROIDS - 28 NOVEMBER 2016

The Asteroids showed they are a team with passion in another very fast and physical game. The opposition had size over us again but the Asteroids didn't let this discourage them. They passed well and had plenty of opportunities under the basket. However, the ball just wouldn't drop in the basket for us. The final score was 8-1 with Ben Rist scoring with 4 seconds left on the clock. Player of the Day went to Jessica Rensen for her diligent defensive play. Great game, team!

MINIBALL - COMETS - 28 NOVEMBER 2016

It was a DRAW, 3-3!  The game was so exciting that most of the side-line spectators were exhausted at full time as we certainly felt we were part of a phenomenal match up.  Stanmore Bay Spitfires got the game off to a flying start with a long range goal that impressed us all.  However our Comets gelled beautifully as a team and their slick passing, quick thinking and excellent defence kept them pushing their opposition for the entire game.  In the dying seconds of the match, Rory made an excellent save which stopped the Spitfires from scoring and we had a chance to go ahead on the scoreboard.  Unfortunately time was not on our side and we had to settle for a well-earned draw.  Teamwork, cohesive attack and backing each other up on defence ensured that the whole team received Players of the Day.  Congratulations to each of you – an impressive game at the end of a tough season.  Well done!

BASKETBALL - HORNETS - 28 NOVEMBER 2016

It was a clash of the fierce beasts last week as the darting, deadly Hornets took on the might of the springing, sleek Silverdale Tigers. In a game full of twists and turns, both teams played to their strengths but it was the Tigers who emerged the victors, managing to swat the Hornets with their accuracy and shooting skills. Jared Davies was our Player of the Day for his energy and positive attack throughout the game.

SUMMER SOCCER - 14 NOVEMBER 2016

Summer Soccer Results
It is always good to hear from excited children, parents and managers just how well all our children are playing. More importantly, the sporting attitudes and enthusiasm of our students (even when matches go against us) is outstanding.
Years 1&2 Wentworth Wonders lost their game against Dairy Flat Captains but held Red Beach Mix to a 1-1 draw. Player of the Day was Ethan Jordan.
Years 3&4 Wentworth Wildcats lost both matches against Orewa Utd and RB Falcons but Jared did manage to get onto the score sheet! Player of the Day was Ananda Krageloh.
