BASKETBALL - COMETS - 30 OCTOBER 2017

COMETS
This week was also a hard game for the Comets, being beaten by quite a large margin by the Whangaparaoa Breakers. Again, it was the first week of the term, so it is good to know that the only way is up!
The Comets have no subs this term, so it really is going to be a battle of the fittest, however I know that last term’s champion team will rise to the challenge and give it everything they have got to pull themselves back into the game.
Player of the Day this week was Ben Oliver. Well done, Ben!

BASKETBALL - ASTEROIDS - 30 OCTOBER 2017

ASTEROIDS
This week was a hard game for the Asteroids. Although it was only our first week, we were a player short, and needed a substitute, thanks goes to Rosa Clark, for stepping in.
Sadly we were outplayed by Stanmore Bay- a team that had played together for a long time, were very tall and very fast. This is the first time the Asteroids have played together, and so it will take us a while to learn to play together well and look for each other’s strengths.
Player of the Day this week was Annie Duncan, who looked for gaps, called out for the ball and made an effort to pop up wherever she was needed. Well done, Annie.

MINIBALL - ROCKETS - 30 OCTOBER 2017

ROCKETS
The Rockets had a loss this week due to an own goal however everyone had a good start to the new term. Despite having her fingers in splints, Amy Akehurst managed to play and scored some goals.
Ben Rist was the Player of the Day this week for making a super effort in all areas during the whole game. Well done, Ben!

CONGRATULATIONS & SPORT ACHIEVEMENTS - 16 OCTOBER 2017

Sports Achievements & Congratulations

From the 22nd – 24th September, 48 teams aged 12 and under took part in the Olympic Hopefuls Tournament at the National Aquatic and Millennium Centres in Albany. Five Wentworth students were amongst the players, as part of the Hibiscus Coast Water polo Squads. Matthew Brabant, Poppy Sancto-Jones, Bridie Smith, Rory Brabant and Charlotte Sancto-Jones were all involved in three days of tough matches against experienced teams.
Both Matthew and Rory attacked relentlessly, scoring goals for their respective teams; Poppy was a force to be reckoned with, defeating players much bigger than herself.
Congratulations to all our Wentworth Water polo players for displaying superb skills and sportsmanship during the last U-12 tournament of the year.
Charlotte and Bridie were invaluable for their strength, determination and passing accuracy. The Hibiscus Coast teams did not manage to place in their divisions.
Although Bridie’s squad won most of its matches and was unlucky not to have come in the top three.

BASKETBALL - COMETS
Wow, Comets! 8 undefeated games have zoomed the Comets into a place in the grand finals, which has left the whole team buzzing with excitement!!!

MINIBALL - ROCKETS - 25 SEPTEMBER 2017

MINIBALL - ROCKETS
This week was a bit of a rough game for the Rockets.
They fought a hard, close game against the Swish, and it really was tough (and a bit confusing) as we had three Wentworth Players playing for the opposition! The final score was 4-3.
Once again, Wentworth players were reminded to pass the ball to players who are better positioned than they are. This will also help to avoid the opposition getting our players stuck in a corner bouncing the ball!
Every team member won Player of the Day this week, as it was just too hard for Mrs Oliver to choose one stand-out player.

FLIPPA BALL - YRS 3&4 MARLIN - YRS 5&6 WARRIORS - FINALS RESULTS - 18 SEPTEMBER 2017

Flippa Ball Results
Congratulations to the Years 3/4 Wentworth Marlin Flippa Ball team for placing first in the local Flippa Ball competition. It is worth noting that this team had not lost a game all season (being the last two terms) and this was despite competing against much larger schools. Well done!!
Also, congratulations to the Years 5/6 Wentworth Warriors Flippa Ball team, who also completed the last term undefeated, although they did draw their last game. This team is second overall. A great effort and well done to all the players.

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!
