BSCS Yr 9 Boys Rugby Team through to semi-finalsFebruary 4th, 2016
The Year 9 boys’ rugby team at Bradley Stoke Community School has beaten Chew Valley School in the quarter finals of the Super 8s competition to progress to the semi-final stage for the first time in the school’s history!
It was a thrilling 37-17 victory against formidable opponents, which shows just how strong the current BSCS Year 9 team is. Captained admirably by Scott Barrowman and supported by vice-captain Archie Barber, TEAM BSCS set about scoring 17 unanswered points in the first half with the forwards dominating the breakdown on a boggy pitch. The team used their ‘pick and drive’ tactic to great effect with Alfie Bradley and Nick Fraser deciding the vital times to spread the ball to our speedy back line.
Chew Valley fought back in the second half to bring the score back to 17-12 and the boys found themselves under serious pressure. Both teams traded points until BSCS finally ran away with it due to a higher level of physical conditioning and desire bringing us out on top!
Nick Lovelace was named as man of the match with an all-action, try-scoring performance. The team is now in the semi-finals (last four!) from all schools in South Gloucestershire, Bristol, BANES and North Somerset.Tags: BSCS, rugby Back to news
