Quad kids – last Wednesday some Year 5 and 6 children participated in a range of athletic events. They did really well in the heat, coming third overall.

On Friday Shalfleet took a team to the island Quad Kids athletics event. Having taken part in the Cowes version of the competition, the children knew what to expect and were hopeful of doing well. As before the children all had to run 400m and sprint 50m, as well as complete a standing long jump and a vortex throw. The team gave their all against some very tough opponents and at the end had a nervous wait to hear the results. As the results came in Shalfleet wasn’t called until the final 3, we had got a medal, and amazingly it turned out to be a gold one! A great reward for a fantastic effort by all of our team. 
Team. Eden, Alice, Molly, Maisie, Lucas, Harvey, Sonny, Oliver

Y5 Cricket
Last Friday despite the rain and the festival Year 5 headed off for their first cricket match. Their captain – Alex – was in fine spirit was in longing to start the game but had to wait for Newport to finish playing Arreton. 
With our first two in to bat, Bertie and Max, our players hit some good shots and started off well, however Arreton played exceptionally well and bowled us some tricky fast balls! We lost our first game but held our heads up high.
Our next game was against Newport. Our Captain decided the pairings again and off we went. Again we struck some good shots, our bowling picked up and we scored well, but we were narrowly beaten by Newport!
It was our first cricket match, after a night spent at school with the Space Camp. We didn’t win but we did ourselves proud and had fun!

This year, the football teams at Shalfleet School have had a very successful year. Both of the U9 teams were in their first year of playing together, with both of them reaching the finals and winning their respective games to be crowned winners of the first ever U9 Rural Competitions. The matches were against Brighstone (Girls League) and Wroxall (Open League).

The U11 Girls team also experienced a huge success, reaching the finals after their group had to play a play-off to ascertain who would go through to the finals. Their final against Yarmouth was a nail-biting one, with Shalfleet winning the game until the final minutes of the match, when Yarmouth scored to equalise, taking them to extra time. Again, the two teams battled it out, with both playing exceptionally well. In the dying minutes of the game though, it was Yarmouth who scored and went on to be crowned winners.

Well done Shalfleet!

Mrs Blackley would like to say a special thank you to Mrs Blackburn and Mr Joe McCormack for all their support and effort in coaching the children with their sport.

Under 9 rural league final

In atrocious conditions Shalfleet took to the field at Queensgate to take on Wroxall in the U9 rural cup final. The boys were not deterred by the weather and got off to a fantastic start when Oliver scored after some good passing by Alfie and Ollie. Wroxall attacked but Will and Sam defended well in very slippery conditions, and when they did get through, Sonny was there to tidy up. More good forward play by Ollie and Lucas put Oliver away to make 2-0 and shortly afterwards a great run and finish by Harvey made it 3. Wroxall didn’t give up and kept attacking, but Toby made some great blocks to keep them at bay and there was just enough time for Alfie to fire a 4th goal into the top corner.
HT 4-0
A quick turn around and Shalfleet started in the ascendancy again, Harvey scoring his second goal, and then an unfortunate own goal after Wroxall put through their own net, under pressure from Alex after a corner from Harvey. To their credit Wroxall never gave up and scored an excellent consolation when their forward lifted the ball over Sonny after being sent clear after some good passing. But it wasn’t enough and the final whistle sounded to ensure an emphatic Shalfleet, and shortly afterwards Lucas lifted the trophy to the delight of the boys and supporters.
FT 6-1

Massive congratulations to the boys who have been excellent since the first game, and deserve their trophy. The potential to improve is there and if they listen and work hard they will be a force to be reckoned with when they come back together in year 5/6. Also a huge thanks to the parents for their unwavering support this year, especially last night as it wasn’t nice to be out in the elements for the game!

Team. Sonny, Sam, Will, Toby, Lucas, Harvey, Ollie, Oliver, Alfie, Alex

Under 11’s Football

On Thursday afternoon our under 11 team took on Arreton in the semi final of the rural cup. We knew Arreton would be a tough opponent, and we would need to work hard and have a bit of luck on our side. Unfortunately luck was to prove at a premium. Almost straight from the kick off a clearance from Arreton flew into the top corner, giving Leo no chance. Not long after a long clearance from the goalkeeper bounced into the net. However, we kept our heads and put Arreton under pressure, creating a few chances but not finding the net. In the second half Arreton showed their skills by scoring a great team goal. They added another after another huge kick from their keeper. To our credit we kept battling and finally got the goal we deserved when Joe tucked away a chance from a corner. Arreton were a very strong side and unfortunately we couldn’t quite match them, but everyone gave it their best shot.
Team. Leo, Caelen, Joe, Jess, Riley, JJ, Bertie, Sam, Oliver, Peter

Under 9’s Football

On Friday afternoon Shalfleet under 9’s took on Godshill in the semi final of the rural cup. After a cagey opening to the game, it suddenly came to life when Harvey smashed the ball into the top corner from 25 yards out, giving the Godshill keeper no chance. This settled down our team, and not long after that Harvey produced a carbon copy of his goal to make it 2-0. The boys then settled down and started to pass well, Oliver and Lucas in particular looking to make good passes. This lead to a third goal just before half time when Ollie finished off a good team move. Godshill were finding chances hard to come by, thanks to good defensive play by Will, Sam and Lucas and at half time we had a very commanding 3-0 lead. The second half was much the same, Alex and Toby coming close to scoring, but when the fourth goal did come it was Ollie again with a close range finish. Godshill never gave up and it took an excellent save from Sonny, tipping over a fierce free kick to maintain our clean sheet. The game finished 4-0. The final will be played on Thursday April 4th, with a 1520 kick off at Queensgate. Well done boys.
Team. Sonny, William, Sam, Ollie, Oliver, Lucas, Harvey, Toby, Alex
