Wednesday the 12th of October saw the annual Grove School Colts rugby tournament hosted on our home pitches at tear drop lakes.
Teams form Akeley Wood, BMS, Quinton House and Pitsford joined The Grove in a round robin event culminating in a final on the main pitch.
Each match lasted 15 minutes and some very close scores were recorded.
The Grove 2 Quinton 4
Akeley 7 Pitsford 0
Pitsford 0 BMS 8
The Grove 3 Akeley 4
Akeley 1 BMS 2
Quinton 4 Pitsford 1
The Grove 1 BMS 8
Akeley 1 Quinton 1
Quinton 0 BMS 5
The Grove 4 Pitsford 1
BMS 3 Akeley 0
We were delighted to be able to witness a final between the top two teams after the round robin event was completed. Akelely Wood played BMS in a 20 minute final. The game was a very good showpiece for schools’ rugby and BMS eventually came out winners 3 -0.
All teams performed well and some excellent skills were on display. Power house Damilola showed some great form ending the day as our top try scorer showing superb skill and determination. Further mentions to Alex Lee, Jeremy Matthews and Harry Dunning who played some of their best rugby for The Grove.
A massive thank you to all The Grove sports, support and teaching staff who helped organise an excellent event. We would also like thank all the parents who came and cheered us on all afternoon.
Mr Small and Mr Ellemore
