On Monday 3rd April, Fallings Park tag rugby team played in the city finals at Wolverhampton Rugby Club. It was the 2nd tournament of the year, following on from the Moreton sub-city championships which Fallings Park won, meaning they were the local area champions.
The draw was a tough one: we were against Northwood Park and St. Stephens, with only the winners advancing to the semi-finals. However, we managed to beat both teams twice, scoring some incredible tries with exciting solo runs and patient consecutive passes. This meant we progressed from the group, winning all 4 group games.
In the quarter finals, we faced Uplands. This was another difficult match, but the team advanced again, thanks to some terrific defending and amazing attacking skills. The semi-finals pitted us against St. Barts, a team we had faced previously and drawn against at Moreton. However, they were no match for us this time, and we were able to defeat them 5-2 to progress to the final.
Now, it was time. Time for us to go that one final step. Runners up last year, we wanted to win it this year. Bhylls Acre were the opponents, and it was the toughest match, as expected. 4-4 was the final score, meaning it went to extra time and golden try. After a few anxious minutes, finally Megan Cox was able to touch the ball down for the winning try! 5-4 to Fallings Park and a 4th city title was ours!
Gold medals were received by all, and an opportunity to represent Wolverhampton at the Black Country Games on June 23rd.
What a day it was! Well done to all who played.
Players: Selwyn, Tawanda, Remay, Tayo, Darvan, Chris, Megan, Tia, Tristan, Ai’isah.
On Wednesday 5th April Fallings Park football team took part in the City finals of the 5 a-side tournament. The previous week, they had qualified by winning all of their group games without conceding a goal.
The first match was against Warstones Primary. After some crunching tackles and fabulous goals, Fallings Park emerged victorious. We also managed to win our second match versus Springvale Primary, although not without a scare. A late goal was disallowed, much to our relief. We were playing some marvellous, smooth possession football and showing great teamwork Furthermore, great sportsmanship was shown by everybody involved: all players shook hands at the end of each game.
Finally, the last group game was against Springdale Primary. Fallings Park swiftly took the lead and then added another to lead 2-0. However, Springdale pulled one back and nearly equalised, but we held on to win 2-1 and advance to the semi-finals.
The semi-final was against Uplands, who tried their best to take the game to Fallings Park, but it was no use; Fallings Park were too strong and ran out 3-0 winners.
The final was against a really talented Elston Hall team, a well-known opponent from earlier in the season. Despite trying our best to get revenge, and a very close match, they proved slightly too strong in front of goal and defeated us 2-0. This meant we were runners-up in the whole of the city.
Amazing teamwork boys! Well done, better luck next year!
