Despite a low turnout, Team Sirius did phenomenally well fending off two strong teams fielded by Kingswood Academy at the under 16 Hull Schools Goalball Championships, to take the top spot this evening.
The first game between Kingswood A and Kingswood B ended in a two all draw. It was then Team Sirius’ turn to face Kingswood A. A steadfast defence provided by Luke Carter and Rachel Featherstone and the unstoppable arm of Aron Nelligan saw Team Sirius cruise to a comfortable 4-2 victory.
Next came the crucial final game. Another exceptional performance from Aron, Luke and Rachel, who managed to hold a very strong Kingswood B to 1-1 draw, a performance that was enough to take the overall victory.
If you see Aron Nelligan, Luke Carter or Rachel Featherstone around the academy please give them a massive well done for not only winning the competition but for there impeccable representation of Sirius Academy.
A big thank you also goes to Mr Basile for providing transport and support.
