The U13 Dodgeball competition took part here at Sirius Academy West last night. Numerous teams were entered and in some cases 3 teams from individual Schools. We entered two year 7 teams to compete against mixed teams of 7s and 8’s from other Schools.
However, this didn’t put our boys off as they came prepared for action! Overall the boys played in 6 consecutive games and won them all convincingly to be entered into the premiership final against St Marys A team. The build up was huge and so were the Marys players! The lads didn’t fear, and a smooth team talk from the Dodgeball coach, was inspirational enough to remind them of the 5 D’s; Dodge, Duck, Dip, Dive and Dodge.
The final was out of 5 two minute games. And under all doubt against a strong year 8 side, the Sirius lads managed to complete the 5th round in style, by hitting all of the St Marys lads to take their full team out before the final whistle. A huge cheer went up and the lads celebrated in style!
They are now through to the regional dodgeball championships to compete for their place on the podium.
Well done to all of the lads who took part, and Alex Sherwood for giving us the opportunity to go out and smash it!
