TGS Win Rugby Tournament

Yesterday The Gordon Schools travelled to Aberdeen to compete in a rugby tournament against Westhill and Elgin. A solid team of .. boys travelled to the.. pitches and gave it their all.

TGS’S first match was against Westhill, the boys managed to pull of a great result ending in a 18-4 victory.

We asked Martin, a key player from yesterdays team how he thought the team and himself played in the first match, “I expected Westhill to be pretty hard because our squad is a union team and their  used to playing league. I think I played alright for not playing rugby league ever in my life and its fun but I think I could of done a little better.”

The team made it in to the final in which they played against Turriff,  it was a close game for the first half the score 4-4 but in the second half Turriff couldn’t contain TGS as they cruised to 32-4 win.

Coach A. Sutcliffe was very impressed with the teams performance throughout the day and said it was good team performance although he did mention Martin, Lewis, Roddy and Yanick as being stand out players.
