Success for our Young Footballers.

Report by James Maclennan, E7

A few months ago, the school took part in the Lewis Soccer 7s qualifier and got through to the next round.  Last week we went to Tarbert to play. the Western Isles qualifier.

Like last year, the winner would go to Dundee. We played against Daliburgh, Sir E Scott and Stornoway Primary. On the way, the roads were bumpy and the nerves were kicking in but that did not stop us playing our very best!

We played straight away against Daliburgh and we won 3-0, which was a relief.  Next up was Sir E Scott and we won by an impressive 6-0. Then our nerves kicked in.  We were in the final against Stornoway Primary. Stornoway struck first with a good goal. Our heads were full of negativity and we thought there was no way back… until we reminded ourselves of our success last year. We had been losing against Stornoway Primary but managed to win in the end.

After our team talk, Stevie Mutch went on a superb solo run and scored a fantastic goal. We had the momentum and that secured us the winning goal – although Stornoway scored it!  Stevie had crossed the ball into the goal mouth which was then accidentally converted in by the opposing team.

The final score was 2-1 to us. So we are on our way to Dundee on the 26th of March again and we cannot wait!

 

TSB Sponsorship

Sgoil a’ Bhac recently received a sponsorship contribution of £165.60 from TSB towards our travel costs for the North of Scotland Soccer Sevens tournament our team participated in last term. Our team was representing the Western Isles in this national event, which was held in Dundee. As main sponsors of the competition, the TSB provided financial support to the participating schools to help with the expense of travel.17302_tsb_back-school_john-maclean-photographyImage courtesy of John Maclean Photography

P2 and P3 ‘Fun Fours’ Football

Some of our P2 and P3 pupils took part in a special football festival for Lewis schools today. It was organised by the Council’s Sport Development and Active Schools teams. This festival aimed to enhance children’s ability to run, throw, jump and kick the ball and to develop balance and co-ordination through playing four-a-side football games. All our pupils did really well and enjoyed their day. Thank you to Mrs Graham (G1-3), Mr Macdonald (Janitor) and Mrs Macdonald (Parent) for escorting the pupils to this event.

Soccer Sevens 2014 – Dundee

Our boys who took part in the North of Scotland Soccer 7s finals in Dundee have arrived home safely. They were all praised throughout their trip They qualified for this prestigious competition by winning the local heats in Stornoway against Lewis and Harris schools earlier in the year.

In the finals they played against nine other teams from Inverness, Aberdeen, Perth, Dundee and Skye. The standard in the competition was very high and the games were tough but the boys tried their best throughout. They won two of their games and drew another two but lost five games by a small margin. Their wins included a 2-0 victory over nearest rivals Portree.

The team, James Maclennan, Euan Anderson, Lee Maclean, Hector Macdonald, Steven Mutch, David Anderson, Ross Maciver, Calum Maclennan and Andrew Macdonald, were described as being a credit to the school and the community for their exemplary behaviour, positive attitude and commitment throughout their trip and the eight games they played.

We would like to thank Mr Dano Macdonald, Mrs Lena Maclennan and Mrs Chrisell Macleod for escorting the team. We’d like to also thank Dano for training and preparing the team for the competition in recent weeks. Thanks as well to the parents of the boys who supported us with fundraising and organising the trip. Well Done boys!
