The Walsh Sports Cup for Year 6 Tag Rugby League

 6 teams from 5 local primary schools entered – BSCA A, BSCA B, Red Lane, Moorgate and Blackshaw.

 The teams were split into 2 groups of 3 - Group 1  - BSCA A, SS Osmund and Andrew, Moorgate  and  Group 2  - Red Lane, Blackshaw, BSCA B.

 After the group stages both BSCA A and Red Lane were eliminated. They tied for 5th place after drawing 1-1 in the 5th/6th place match

 So to the semi-finals – winners of Group 1 SS Osmund and Andrews faced Group 2 runners up BSCA B. It was a single try in extra time from Alfie Stubbs of BSCA  B that separated the teams

 The other semi-final was even closer having gone through extra time scoreless, teams were reduced from 7 to 5 under the golden try rule. It was Riley Entwisle of Moorgate who sneaked in at the corner to book Moorgate’s passage into the final

 The Final – Moorgate  v  BSCA B   both group runners up made it to the final, a great achievement for Moorgate fielding an all year 5 team. BSCA B quickly took control with 2 tries from Alfie Stubbs and Taylor Gallagher and though Moorgate battled hard it was BSCA B who were always in control. A stunning individual try from Riley Entwistle was quite a consolation for Moorgate and a personal best for him.

Congratulations to BSCA B
