Year 5&6 Basketball Competition
On Thursday 25th January, Upton-by-Chester High School hosted the Year 5&6 Basketball Competition. It was an amazing event with 20 teams from 18 schools and involving 150 children.
There were four pools of competition, with the winning schools progressing to the semi finals. Here Christleton beat Hoole in a very close game 1:0, and Waverton beat Saughall 3:0 in a very tense and well fought game.
Third and fourth place play offs resulted in Hoole beating Saughall 2:0.
The final was a repeat of last year’s teams with Waverton playing Christleton (pictured bottom). A very close match resulted in extra time, where Waverton scored the winning goal and will now represent Chester at the Level 3 School Games.
A huge thank you to the four referees from Upton-by-Chester High School who ran all the games in such a professional and fair way. Thank you also to the school for hosting the event.
Well done to all the schools who took part and good luck to Waverton in the county final!.
