House hockey aside, this week was all about one match. The 1st XI faced Sir William Borlase’s in the National Cup Semi Final. Having played them earlier in the term, both teams knew it was going to be a tight game. Some cup nerves also played a part and a cagey opening half meant the game was tied 0-0 at half time.

The team slowly grew into the game and were starting to be the dominant side, but they still couldn’t break the deadlock. Finally, the ball was coolly put on target by Jamie Rawal, with James Coles doing his best poaching job on the back post. 1-0 to MCS. The team continued with the same intensity and we finally sealed the game with a second goal through a great breakaway attack, calmly finished by Alex Laird.

The team now face Bradfield in the National Final at Lee Valley, the home of GB hockey, on Wednesday 27th April.

Rugby 7’s

Congratulations to the U12’s, U13’s and U15’s who were in action in the final tournaments of the term last week at The King's School in Worcester. The U12’s and the U13’s played well, the U15’s went further in the tournament but unfortunately lost in the final of the plate to St Peter’s.

Netball

There were another two good games of Netball this week, against very equal sides from St Helen’s and St Katherine’s. The girls played well, displaying how well they have developed as a squad this season, with the 1st VI narrowly losing 13-9.


Sailing

The MCS end of term regatta happened on Saturday, MCS sailors were joined by sailors from Abingdon school. The wind was very shifty and gusty, which helped the Fireflies who had a very close battle - Ed White Belcher crewed by Davey Chataway mastered the conditions and took 3 firsts and a 3rd to win overall. Ben Simmons and Adi took 2nd place whilst Charlie Merryweather, crewed by Thomas Simpson, took third place.

Emma Ramm was top laser beating all the sailors from Abingdon and Marcus Smith crewed by Barnaby Turner took top place in the Fevas.

Team of the week is of course the Boys Hockey 1st XI for qualifying for the National Final - well done to Mr Stone and Mr Williams for coaching and organising them so well.
