Rugby

12 Teams were in action with old rivals KES Southampton this week. The MCS brand of rugby was very much alive in a 52-32 victory for the 1st XV. Some individual brilliance, from Captain Barney Carey, alongside some audacious offloads that we have become accustomed to from Laird and Cunningham. It was a beautiful fast-paced, high-skilled game - with some optional tackling from both sides!

The U13A continued their strong performances, coming out on top of a one-score match. The U16A produced a fine display to seal a much-needed victory, and Mr Cullen and the mighty U15B’s were unfortunate not to get more from a dazzling performance!

Our boys are playing some fine rugby! Well done to all.


Girls Hockey

Hot on the heels of a strong performance at the county tournament, the girls 2s beat Cokethorpe. The girls defended strongly and played well, and went ahead with a great goal from Ottilie Carter. In the second half Rosie Anthony made it two from a crisp short corner strike. Cokethorpe came back strong, making the final score 2-1 to MCS.

Congratulations to the girls 3rd hockey team, captained with great spirit by Emily Shelley, who had their best game so far against Cokethorpe 3s. Although the eventual result was a loss, Bailey De Koker scored the team's first goal of the season, while Apsara Shah was awarded MVP for her excellent saves in goal. Special mention also goes to Alice Kupce for her tireless effort in midfield, but well done to the whole team for their progress, positivity and enthusiasm.

Badminton

A great double result this week for our 1st and 2nd badminton teams defeating Stowe with an aggregate of 22-9. A big weekend ahead vs Bromsgrove.

Sailing

3 MCS boats made it to Weymouth for the Feva champs this weekend. Saturday was light winds Daniel Larsen and George Aldridge did very well getting some mid fleet results against a very strong fleet of 42 boats from all over the UK.

Vedant Nirmal and Leo Brazier struggled in the first race dealing with the conditions but showed improvements for the following races as did Mathis Ivanovic and James Fuller who manage 30th place in the last race of the day.

Sunday was a lot windier, and our sailors struggled with the conditions, they all managed to get a finish in the first race of the day but where unable to complete the 2nd. A lot learned.

Team of the week is the U16A rugby team for their 43-24 win against KES Southampton.
