Floorball - Tuesday 25th September 2018
Year 6 and below cricket at Cirencester Cricket Club
A wonderful team effort for the Federation Girls team finishing second in our group and narrowly missing out on a semi final place by 20 runs. Well done to all involved.
23.1.2018 Floorball Report
The Cotswold Floorball League's 'A' Team competition is down to the last six. On 6th March holders Dormer House and North Cotswold Federation will join Ilmington, St Catharines, Temple Guiting and St James & Ebrington in the final set of play off matches. The top two teams at that stage will contest the final, later in the year.
St Davids started the day in pole position with two wins counting from earlier matches. They played the Moreton derby against Dormer House winning with a single strike by Joe Winder from a free hit. Unfortunately, they were caught cold by Sedgeberrow, who also won by a single Tom Crawford goal. St Davids had a power play in the final minutes, but were kept out by fine defensive play from goalkeeper Zak Freeman and his backs. NCSF also forced a win against St Davids, courtesy of two Jamie Fowler goals.
NCSF had a great evening with three more wins to top the play off table. They opened the scoring against Sedgeberrow when Jacob Brewerton tucked the ball home from a melee in front of goal. The Federation almost immediately lost a player to the sin bin, allowing Crawford to level. Brewerton, Fowler and Brewerton again sealed the 4-1 victory. This fine form continued against Blockley, Noah Custard's opener being followed by Brewerton's brace in a 3-0 win. Not even two losses to the sin bin could prevent the win. Mickleton were the one team which caused NCSF some trouble. Tilly Walker did some great work, hitting the post and having shots save, which allowed Sam Meddins-Fawden to put Mickleton ahead on the rebound. NCSF knew that attacking straight from the face off was a good time to equalise and did so admirably through Noah Custard. Custard then made it 2-1 and Brewerton enhanced his tally to make it 3-1 at the final whistle.
Blockley earned a hard won 1-0 victory against Mickleton, Ebony Dean-Brown giving them the early lead. Mickleton lessened their chances when two players were sent to the penalty box, yet finished the game stronger and were only denied a point by Andre Jeffrey' fine last second save. Mickleton did salvage pride when they defeated Sedgeberrow 2-0, Adam Bird and Tilly Walker the scorers.
These results left the holders, Dormer House, in danger of losing their title, but they rallied with three wins. Finlay Holland-Bird scored both goals in a 2-0 against Sedgeberrow. Maisie Smith scored the only goal against Blockley after another mad flurry in the goal mouth. Blockley nearly levelled when fine work by Dean-Brown gifted Max Bolam an almost open goal, only for Will Droy to somehow save the shot. Holland-Bird's hat trick laid the foundations for victory against Mickleton, Maisie Smith adding the fourth before Walker pulled back a consolation for Mickleton.
The last two sets of play offs leave 7th to 14th places decided as follows:
7th St Davids
11th Bourton on the Water
13th St Marys
Sedgeberrow, the only first school in the league, only just avoided being regarded as too good to defend their 'B' Team title.
NCSF 2-0 St Davids
NCSF 4-1 Sedgeberrow
NCSF 3-0 Blockley
NCSF 3-1 Mickleton
Dormer House 0-1 St Davids
Dormer House 2-0 Sedgeberrow
Dormer House 1-0 Blockley
Dormer House 4-1 Mickleton
Blockley 1-0 Mickleton
Mickleton 2-0 Sedgeberrow
St Davids 0-1 Sedgeberrow
Next week, 30th January 2018, Blockley, St James & Ebrington C, Dormer House, Sedgeberrow, Ilmington and Temple Guiting meet in the next round of 'B' Team play offs.

Four children from the Longborough and Cold Aston represented the NCSF at the Intermediate Gymnastics competition this month. What a delight it was to see them perform flowing floor moves and energetic vault jumps. All four girls made us very proud and we were delighted that they entered! Well done!
