Sports Report, November 2016

Interhouse Sport
Last half term every student in years 7, 8 and 9 was involved in either football or netball matches, competing for vital early points towards the end of year, much awaited, Sports Cup. The competition was played over three days of stunning sunshine at Isca Academy in a great spirit, well done to all who took part. We look forward to interhouse mixed tag rugby on Friday 25th November - Sports Captains are collecting team names now.
 
Girls Football is developing fast at Isca Academy
The Year 7 girl have taken Mid & East Devon by storm at a tournament consisting of 8 schools. The Isca girls produced an exceptional performance winning 6 and drawing 1, only conceding 1 goal in 7 games,  to win the tournament and progress through to the County Cup Finals to be played in Paignton after Christmas. Paige D was outstanding with Hazel and Eden also key players amongst the rest of the squad. An amazing accomplishment so early in the school year for our Year 7 Girls, well done.
 
More new girls, a mixture of novice and some more experienced players, continue to arrive at club each week with now a regular 25 training after school on Wednesdays. The girls have worked very hard at training and have already had several fixtures progressing through the early rounds of the National Cup. A mixed Year 7 and 8 Isca Academy team hosted a practised Year 8 Ivybridge side. The girls, who are improving on a weekly basis started brilliantly with Paige D skilfully dribbling through the Ivybridge side. Although in the end the more experienced team won on the day, we are very excited with the capability of this group of girls – watch this space.
 
The Year 9 Girls were also out in action v Bodmin College, a team that progressed to the later stages in last year’s National Cup. A fantastic performance from Teoni, Katlin, Meaghan and Caitlyn helped guide the newer Isca players against the more developed Bodmin team. The girls, who eventually lost the game, played in a great spirit and display of sportsmanship and will be back in action at tournament later in the month.
 
Year 9 Boys have yet to find their feet this season
After a successful win in both the National Cup and the Small Schools Cup, the Year 9 boys drew tough fixtures in the second round games playing both Torquay School and Torquay Boys Grammar, losing 2-1 to both in nail-biting games. The team welcome back vice-captain back Cameron who has recovered from a foot injury as well as George, also injured, and will now focus on both the East Devon Cup and Devon Cup to come.
 
The Year 9 B Team have also be in action, travelling to Ivybridge College last week in what was also a closely  contested game. Kieran, later named Player of the Match, was outstanding opening the B Team account with a brilliant goal from outside the box. Ivybridge fought back to eventually win 4-3. A performance to be proud of from all involved.
 
Year 11 Football
The year 11’s have been in action several times already this term in both the National and East Devon Cup. On Monday we travelled to Truro to play a round 3 game of the national cup. The Truro side outplayed the Isca team on this occasion with the Isca boys second half performance, although much improved on the first half, left with too much to do.
 
West Exe, a strong side at Year 11 level also won in our first game of 3 in the East Devon Cup initial pool rounds. We look forward to playing Clyst Vale and St Peter, also within our pool.
 
Year 7 Netball
Year 7 girls netball played St James recently and won, full report in the next edition
