The girls just keep on WINNING!

The winning streak continues for our Year 7 girls who remain undefeated.  For the first time ever BCHS won the U13 school qualifier which will take them to the school games Thursday 22nd June 2017 at Cramlington Sporting club.

We beat our closest rivals Meadowdale and St Benet Biscop, leaving the deciding match to be against our very own Year 8 team; whoever won would be crowed champions of the Bedlington/Blyth sports partnership.

They are a very talented team but what makes them extra special is their hard work and their positive attitude towards each other.

Well done!  Everyone at BCHS is very proud of your achievements and wishes you well in the next tournament which takes place in November.

01.03.2016: Bedlington 0 – 0 Cramlington High

16.03.01.CramlingtonWell Done to all the girls today, it was a great first match.  For some of the girls it was the first time they have played 9V9 football and for  Daisy Wilson it was the first time she had ever played a competitive match.  We were the stronger team but seemed to struggle with the size of the pitch.

Erin White showed her expertise taking on her opponents with Ellie Dillion being composed on the ball and playing some great passes. Our defence was outstanding protecting our keeper who never touched the ball.

This was a tough match against a very strong and very organised team. Again we worked hard in midfield, Rhya Willis showing her class and Morgan Johnstone keeping the defence right but unfortunate we went 4-0 down in the first half.

Even though we were 4-0 down we still tried to pass the ball around and we did have a chance to score a goal.  Rosie Hurley made a fantastic save late on in the second half to prevent them from scoring again.

 


24.02.2016: Bedlington 3 – 5 Cramlington Learning Village

Cramlington start off on a strong foot, take command of the possession of the ball from the outset. BCHS defended well during the first 20 minutes of the game working hard when not in possession of the ball to attack their well organised passing. Unfortunately BCHS managed to concede their first goal after a back pass from our defence to Matthew Potts in goal, Matthew then played the ball out wide not seeing that their strikers were sitting very tightly on out back four defensive players. Our boys at BCHS gave them strong competition in midfield showing they were able to hold the ball and back tactical choices about their passing, ensuring they could also find sufficient space to gain some distance on the pitch. BCHS then conceded another goal as the CLV striker approached Matthew Potts in goal, he left his goal line coming out to defend off the CLV striker.
During the second half of the game BCHS players managed to find space on the pitch and pass the ball well keeping possession for sustained periods of time. With patients we then went on to score three goals. Unfortunately though this was not enough to beat a strong side of players at CLV, as CLV players again picked up their heels and scored a further two goals.
