Illminster Exchange Home 2015

We were excited to host Ilminster Intermediate School to compete and play in a series of sports with us. We competed in a variety of sports including hockey, rugby, netball, table tennis and soccer. The action opened on a nice sunny day with our year seven netball team who went out and played and won 12-7 against Ilminster. Alongside our netballers, our under 45kg and 65kg rugby teams had a fierce game of rugby out at the rugby field. Sadly we lost both games. Following the loss of the rugby players, our team went up to the hockey on a cold day to work hard and play against the fierce Ilminster team. It turned out it was worth the cold and hard play as we won 12-0. Our table tennis team went to the school hall to play a hard, breaking match of table tennis. Scores up, down the whole time but at the end Ilminster won that long match, by about three. Right now the stakes are high and low, home and away. Taradale are hoping to win the shield. It came down to the last games of soccer. We were counting on our soccer players to get us the shield. Our boys pleased us and came away with a win, and our girls came away with a tie. Taradale are extremely excited wanting to know the scores. WE WON OUR HOME SHIELD BACK AGAIN! At every game was a great outcome of people playing and supporting our teams. Everyone had a great time.
