Extra-curricular clubs in PE

Throughout this week, there have been various fixtures in the extra-curricular clubs in PE. Below are the results and a small summary of each team.

Boys Football

Y7 Football

The Y7 team travelled to South London last week to play in the quarter final fixture against St Michael's College. The boys fought incredibly well to come back from 1-0 down to win the game 4-2 with goals from Arthur B, an own goal thanks to their defender and 2 goals from Riley R. We now await our next opponents in the semi finals of the inner London cup! Well done boys!

Y8 Football

Y8 continued their dominance in the Camden Shield on Wednesday at Acland Burghley with a massive 6-1 win over Hampstead and a 3-3 draw against Maria Fidelis. Arkady pulled the strings in centre midfield in both games and was the man of the match in both games. A special mention to Caleb and Theo for making their first ever appearance for the school both played fantastically!

Y10 Football

The Y10s played their 4th round Inner London game against St Thomas More School. The game was very close with both sides looking dangerous early in the game. After withstanding some heavy pressure, Asia scored a great goal by curling the ball into the top corner of the goal. After some last ditch defending, Acland Burghley went in at half time 1-0 up. A few minutes in to the second half Acland Burghley scored again after a mazy run by Jake. St Thomas More pulled one back just before the end of the game, but the Y10 team held on to finish the game 2-1 winners and make it to the Quarter Finals.

Boys Basketball

U14 Basketball

The U14 boys team played their fixture in the Camden shield against Regents High beating them 19-8. It was a dominant performance from the boys who showed leadership, teamwork and dedication to win the match.

Cross Country

This week, Acland Burghley hosted its annual Cross-Country Championships with the strongest runners from KS3 taking part. 72 runners battled it out on a wet and muddy day at Hampstead Heath; all of whom showed incredible resilience and self-motivation to complete the difficult course that we had set. Well done to all!
