School Games Finals Triumph for Wilson Stuart School

Wilson Stuart School took four teams to the Birmingham School Games Finals last week, two in the table cricket competition and to teams in the goalball competition.

In the goalball competition both teams started well and took some wins over Priestley Smith who then came back with their A team to narrowly beat us in the first stages of the competition. In the next round Wilson Stuart A team played against the B team with the B team narrowly winning that contest to go through to the finals against Priestley Smith A team. The Wilson Stuart B team then played a bronze medal match against Priestley Smith B team and were victorious finishing overall in 3rd Place. In the final Wilson Stuart played superbly and have improved all day unfortunately they were unable to get any goals due to the outstanding performance on the Priestley Smith captain who blocked everything. Priestley Smith finally managed to break through Wilson Stuart’s defences however and claim two goals winning them the game and the title. It was an excellent performance from both Wilson Stuart teams who came away with 2nd and 3rd place medals.

 Over at Edgbaston the table cricket teams were playing hard in their competition. The A team easily sailed through to the finals against an excellent Hall Green Team,  it was an extremely close game but after some excellent precision shots to score maximum points Wilson Stuart A team became Birmingham Champions 2014. The B team also played valiantly throughout the tournament and improved with every game that they played and made it through to the 3rd place play off, where an excellent performance made them the victors in the match claiming bronze medals overall.
