On Wednesday 14th March 12 pupils from Y5 and Y6 competed at St. Joseph’s RC Academy, Hebburn in the South Tyneside finals.

Our 4 teams competed with good team spirit and sportsmanship against 18 other teams – with the aim of reaching the Tyne and Wear County Finals at the end of the month.

The pupils were all very determined to succeed during their games, talking and communicating with one another at a skilled level. Our team 2 and 3 topped their groups to qualify for the quarter-finals, while team 4 finished in 3rd place and team 1 in 4th place within their groups to just miss out on reaching the last 8 knock-out stage.

Here Stanhope 3 were paired against St.Aloysius Juniors, they were beaten despite winning the first end, 3-2. In our other quarter-final Stanhope 2 lost out to Lord Blyton Primary 4-1.

Well done to everyone that took part on the day and for all of your hard work and time when practising for the competition.
