Year 8 Touch Rugby Finals

The Year 8 girls touch rugby team travelled to Leeds West Academy on Wednesday 28th February for the Leeds City finals, hosted by Leeds Rhinos foundation.

This was a final 4’s tournament where they played against the winners of the North, East and West tournaments that were held before half term. The tournament was a really good standard that saw lots of close games.

The team began by playing against Trinity, where the leading team kept changing throughout the game. The girls were unlucky to lose this game 5-6. MSM players showed great resilience throughout, along with a great team morale where players encouraged each other and looked to continually better their performance. In their second game they narrowly missed out on a win, drawing 2-2 against Leeds West Academy, who eventually became the overall winners. The final game against Allerton Grange saw MSM win, securing them 3rd place.

An incredible achievement for the girls. Well done to all of the team, especially Aurelia Uminska, who was nominated as Player of the Tournament.
