On 20th September Year 5 and 6 went to play a match against St Olaves up at Sidcup Rugby Club. We were fired up when we arrived and we were very excited for the game ahead of us. When it was time to play the whistle began the match.
St Olaves played very well and were 3-0 up by half time. Our defence worked very hard to stop St Olaves from scoring anymore. In the second half West Lodge played well, having some good shots on target and some good passes between the team.
The match finished with St Olaves winning 3-0. I think our team played brilliantly, particularly in the second half, and we gave it our all.

This year's netball season got off to a great start today with our U11 team taking part in the start of league tournament hosted by Colfe's.
The girls played 8 matches in total with only a ten minute break throughout the whole tournament! Their play improved significantly throughout the afternoon and their sportsmanship was commendable with the girls encouraging each other, coaching each other and congratulating other teams on their successes. The girls demonstrated some excellent movement on the court as well as some superb interceptions and shooting.
The teams played and scores acheived were as follows:
Breaside: 4-2 (Loss)
Blackheath Prep: 6-1 (Win)
Blackheath High: 2-0 (Win)
Colfe's: 2-0 (Win)
Merton Court: 4-1 (Win)
Farringtons: 6-1 (Loss)
Babington House: 7-0 (Win)
Bromley High: 5-2 (Loss)
Thank you so much to the parents who came along to support the team today, to Mrs Backley for her fabulous coaching and to the girls themselves for their commitment and hard work. Here's to the rest of the season. Keep it up girls!
