Congratulations to the players in the tag rugby team – silver medallists!
The team beat Wirksworth Juniors in a close game 3-2 to steady their nerves in their first game. Osmaston proved a formidable force in the second game handing Ashbourne a 4-0 loss. Mr. Clark soon motivated the players again to sweep Hope aside in the third group game allowing Ashbourne to progress to the semi-finals.
Darley Dale awaited the team and in a very close game, it looked quite tense as each side matched each others scores. Team Captain Elsie rallied her troops and Sam and Rhys capitalized on two Darley Dale mistakes to nudge Ashbourne ahead and into the final just before the whistle.
A familiar foe awaited in the final – a well drilled Year 6 team from Osmaston. Ashbourne played out of their skin to improve on their previous 4-0 loss to score two tries to Osmaston’s 5.
