Team of the Week - 7 November 2015

 

The runners up are:-

 

S4 Basketball


Following the departure of Mr Docherty and Nicky Wheatley, the basketball in school has been dormant, but no longer. A group of S4’s took matters into their own hands and pitched up at Barnton to play Royal High. Despite the ad hoc nature of the team they recorded a 22 – 6 victory.

 

…and the winner is

 

S1 Rugby


Three time runners up, the S1 rugby team have finally taken the crown when, with another sturdy performance, they had a comfortable win over Ross High School. Facing very big opponents, they were able to use agility and passing to good effect, scoring most of the tries out wide. The final five minutes saw the boys lose the structure that had worked so well all match, allowing the opposition back into the game. However the damage had already been done and so victory and Team of the Week was theirs!

 



 

 



Team of the Week - 21 November 2015

 

The winner is

 

S4 Basketball


In the second leg (both away from home) of their two match series against Royal High, the Trinity Wanderers yet again came out on top. A thrilling encounter between two evenly matched sides in which the game was too close to call right to the buzzer. Two, three point shots by Kieran Flynn looked to have given Trinity a comfortable cushion but a RHS comeback got the nerves jangling until Joshua Chan clinched victory with an 15 footer. Trinity 18 RHS 15.

 



 

 



Team of the Week - 5 December 2015

 

The winners are:-


2nd XI Hockey


Despite a lot of negative chat on the way to Fettes (and some stuff about JK Rowling) the 2nds gave the Fettes girls a lesson in attacking hockey, knocking in four goals without reply and it could have been more. A special mention to Jessica Fyfe who stepped in as keeper at short notice.

 


The joint runners up are:-


1st XI Hockey


The only Trinity team that braved the horrible weather on Saturday, the 1st XI had a Lazarus style comeback (after a very stern half time team talk) against Fettes on Tuesday. 0-1 down after 2 minutes and 0-2 at half time, the team won 3-2. All the more impressive as they were playing on a water-based pitch, a surface that few are familiar with.


Wildcats Hockey


A very impressive performance to beat Fettes 4-1 in horrible conditions.
