A great day was had by all who travelled to Ashbury to compete in the Co-operative Cup. This is now an annual event to bring together Year 7 pupils from all schools in the greater Devon Co-Operative Schools’ Partnership (GDSCP) to enjoy sport and to have an early experience of competitive fixtures in an all-day tournament. There were 16 netball teams and 17 football teams from all over Devon attending including Bude, Okehampton, West Exe, Dawlish, KEVICCs (King Edward VI Community College, Totnes), Cullompton, South Molton, Tavistock, Tiverton and of course Holsworthy.
In the netball tournament both of our teams were unbeaten in the group stages and topped their pools meaning they both went through to the quarter finals.
Pool C Results:
Hols A v Bude B (5-1 win)
Hols A v Bude C (4-0 win)
Hols A v West Exe A (2-0 win)
Holsworthy A were knocked out of the competition after losing to Bude A 7-3 in the quarter finals
Pool D Results
Hols B v Bude A (6-2 win)
Hols B v KEVICCs A (12-0 win)
Hols B v West Exe B ( 12-0 win)
Holsworthy B won their quarter final match against Bude B 17-3. They then went onto to play Bude A in the semi-finals which Holsworthy won 5-8. Holsworthy were now through to the final against Okehampton A. It was a closely matched game with Okehampton taking a 2-0 lead and at half time the score was 5-3. Holsworthy fought back hard and managed to draw the second half of the game scoring 4 goals each meaning the game ended 9-7 and Okehampton won and Holsworthy came runners up! The boys’ football team also reached the quarter finals. This was a fantastic achievement given that Holsworthy Community College is the smallest of all the schools taking part.
