Sporting Glimpses of Brilliance - w/e 14th February 2020
In the Lady Taverners’ indoor cricket competition, Sophie Cooke scored an unbeaten 15 runs and had to retire against Passmores. She then scored 10 more runs in the game against Notley High School. As well as being the highest scorer with the bat, she bowled extremely well being hit for only 8 runs in 2 overs and topped off an excellent performance with an outstanding run out when fielding. Well done Sophie.
We are delighted to report that Chris Thompson enjoyed a good start to his first year in the Under 15 boys’ long jump category as he secured silver following a jump of 5.17m in the Essex County category of the competition.
Brentwood’s Equestrian team started the 2020 season in style with a convincing win in the 95cm Eventer Challenge class at Brook Farm Equestrian Centre. The team of Ben Hogarth (a super second individually), Emma Philpot, Sophie Philpot and Imogen Pohl rode superbly to gain qualification for the Hickstead Championships in May. Imogen Pohl also judged a perfect round to be within half a second of the undisclosed optimum time for an individual win on her second pony. The same team went on to produce a strong fourth placing in a competitive 95cm showjumping class. After a very long day, the final class resulted in our team of three consisting of Ben, Emma and Sophie coming an outstanding second place in the 105cm showjumping. This gained them qualification for the Elite Showjumping Championships at Hickstead in August and also the National NSEA Championships in October.
Congratulations to our Under 14 rugby team who progressed through to the Essex Cup semi-final after beating Great Baddow convincingly despite terrible weather conditions. Brentwood scored six tries and three conversions in their 36-0 victory. Complemented by William Howard, who was successful with three conversions, try scorers for Brentwood were Rory Philpot, Joe Byrne, William Elliss and Ross Mandie who scored a hat-trick of tries.
On the netball court the glimpse of brilliance is awarded to the Under 14A netball team who won their quarter-final of the Essex Cup against Southend High School for Girls with Olivia Carr tenacious and determined in defence to restrict the SHSG attack. The team now progress through to the semi-final! Well done.
On the football field, there were a number of great performances against Bishop’s Stortford High School. The Under 14s were unbeaten in the matches played away while at home the Under 13 A and B teams both won 3-2. In the Under 13A team game, Lois Hall was very good in midfield but the glimpse of brilliance came from Ben Cope who scored from 25 yards to seal victory!
