Coquet win deciding tie

THE latest game in the Years 1 and 2 primary schools’ rugby league competition produced yet another titanic clash between Monkhouse and Coquet Park.

It was just a question of who had their nose in front at the end of game nine, and this time it was Coquet Park.

As when they first met, both teams gave it their all & were warmly applauded by yet another packed house at the final whistle. If Monkhouse fully played their part only to lose 4-3 with two games drawn.

Monkhouse: Archie Beales, Ben Brannon, Jessica Bowman, Jamie Button, Taylor Charlton, Aarron Cook, Jamie Critten, James Dunston, Lucas Graham, Lydia Graham, Ruby Graham, Freddie McKenna, Josh Pears, Holly Robson, Oliver Robson, Joseph Spencer, Evan Walker

Coquet Park: Georgie Brewis, Annabelle Crawford, Isobel Crawford, Ollie Davison, Oscar Hartley, Angus Henry, Holly Horton, Grace Irving, Kai McCartney, Joshua Redford, Sean Sanderson, Georgia Saunders, Charlie Young.

In a Year 5 and 6 league game, New York and Holystone gave an amazingly error free exhibition of fast, free flowing rugby league with Holystone running out winners 36-28.
