High 5 Qualifier for the LYG May 2011

The weather was kind and we had a good run down to Blackpool.  The five winners from the regional competitions in Wyre were all there.  The games were 6 minutes a quarter and after three games the children were looking a bit tired.  With two wins and a draw, our final match, against Larkholme, was the decider.  The winner would go forward to represent Wyre at the Lancashire Youth Games.  It was a fantastic game!  After the first quarter we were ahead; after the second quarter Larkholme were ahead; we were tied after the third; as the whistle went we were one ahead.  Both teams were absolutely exhausted.  The result could have gone either way and it was a shame we couldn't both go forward!

The competition was organised brilliantly again by Lee.  The children have got to know him quite well over the last couple of years and have a bit of a joke with him.  We'll all miss him next year and wonder how and if these competitions will run next year without him!
