An incredible achievement – well done Savannah from everyone at Southam College.

Year 7 Football

Southams tough run continues after exiting the county cup last week. Myton, the visitors, began strongly passing the ball to feet and using the width of the pitch to pressurise Southams defence. However, last ditch tackles went in to prevent an early score. The time did come as Myton won a corner which found the unchallenged head of the opposition to take the lead. Southam began to string some passes together but found it hard to keep possession with the pressure they were being put under. As interceptions were collected by Myton they found the chances to push forward and strike the back of the net twice more, made easier with the width they kept on the ball. Southam retaliated by winning their own corner after linking play to get in behind the Myton defence, but unfortunately nothing was to come of it. As half time was looming a persistent strike force from Myton managed to grind down the defence once more to take a flattering half time lead.

After discussions over the break to take more time on the ball and stretch the play wider Southam came out a determined team to get the game back on track. Southam started to keep the ball for longer periods of time and worked they way into the oppositions half more frequently. It was Southam though who were caught off guard after pressure in attack led to a breakaway finish. For the remainder of the half Southam proved they could be equal opposition, Cameron Power holding up the play nicely, linking through balls for debutant Oliver Upton to run onto and attack the defence. Despite playing much better football during this half the golden opportunity never came to pull a goal back. The nearest strike, a long range effort from Cameron, coming back of the bar which defenders managed to scramble away. As the game moved into the final minute a much rarer Myton attack produced a corner resulting in a close range strike to finish the game with another goal.

Southam had shown that during the second half they were able to adapt and take on board what was required of them to play some good football. With a few adjustments to work on at training on Thursday Southam can continue to grow in strength for their games next week.

Year 7 Rugby

Southam 0 Camp Hill 10
No Glee for Lee!

A brilliant Man of the Match performance from Josh Lee was little consolation as Year 7 fell to their first defeat against good quality opposition. Josh was so fast to the ruck and maul, showing his more hesitant fellow forwards the way.
The champagne moment was awarded to Patrick Fitzgerald. Challenged with improving his tackling, Pat produced the Tackle of the Match five minutes after coming on. He crouched, hit hard and low and sent the ball carrier flying back.
Excellent rush defence by Camp Hill made it difficult for the boys to find space. We need to pass the ball more swiftly to provide more opportunities for the dangerous James Phillips, Cameron Power, Lennie Cramp, Ben Robinson and Tom Hill. We also need to cut down on the penalties conceded. The penalty count of 12 to 1 in Camp Hill’s favour made it extremely difficult to compete.
Practice is on Wednesday to prepare for a game next Saturday.
