Sports Results

On Tuesday 7th November, the boys went to Kirk Hallam for their County Final and finished a creditable third, gaining themselves a bronze award. The boys played well in the Derbyshire tournament and can reflect on a result that makes them the third best team in the whole of Derbyshire.

The girls travelled to Tibshelf the following Thursday, 9th, for their County Final. Despite not making it to the group stages, the girls were only just squeezed out by one point. Had they added a draw to their two wins they would have confirmed a semi final place.

This was not to be, losing their first two games, both 1-0 and winning their last two games.

Nevertheless, our girls are a real inspiration to the ever increasing girls football teams establishing themselves all over the country. Oakwood Juniors have led the way in girls football on the school scene, over a period of five years.

Oakwood rugby team returned to the field at Chellaston Juniors on Friday 10th November. A tough first game saw the scores level, on, 11-11. With time almost up on the clock, Oakwood had ball in hand to complete a good win but a error in handling gave the ball to Chellaston, who gladly excepted the gift and romped up the pitch to score the decisive try to win the game 12-11.

The camaraderie in this Oakwood rugby team is second to none and quickly putting the disappointment of the first game behind them, the team gathered themselves together, cut out the errors and with a good deal of grit, determination and some excellent ball play swept aside a strong Chellaston defence to gain a 10-7 win. Well deserved. Well played both teams, who played in the great spirit that rugby is so well known for.
