The Packwood Haugh Under 11 Sevens Rugby tournament was held on Wednesday 27th February 2013. It was a sunny day throughout and the rugby was played in excellent conditions.
APS were in Group D, a fairly easy group. In our first match we played a school called The Old Hall. The score was 27-0 and we scored five tries in this game, we were the better team for the entire match. In the second game we were up against The Downs, and we lost 28-14. We played well but struggled to break them down. In our last group game we played against Prestfelde. After a first half we should definitely forget, we were down two tries to one. The APS boys improved their passing and handling skills and managed to score another three tries by Tom, Elliot and James. The final score was 28-12. These results meant that we finished second in our group and we went into the main competition, not the plate.
In the quarter final of the main competition we played against a strong side called Moor Park, unfortunately we lost 28-0. The match was much closer than the score suggests.
The team played very well, we all enjoyed the day and we were pleased with our results.
