U15 Rugby vs Radnor House
Bethany U15 rugby played Radnor House on Monday in their final game of the season. After a successful season and many players improving their rugby playing skills, the team were keen to complete a good run of form on a winning note.
A strong start saw Bethany take an early lead. The score was soon increased as Radnor House struggled to contain the Bethany forward running power with tries from Olauluwa Amusan, Ben Caney and Max Wheeler.
With a big squad available and the scoreboard quickly moving to a 40 point lead, Bethany made a number of changes to the team on the pitch.
All the squad members that played performed with impressive determination and illustrated performance development from September, which was great to see. The final score of 47 – 7 was a fitting end to the season.
Special mentions must go to Max Wheeler and Will Harby who both led the team superbly and both played to a consistently high standard throughout the season.

The girls finished the season with a great 1-0 win. Well done girls.

U13a Netball vs Marlborough House School
As a pre-season fixture, this was the first time these girls have played together and some of them in new positions. In the first half, we were very competitive with the 1st quarter finishing 4-6 and the second 7-11 to Marlborough House.
At half time some of the girls wanted to try different combinations. This affected the score in the 3rd quarter where we scored 2 goals; as it was pre-season we were not too concerned with the score. In the 4th quarter, we brought it back to win the last quarter 4 goals to 3.
A very promising start for the netball season next term.
Player of the match: Veleriia Maier
Coaches Players: Rebecca Martin and Ella Smith
U13b Netball vs Malborough House School
Our U13b team had their first netball match of the year in a pre-season friendly against Marlborough House on Wednesday.
The girls played very well as a new unit and progressively improved as the game went on. Bethany’s defence worked very hard as Marlborough House persistently attempted to put the ball into attack, retrieving multiple rebounds.
Unfortunately, Bethany was unable to gain a goal and at half time the score was 8-0 to Marlborough House. The girls were keen to improve their game and we tried to implement no overhead passes into the game, which Bethany managed to do well, allowing a much more flow in attacking play. The score of the second half 3-2 to Marlborough House. An encouraging start to the season.
Marlborough House 11 – Bethany 2
Player of the Match: Alice Gilbert

1st XI Hockey vs Dover College
Bethany 1st XI travelled to play against a very strong Dover side. The first half was extremely competitive with both sides creating some great opportunities. Dover scored from a short corner with 5 minutes to go. In the second half, Dover grew into the game more, playing some lovely hockey and scoring 4 goals in a short space of time. Bethany defended courageously until the final whistle but unfortunately came away second best.
Final Score: 8- 0 to Dover College
Player of the Match: Amelia Midgley
