Check out our Sports teams’ results and reports from 8-12 November below!

Year 7 Boys’ Football v Redruth School (Home)

A last-minute goal saw the Year 7 Boys’ Football team earn a fantastic 3-2 victory against Redruth School on Tuesday afternoon, which secured them a spot in the fourth round of the National Schools Cup.

In what was an evenly-contested encounter, Penryn took a first-half lead when Ed converted from the penalty spot, before a well-taken Redruth goal levelled proceedings. But it was the hosts who went into the half-time break with a 2-1 lead, following Sam’s excellent strike.

Redruth came out of the blocks quickly after the interval, and registered a deserved equaliser with 10 minutes of the contest remaining. However, Penryn’s resilience and determination allowed them to clinch a final-minute winner when Sam tucked away his second and his side’s third goal of the game.

U16 Girls’ Regional Hockey Tournament (Away)

The U16 Girls’ Hockey team enjoyed a special trip to Bristol on Tuesday, as they took part in the Regional Hockey Tournament at Clifton College.

Year 8, 9 and 10 Boys’ Rugby v Helston Community College (Home)

The Year 8, 9 and 10 Boys’ Rugby teams took part in an entertaining group set of fixtures v Helston Community College on Thursday evening.

All of the squads played well against their opponents, with the Year 9 team receiving a special mention from staff for their “performance of the season” against a strong Helston side.

Year 7 Boys’ Rugby – Saracens v Nomads Internal Fixture

Thursday evening saw our Year 7 Saracens and Nomads Boys’ Rugby teams take part in an internal fixture, with 24 students involved!

Under strong captaincy from Dan and Zephrin, the boys rotated their substitutes and ran their own team warm-up. Mr McKinnell did a great job in refereeing his first game, with Morgan and Theo scoring the tries of the day, and some top tackles from Riley and Ed.

A great squad is being built for the future!
