Yesterday 8 players represented St Augustine’s in the KS3 West Wiltshire Badminton competition!
St A’s KS3 Boys (First Team): WINNERS!
St A’s KS3 Boys (Second Team):
After hard games against St Laurence ‘A’, John Of Gaunt, Matravers, and Clarendon, the second team of St A’s fell just short of reaching the final even though all the boys put in a long hard effort to get further in the tournament!
However, the first team were gaining more and more momentum as the tournament went on, claiming wins against Kingdown, Matravers, Melksham Oak and John of Gaunt in comfortable fashion! This led to a Semi-Final matchup between St A’s and Kingdown, yet again St A cruised to victory to set up a final between them and a very strong St Laurence.
The first singles saw Josh narrowly come short, however Ben and Adam come back in the doubles and triumph to victory, Scott then came up winning a deciding point to put St A’s into a 2-1 lead. Josh and Adam then just lost their doubles match to leave it to Scott and Ben to bring home the trophy. Leading by 8 points to 0, St A’s were cruising however a little fight back saw St Laurence bring it to 9-5. From their onwards Scott and Ben dominated each point to eventually win the game 21-10 and win the competition for St A’s!
A huge well done to all 8 players who took part, and it was privilege to watch some outstanding Badminton!
