Fixture Report by Naomi Philpot

The Year 9 students competed in the second round of the Sister in Sport competition against Maynard’s School.  It was a great team effort with all students gaining court time. The attack through the court was dynamic and flowing, and the team really stepped up to the challenge from a highly experienced opposition. 

Defence in the circle was amazing by all the defensive players particularly when trying to mark a very tall shooter!  Although the result went in favour of Maynard’s School the congratulations given to the team by the opposition was extremely positive, and the students were a credit to the College, demonstrating resilience, courage and respect for all team members and their opposition.  Outstanding performances should be credited to Georgie, Amelia (captain) and Lucie.

U16 Football Elite Squad - National Cup     

Home against Millfield School 

Wednesday, 3 November 

Won 2-1 

Match Report by Dave Leonard 

In a game where Ivybridge found it hard to break down a stubborn Millfield defence they had to wait until the 24th minute when Walker finished well after the Millfield goalkeeper had carried out an Edworthy finish. 

On a rare attack Millfield always looked a danger and Ivybridge paid the price for not finishing this game off early when Millfield scored on a rare break away. 

Ivybridge again took the lead in the 55th minute when Walker again chased down a lost cause and got his reward as he made the goalkeeper panic and with that he got possession and tucked the ball into an empty net.  Millfield pulled on some late pressure but a strong Ivybridge defence held on for a great win to take them into the last 16.

 


U12 Football Elite Squad - National Cup  

Tuesday, 2 November 2021 

Away against Royal Wootton Bassett School in Swindon 

Won 9 - 1

Match Report by Dave Leonard 

Ivybridge had a lot of early possession in this National Year 7 Cup Fixture, and it was no surprise when in the first 14 minutes Williams scored from a Chapel corner, giving a strong Ivybridge side an early lead.  It was then Burch’s time to score in the 19th minute.  He capitalised on a defence mix up to score from 10 yards giving the goalkeeper no chance!

Ivybridge had to wait until 8 minutes into the second half to increase their lead when Lock gave the outstanding Royal Wootton Bassett's goalkeeper no chance as he found the back of the net from 20 yards.  It was then Scargill’s chance to get on the scoring chart with a clinical finish at the back post to give Ivybridge a 4-0 lead. 

Horswell got on the scoresheet in the 49th minute with a well taken effort from just inside the box.  Simms Allen and Scargill combined well just inside the box to give Simms Allen the chance to finish.  In the 50th minute Scargill this time finished with a well worked goal, cutting inside to finish from the edge of the box.  Horswell converted a penalty to make the contest over with the 8th goal for Ivybridge, and then he wrapped up the scoring a few minutes from time to make it a convincing win for Ivybridge.  The game finished 9-1.

Caleb Roberts made his Plymouth Argyle first team debut in the Papa Johns League Cup competition on Tuesday, 2 November.

He came on as a second half substitution in the 58th minute.  Plymouth Argyle drew the game 1-1 but won 5-4 in a penalty shoot-out.

Caleb is the first Ivybridge Community College student to make their full professional debut whilst still at the College.

Netball Academy U16 Game

The U16 headed to Maynard School on their first fixture of 2021.  A tough contest against a well-practiced Maynard team meant the girls eventually lost but put up a good fight until the end with all 12 of the team getting on court. Spirits are still high as they go into the Plate section of the tournament.

 

Netball Academy U15 Game 

The U15 National Cup Team looked forward to their first game of 2021 against Tiverton High School.  The game was our first home game of the year at the College and what a game it was. The girls were very confident on court and came away with a very convincing win 43 - 5.  This has given the girls confidence as they progress onto the next stage of the competition.  A very positive start for a very able Year Group who we have high hopes for.

 

 

 

 

 

Football Academy Year 7 Elite National Cup win

The Year 7 Team started off their Elite NatiA group of football players posing for a photoDescription automatically generated with medium confidenceonal Cup campaign with a convincing win over a good Torquay Academy side.  In a very competitive game Ivybridge ran out worthy winners 4-1 with goals from influential skipper Bartlett, Locke and two from Burch.

It was skipper Bartlett who scored the first goal of the campaign with a long range finish which their goalkeeper failed to hold.

Burch, who was a constant thorn in the Torquay Academy defence scored the second with a good finish from the edge of the box.  It was Burch who got the third just before half-time with a neat finish one-on-one with the keeper.

Torquay Academy started stronger in the second half and put lots of pressure on the Ivybridge rear guard but with a well marshalled defence held firm by Bartlett the Ivybridge defence was eventually breached in the 40th minute when Torquay scored.

Ivybridge were under lots of pressure but the defence held firm and with some outstanding saves from goalkeeper Thomas.  Ivybridge always look to play on the break and this proved pivotal when Locke smashed the ball into the roof for the net giving Ivybridge a well-earned victory and now look forward to an away tie against Wotton Bassett Academy in the next round.

 

Football Academy U14 Boys National Cup Success

Ivybridge Community College started this game at a high tempo and Paignton did well to contain Ivybridge for the first 10 minutes.  It was then when Birch broke the deadlock with a fine strike with a great ball through by Patrick.

Ivybridge dominated the game and in the 20th minute another great through ball by Patrick saw Birch put his powerful shot into the roof of the net to complete his brace.

Birch completed his hat trick in the 23rd minute when he went one-on-one with the goalkeeper having been put through by Pedrick.

In the 60th minute Patrick did great work in the box and worked his way to the by line to pull the ball back for Pragnell to finish with ease from 6 yards.

Farmer slotted home a penalty in the 70th minute after the dangerous Birch was bundle over in the penalty box.

Patrick completed the scoring in the 73rd minute with a fine strike from 12 yards.

 

Football Academy U15 Boys National Cup Success

Ivybridge Community College U15 Boys started their National Cup campaign with a convincing 3 -1 win against a very strong Torquay Academy side.

Ivybridge started the stronger of the two teams but found themselves a goal down after only five minutes when Torquay caught Ivybridge on a quick counter attack giving Burstow no chance in the Ivybridge goal.

This seemed to spur Ivybridge into action and then they dominated large periods of the first half.  Ireland soon equalised with a great header from Oaks' corner.

Oaks then got on the score sheet himself with a goal direct from a corner soon after the equaliser.

Ivybridge continued the second-half in the same form and went onto dominate large parts of the game and their pressure enabled Gillfillian to extend Ivybridge’s lead with a tap in at the back post.

Torquay put some heavy pressure on the Ivybridge defence but the rear guard held firm and Ivybridge saw out a great result winning 3-1.
