The first game was against Oxclose A, an end to end encounter that was dominated by us ended up finishing 8-8 after we hit the cross bar with the last throw of the game.
The second game saw the boys dominate an extremely energetic Biddick side that finished 6-1 to CVEA.
And it all hinged on the final game. The boys were nervous going into the final game knowing that a win would mean they qualified to represent Sunderland. The game was tied at 3-3 going into the last 3 minutes and tiredness struck. Three extremely good goals killed us off and the boys dream of representing Sunderland in the regionals was over for this year.
Staff from all schools involved were hugely impressed with the quality of handball from our boys and their attitude to the game.
Without doubt one of the proudest nights I’ve had. The boys were outstanding. Some of the boys involved have never represented a team before and have never experienced representing Castle View in a sport before and came within 3 minutes of qualifying for regionals. Please give them a massive pat on the back tomorrow when you see them!
