Godinton win school festival
GODINTON are celebrating after winning this year’s Ashford Primary School Tag Rugby Festival and will now look to make it a win double at the Kent School Games next month. Fifteen schools attended, 13 from Ashford plus Sandling Primary School from Maidstone – last year’s runners-up – and Lenham Primary School. In the knockout stages, Pool 1 winners Godinton beat Pool 2 winners Mersham for a place in the final, while the second semi-final saw Pool 3 winners St Teresa’s beat Pool 4 qualifiers Hamstreet. In the final, St Teresa’s opened the scoring but Godinton matched them before edging in front in the final few minutes. Phoenix joined Godinton in the winners’ circle after being awarded the spirit of rugby fair play award.
