Macclesfield Express - - TRAVEL - LACROSSE

A STRONG team of six chil­dren from Gawsworth Pri­mary School took part in the Cheshire and War­ring­ton lacrosse fi­nal af­ter tak­ing first place in the Mac­cles­field Lacrosse Tour­na­ment.

Af­ter win­ning against all three schools in the heat, Gorsey Bank 4-11, St Pauls 4-7 and Wool­ston 2-9, it meant they qual­i­fied for the semi­fi­nals.

With great de­ter­mi­na­tion and ef­fort they won 13-0 against Marl­bor­ough se­cur­ing them a place in the fi­nals.

Af­ter a team talk, a few ner­vous faces, Gawsworth did what they do best and played to such a high stan­dard against Dis­ley where they tri­umphed with an almighty score of 11-2!

Gawsworth Pri­mary School Head Teacher, Michael Shaw com­mented: “It is a fan­tas­tic achieve­ment for the lacrosse team to have reached the na­tional fi­nals for the sec­ond year run­ning and tes­ta­ment to the hard work that they have put into the sport all through win­ter.”

The school’s lacrosse team will now go through to the Na­tional fi­nals in Sh­effield on the 25th June 2017.
