The Deeping School 3 - 2 Jack Hunt School

Deeping played their quarter final of the Peterborough Cup against an extremely resilient Jack Hunt side.  The game was an extremely close affair, with Jack Hunt on both occasions pulling the game back.

Then Deeping took the lead through a James Ware goal and then a further James Ware goal to make it 2-0.  However, Jack Hunt stayed in the game by equalising soon after on both occasions.  Jack Hunt could have gone onto win the game if it wasn’t for a good save by Nathan Pickering. 

Deeping went on the attack and were awarded a penalty for a hand ball against a Jack hunt defender.  Oliver Piddington stepped up and slotted the ball home coolly under pressure.  A great win and now a semi-final to contend with. Great effort, lads!

The Deeping School 2 – 0 Thomas Clarkson

The year 9 team made it through to the quarter final stage of the Peterborough Cup to face a well organised Thomas Clarkson. The opposing side were proving a difficult team to break down and both teams were keeping it tight at the back with not many shots at goal.

However, a good turn in midfield by James Russell, gave himself time to pick a sublime pass to Josh Gear who ran through one on one with the goal keeper and calmly slotted it home 1-0.  Thomas Clarkson kept applying pressure to try and find an equaliser but were superbly sniffed out every time by the excellent Oscar Benson and Stanley Etchells, who were brilliant all game. 

The second half was a nervy affair with both teams pushing for that next important goal.  About 5 minutes from the final whistle the ball bounced kindly to George Cushen on the edge of the box, who volleyed it over the goal keeper!  A great performance and now the semi- final for the team to prepare for- well done!

Under 19 Basketball V Peterborough Regional College

A friendly game against PRC for the U19 Basketball team was played in good spirit. Captained by Jack Power, the team did not let themselves down and scored some fantastic baskets; Jackson Andrew 18, Jack Towers 8, Jack Power 9 and Ollie Flint 2.

Defensively the team were strong and prevented PRC's unrelenting offence from converting time and time again. Callum Howitt, Pat Callisto and Fin Bulbeck all worked tirelessly throughout the game.

A great game for the neutral to watch but sadly ended with a Deeping School loss.
