The Y8 boys had a brilliant start to the football season with a County Cup match away at Durham against Framwellgate school.
The year 8 team continued on from last season with a good win over a strong team in challenging windy conditions. Goals from Lucas Goddard, Brandon Williams and a penalty scored by the man of the match Jacob Mallinson gave the team a 3-0 half time lead.
Framwellgate started strongly in the second half scoring two goals but the team always looked capable of scoring more and won comfortably in the end.
The year 7 Boys team have reached the County Cup Quarter Final following an excellent result against St.Josephs from Hebburn.
The result of 2-0 was a based around a solid defence across the pitch. In the first half, St.Josephs dominated possession but were unable to create any clear chances. Hummersknott took one of their few chances in the first half created from a cross by Joe Dunn and brilliantly finished by Brandon Williams. Second half was more even for chances with Harry Harrison making a fine save from a driven shot. The game was still tense and could still have gone either way until a great break away attack by Lucas Goddard playing a wonderfully weighted through ball for Brandon to run onto and slip passed the on rushing keeper to make it 2-0.
The quarter final opponent will be away to either St. Bedes RC from Lanchester or St. Robert of Newminster

The Y9 football team played Carmel College at home yesterday.
All players had a brilliant match and contributed individually as a team.
At half time it was 1 - 0 after Oscar Taylor scored a great breakaway goal. The second half was evenly contested. The second goal of the match was scored by Kai Smith for us. Carmel then narrowed the gap with one goal, but we restored the two goal advantage with another fantastic strike by Oscar Taylor. Carmel pulled back again with another great goal, but we still had enough fight to hold on for a superb win.
Special mention should be made of Matthew Edwards who had originally intended to spectate, but ended up playing part of the match, when one of the players had to retire injured.
Players: Harry Chrisp, James Morley (Year 8), Charlie Kinnear, Kai Smith, Louis Moran, Jack Hurworth, Daniel Le Roi Smith, Lewis Johnson, Robbie McMain, Oscar Taylor, Jow Bowsher, Laurie Carragher, Matthew Edwards
