On Saturday the U11 mixed team played tag rugby. There were three other schools. Unfortunately we could only play one school, which was Chengelo. We did not get to play Simba or Musenga because they did not bring an U11 team.
The first game was against staff. We drew 5-5. The tries were scored by Richard and Twiza, who scored one each, and Laura who scored three. The next game was against Chengelo. We were tired from our previous game, we were a lot younger than the staff, but Chengelo only beat us by two tries. The score was 9-7. Richard, Laura, Yamikani and a few others scored our tries. Our final game was against Chengelo again. The score was 8-5 to them. Kathleen, Richard and Laura scored the tries
Overall we came second out of two schools. We were given prizes at the end. I would like to thank my team- Hayden, Laura, Megan, Twiza, Richard, Linda, Kathleen, Papa and Yamikani, who played their hardest. I’d also like to thank Mrs.Wardle for being our coach, as well as for Mrs.Kirk and Mr.Kapalaula and especially God for a great day Thank you.

On Saturday the 24th of March the Amano U13 team played tag rugby here at Amano with four teams. We played Musenga Basic first. They kept making mistakes like passing forward and just throwing it up when they got tagged. As it was their first time playing the game, I can understand why they made these mistakes!
We had a strong defence formation and a good attacking one too, by half time we were leading by three tries to zero and by the end of the game we had won four zero. We shook hands and we were done with the game.
The next game we played the staff team. We started the game and before we knew it we had been scored against by the staff. By half time, we were losing three zero and I told the team if we want to win we need a stronger attacking formation and a defence formation so they did what I said and we started gaining points but they were not enough and we ended up losing that game by five points to four. I won’t say it was a big loss but I’m happy we were able to get some points back. The next game we played against Chengelo. The game felt quick, we scored tries and we also got scored, and by half time it was four all. In the last few seconds, Chengelo surprisingly managed to score a try and we lost 6 tries to 5.
We were really tired and the next game was against Simba. By half time we were losing 3 tries to 6. It got worse in the second half and the match ended with us losing 8 tries to 4.
I would like to thank the team and God for not letting us get injured.

U13 Girls Tag Rugby
At the tag rugby tournament on Saturday, an U13 girls’ team played 4 matches. In our first game we played Musenga Basic, it was an easy game so we beat Musenga 6 tries to 0. Our next game was the staff team we lost that game 5-4. Then came Chengelo which was challenging but we won that game 3-2. After Chengelo it was Simba, now u13 girls Simba complained a lot as they thought the Ref wasn’t being fair, but either way we still won that game. Although we did get slow and annoyed so we let them get 2 tries, we won that game 6-2.
The people who scored tries were Natasha.c Sara and Kukenga who each scored 5 tries, Chawa who scored 3 tries, Giselle and myself who scored 1 each.
I would like to thank Cholwe for extra coaching, the team for all their hard work, the Tag Rugby Trust, Samuel, Philip, Musonda, Ilunga and Mwansa for refereeing, mostly God for his protection.
