Summer Cup Winners

Fantastic results yesterday for our MOL P4/5 and P6/7 teams both winning the 2019 Summer Cup.

P7’s finishing their time as MOL players on a high ⚽️ Big thanks to coach Alex as this was also his last tournament, always encouraging and believing in the boys he will be missed by team MOL ⚽️

P6/7 coach Alex said…….A truly amazing and fitting way to finish our season!
We limped through the group stage and then Came alive in the knock outs!

We beat p7’s cradlehall in the 1/4 with a tidy goal from Jamie! But the teams work rate went to another level in the knock outs! An we dug in to claim victory!

The semi we played and defended really well against the allstar and went to penalties!
But this seems to be our forte as Caleb scores first
They missed
Cole put to bed his fear of missing to score our second
Tyler made a truly amazing save to deny allstars second
Owen in true Owen fashion buried his penalty (never misses)
Allstars scored
Jamie slotted our 4th
And allstar there final penalty
Mol 4 allstars 2

On to the final we marched
Against a very good kinmylies side but a returning Shaun Clare scores our first and Caleb with a long throw hit of a defender giving us a 2 goal cushion!
Our defence held strong and we won 2-0

P4/5 coach Kenzie said…….This morning we had 2 teams at the summer Cup.
Team 2 played well in their mini league but unfortunately didn’t get the rub of the green in some of their games Ruairaidh scored a brilliant goal in 1 of the games and the excitement in there faces after was great to see, Cole was superb in goals Today’s team was Cole, James, Finlay, Brodie, Cian, Maya, Filip, Ryan Morrison and Ruairaidh.

The other team what can I say
They played 7 games and more they played the better they got without hitting top gear.
In their mini league they played
Mol 1 crown 0. Ryan m ⚽
Mol 0 merkinch 2
Mol 2 Farr 0 Jamie ⚽ Fraser ⚽
Mol 1 Gaelic Jamie ⚽
That set up a Quater final against Holm with shaun ⚽ scoring the only goal
The semi final seen us come up against lochardil with a lot of fouls against our boys and with Frasers ⚽ bullet finish we made it to the Final.
In the final we came up against a merkinch team that beat us earlier we changed personnel around and scored an early goal through a fantastic finish by Ryan Moffat ⚽ and with caleb ⚽ scoring a 🌼 cutter that bobbles over the keeper it gave us a lead which we defended to become champions.

Thanks to all involved ⚽️

P6’s Design a Perfect Property for a Bee Competition Results!

Design a Bee HousePeter Murphy, Branch Manager at YourMove, set us a challenge as part of our Bee Brilliant project.  The challenge, ‘Design a perfect property for a Queen Bee.’   The P6s looked at all the features used in property schedules and then used what they learned to produce their own property schedules for a Queen Bee.  Peter came in today to judge the entries.  He was really impressed with the level of attention to detail.  He chose three winners who each received a £10 gift card for Waterstones, the prizes were donated by YourMove.

1st place was Olivia, 2nd place was Keita and 3rd place was Ava H.  (Unfortunately Ava H was not in for the photo).

Peter took quite a few of the schedules away to display them in the Inverness YourMove branch – he really was impressed.  And a special thanks went to Iona for noticing that YourMove were misspelling Inshes in their property schedules.

Thank you Peter and thank you P6 for your efforts.
