North Lakes School took two teams to the Penrith District large primary schools’ Football Competition at the Leisure Centre in freezing and wet weather in January. The “A” team performed brilliantly, beating Kirkby Stephen 2-0, and Appleby 3-0. In a close group match North Lakes drew 0-0 with Beaconside, but both teams reached the final and in that match North Lakes beat Beaconside 1-0 to become the tournament winners. Like the netball team, North Lakes footballers will now progress to the Eden Valley “Champions League” tournament - congratulations to Tom S, Matthew L, Liam, Nathan, Ben V, James and Toby.
At the same tournament, North Lakes “B” team worked really hard and improved throughout the the morning. North Lakes “B” beat Kirkby Stephen 4-0 over two matches, and lost to Beaconside 1-0 over two matches. North Lakes did reach the final but lost out narrowly, in the last minute, to Beaconside by 2 goals to 1. Well done for a great team effort to Jay Mc, Matthew S, Luke, Ben T, Daniel C, Cameron and Taylor E
