Payne House secured a notable double from a special annual sporting competition prior to the Easter break.
Rydal Penrhos’ aspiring footballers competed for bragging rights at the Girls’ and Boys’ Inter-House Football tournament on Wednesday, April 3, which saw those involved compete against each other in a round-robin format to determine the overall winner.
The female section of the event was dominated by Payne, who won each of their three contests to claim the crown, scoring eight and keeping a clean sheet throughout.
Osborn finished in second spot on goal difference ahead of Morgan, with Wesley House rounding off the places in fourth.
Conditions worsened considerably during the senior boys’ event, but Payne dug deep to secure a 100 per cent record to emerge victorious.
Only goal difference separated the remaining House, with Morgan (2nd), Osborn (3rd) and Wesley (4th) all contributing to the overall success of the tournament.
Head of Middle School Paul Sanders, said: “Everyone that competed deserves a tremendous amount of credit given the conditions, which made things very interesting to say the least.
“You could see how much it meant to everyone involved, with House pride a prominent feature throughout the academic year at Rydal Penrhos across all departments.
“It was fantastic to see it played in the right spirit and congratulations go to Payne on their double victory.”
