Mark Taylor, 15 entertained us with his report of Rushden & Diamonds' victory over Darlington. Here are a couple of extracts...

A persistent Rushden and Diamonds side overcame Third Division strugglers Darlington with two goals in the final 12 minutes, including a terrific turn and finish by Onandi Lowe.

He continued...

As the half-time whistle was blown, the referee took some deserved verbal abuse from the Diamonds faithful after making several dreadful decisions during the first half.

These included the cautioning of Lowe for trying to reach a header.

Clearly heading the ball is now a bookable offence then!

Our second winner this week was Jill, 15 with her sparkling words on Ireland's rugby victory over Australia. Here is part of it.

The date was the 9th of November, the place Lansdowne Road and the opponents came in the mighty form of current world champions Australia.

As both teams took to the rain sodden pitch Irish spirts were high.

Straight from the kick off O'Driscoll made a thumping tackle, just the beginning of what was to be an inspiring performance from the young but world class centre.

And she ended with...

Finally it was injury time the roar around the stadium was immense with Irish supporters waving flags, hats and generally screaming at the referee " blow the whistle!"

Eventually it came after almost 87 minutes. Ireland were victorious and what a sweet moment for players and fans alike... well it had taken them over 20 years to do it!!!

If you think you can do better make sure you enter this and every week!
