Congratulations to all the year 5 and 6 boys who represented our school in this week’s football match. Several players in each year were making their debut appearances for the school and handled the situation with wonderful professionalism.
After the frustration of previous matches being called off, the boys were delighted to be playing a game and their enthusiasm was wonderful to see. The match was played against Faith Primary.
Our boys got off to a tough start through conceding an unfortunate goal. However, their resilience was wonderful to see as they dominated possession for the rest of the first half; finally being rewarded through an excellent team goal scored by captain Kian Skinley.
The second half started at 1-1 and quickly became a close, defensive game. Both goalkeepers were in sublime form, with Kamil Skop pulling out some wonderful acrobatic saves when a goal looked certain. Faith’s keeper was also an excellent player, though our fantastic attacking trio of Kian, Bobby and Joe finally got through with minutes left as Kian scored a second goal from the edge of the area.
The match ended 2-1 shortly afterwards. An excellent match carried out with wonderful sportsmanship. Congratulations especially to our keeper Kamil, our tireless defenders, Sonny for working constantly in midfield and our wonderful attackers. Three points secured and we’re already looking forward to the next game!
MOTM: Bobby Mitchell, for excellent passing, movement and for excellent sportsmanship.
