Congratulations to all the year 5 and 6 boys who represented our school in this week’s football match. Our team was fairly young, with many year 5s in the team and some making their school debut.
The match was very tight from the beginning, with neither defence giving anything away. Our strike force was dangerous, with Billy Smith and Joe McFarlane-Wells ducking in and out of defenders to set up chances for striker Zac Abbou. Eventually, this was rewarded with a 1st half goal from skipper Sonny Geraghty, with a clinical finish inside the area.
The 1st half ended 1-0 to OLI and, after 2 substitutions, the match became even tighter, with both teams coming extremely close to scoring several times. St. Anne Stanley hit the post and were denied by a goal-line clearance twice! There were some amazing saves from Kamil Skop and defender Aiden Burns was a brick wall at the back. Eventually, after excellent defending from both teams, the final whistle blew and OLI took the 3 points, 1-0. Congratulations to the boys who are looking ahead to our next game on Thursday 9th February!
MOTM: Aiden Burns, for playing a solid defensive game that ensured a clean sheet.
