Match report

Sport: Football
Year group: 5 & 6
Against: St. Nicholas

Report:

The team were in determined mood ahead of their first match of the year, especially considering the fantastic win for the Lower School team in their fixture the week before. We played two matches against a well-organised St. Nicholas team who came in to the game full of confidence off the back of some big wins for their team recently.  We did an amazing job playing with lots of flowing attacking play and some very assured defending at times. Both matches were highly competitive and saw both sides trying their hardest to win to the very last minute. In the end, each team won one match and we showed that we have real potential this year.

 

Highlight of the match:

Match 1: Every player in the team working together and playing some of the best football we have played together.

Match 2: Jose Maria and Gerard combining to win the ball back and go the length of the pitch to score.

 

Score:

Match 1: (W) 6 – 5 (Gerard, Saeed, Nicholas, Giovanni)

Match 2: (L) 4 – 5 (Gerard, Ali, Jose Maria)
