Wow! What a busy week in football. We have four games to report on.
Last Friday our Y6 team were at home to Homefield. What an end to end game, but sadly we were at the losing end of a 4-3 thriller. Both team played some great football and we were very unlucky to not have won. Big thank-you to Malawi for stepping in for Shay and thank you Shay for your work in the team this season. I'm sure I speak for all the team we wish you all the best for your time with the Norwich team.
Monday saw our Y5 boys visit Cliff Park and we were all treated to an 8 goal match . Things didn't start too well in the first half when we found ourselves 3-0 down but we managed to score a reply just before half time. The second half started and Cliff Park scored a third but this seemed to spark the boys into life and what a transformation! We clawed one back and then another so at 4-3 time was running out but the Y5s didn't give up - they fought and fought and with some brilliant skills we got an equaliser! After that it was all Peterhouse and if there were just a few minutes more I'm sure we would have found a winner. Well done Sasha for your hattrick and Marley for your first game. I have to mention Liam in goal and to quote Phoenix's dad, he made some worldies. He did make some unbelievable saves. Everyone played fantastic football especially in the second half.
Tuesday saw the Y5s playing again at Hillside. Yet again these lads showed me how much determination, skills and teamwork they had. Peterhouse dominated the game. The defence was solid and our keeper didn't have to make one save today. Marley opened the score and then Sacha got his 4th and 5th goal in the last two games. They really were so impressive; next season looks promising for them. All the players in the last two games should be proud of themselves.
Today saw our girls play their second-from-last game and wow! We dominated from start to finish and we were treated to a ten goal thriller. I was so impressed by the team work and the camaraderie of all the girls today; every one played a massive part. The final score was 9-1 to Peterhouse. Malawi scored 8 (yes, 8!) goals today and Ellie scored the other. We have one more game this season against Woodlands on Monday. One more win girls - you can do it!
Many many thanks to all our parents, grandparents and other family members for your support for our team. Many thanks to Riley’s dad for refereeing for us and of course, I must thank Trevor for his help and support.
No sign of the flamingo today but I have heard she is making a special visit on Monday to cheer the girls on.
A very VERY proud Mr Duncan
