Well done to our Year 5/6 football team that tonight played their first league match of the season against local rivals Windmill Primary School.
Grange Park had some great chances early on but we couldn’t get past the Windmill goalkeeper that pulled off some great saves to keep the game at 0-0. Windmill then had the chance of the first 10 minutes when their striker was one on one with our goalkeeper, but our keeper was very brave and made a great diving save at the striker’s feet to win the ball back. Not long after Grange Park finally took the lead with an absolutely stunning volley into the top corner after a great bit of passing football from the team. The game remained 1-0 for most of the first half until Grange Park got another 2 late goals before the break.
We then got off to flyer in the 2nd half, scoring 3 goals in a matter of minutes. The 5th goal was a joy to watch with nearly every Grange Park player passing the ball around the pitch before it was finally tapped in for an open goal. The boys gave 100% and we were extremely proud that despite the big score line they continued to work as a team and didn’t just try to score for themselves.
Grange Park won the match 11-1
Well done boys
