Completed the Double

Completed the Double

Well done to our Year 5/6 football team that tonight completed the double by winning the Meadows Cup. The boys had some of the toughest matches they’ve had all season tonight and had to come back from behind in two of the games to get points. This showed what great character the boys have to not give up despite going behind. The last match of the night was the decider that the boys had to win to secure the trophy. Despite dominating the first half, the boys were 1-0 after our opponents scored on the break. It didn’t last long though with Grange Park scoring within 30 seconds of the restart. We continued where we left off but with our opposing goalkeeper being on great form it looked like the game was going to be a draw. With only 2 minutes left though we scored a great team goal and then it was all about stopping our opponents. In the last few seconds our opponents had a corner and threw everyone forward and it looked as though they had scored until Kai popped up out of nowhere to stab the ball off the line. This was a great achievement for our boys especially as our captain was missing tonight. The boys were determined to match the girls football teams result from last week. Well done again boys.
