Boys match V Prospect Hill

Tonight we played another friendly match V Prospect Hill. A few injuries allowed a call up for Hidar who had a great game as a striker , well done Hidar πŸ‘. 
First half we had some good opportunities to take the lead, both Oliver P and then Finley B ( free kick) hit the cross bar. 
Prospect took the lead just before half time. 
Second half they scored another two goals in quick succession. We then pulled one back from a well taken Free kick by Oliver P and then a superb cross from Jake P found Jakub C unmarked in the area to slot in to the goal. 
Prospect then scored from a goal mouth scramble to make the final score 4-2 to Prospect. 
We couldn’t be prouder of this group of Boys tonight, a lot of them playing out of position and really working together as a team.

This afternoon after school we played 2friendly matches against StAnnes. First to play were our year 2 team , Stanley in goal had an amazing game, he made some first class saves and was very impressive. Freddy played in defence and made some crucial tackles to keep the St Anne’s strikers from scoring. Archie and Jasper were on the wings and both got on the score sheet and Joe was centre midfield and kept the attackers from creating a lot of chances. Daniel and Henley both played their part in helping to keep the ball and defending the St Anne’s attacks. 
The final score was 3-2 to StAnnes but what a game. 
Then year 3 played and in the first minute St Anne’s cored a  Screamer of 
a goal. However that  didn’t deter our team and after lots of chances Beau finally found the back of the net to equalise. 
Ethan was easily the man of the match, he controlled the ball and could read the game so well. He set up Beau for another 2 goals to get his hat trick and then 2 great passes to Carys and she managed a brace. 
Charlie and Toby had a half each in goal and both played really well too. India played in defence and she was fearless, she tackled for every ball and never gave up. 
The final score was 6-2 to SparkenHill but what a great game. 
Well done πŸ‘ 

Girls match V CarrHill

Friday 4th March

Well done Girls on an all round team performance today and for some of you the first time you have ever played a match. It took a while to get the right formation but eventually everyone settled and started to play as a team. 
We had most of the possession in midfield and eventually managed to score during a goal mouth scramble. 
However as often happens CarrHill equalised within minutes. 
In the second half we changed things round and took a gamble with 2 defenders, Alexa and Destiny. 
That allowed for 3 in midfield and Darcy as a striker. The gamble  paid off and with Lillie so strong in midfield she found Darcy totally unmarked to score her first hat-trick. 
Then Maya scored after great positioning from a corner to make it 5-1.

There were debuts for Amie, Ruby, Alexa  and Daijah who played her first game for school in goal. She was awarded the player of the match by the CarrHill teachers. 
CarrHill scored another goal just before full time to make the final score 5-2 .

Tonight our boys team played in a friendly match V Prospect Hill, the first time in over 2 years that we have been able to get back to friendly matches and enjoying taking part in fixtures again. 
We took a while to get into the game and settle but once we had then we started to pass the ball more and use Harvey and Alfie on both wings and use the whole pitch. 
Jakub had 2 or 3 opportunities to put us ahead but couldn’t quite get his shots on target. 
prospect then took the lead after a lose ball in midfield fell to their player and his quick thinking and pass lead to a great shot that Finley had no chance of saving. 
In the second half Josh F came on as a defender and he made some really good tackles, Jacob H also came on in goal for his debut game. 
Jakub C had a shot that just clipped the crossbar and a few minutes later he was pulled down in the penalty area and a penalty was awarded.
