U13 football v Thetford Grammar
I won the toss and chose to kick off. After playing Thetford Grammar only last week we knew what a good team we were facing. During the first half there were plenty of opportunities for both teams to get on the scoresheet. The opposition had the wind behind them really testing our defence of Harry, Harley, Wilf, Jameson and Tristan. With Merlin making some really good saves in goal we managed to keep a clean sheet in the first half so it was 0-0 at half-time.
After an inspiring team talk from Mr James we came out for the second half full of determination as did Thetford Grammar who slipped through our defence to score the first goal. We fought back hard and after some great passing between Henry, Ed Harc and I, Ed Harc managed to get the equaliser with a great strike. Although we all continued to work hard as a team, Thetford Grammar scored 2 more goals. With minutes left in the game, I was awarded a penalty which I scored. Unfortunately the whistle then went for full time so the match ended in a 3-2 win for Thetford Grammar.
Man of the match goes to Harley for being a rock in defence. Special mention to the whole team for a great team effort making it a very close game. Thank you to Mr James for coaching and refereeing and to matron for match tea.
