U8 football v St Margaret’s
We got there with a greeting of ‘we are bananas’ from the opposition – strange! The weather condition was not great as it was raining. Although the weather was on a low we were on a high to win this match. We were excited for the end of the first half as we knew from our past visits to this school that we get orange slices! We started the first half strong with several attacking moves but sadly none of them succeeded at getting in to the back of the net. We pushed and we pushed but it just wasn’t enough and we ended up giving away a free kick just outside our goal area which went to their star player who put it in to the back of our goal giving Albie no chance. We pushed from the centre until we had some luck. Ash took a boot which hit around 4000 people and then went in the goal. They then came in with another goal which succeded in getting planted in the corner of the net. That was the end of the first half.
I’m happy to report that the orange slices did indeed come out at half time! The second half was pretty much a repeat of the first half and we just managed to score with Ashley taking the corner and hitting one of St Margaret’s players and bouncing in to the goal. Thank you to Mr James for driving and coaching and St Margarets for match tea and orange slices. Final score 2-2 Man of the match goes to me as chosen by Mr James.
