Yr 5 + Yr 6 v St James'

Football Teams in St James’ Stalemate

On Wednesday the Year 5 and Year 6 football teams played league fixtures against St James', Weybridge. Both games proved to be exceptionally close, ending in draws.

The Year 5 team completely dominated their game, creating chance after chance but they couldn’t add to the first half goal scored by Ethan. Almost inevitably, St James broke away to equalise and after an unfortunate penalty miss late on, we were left to reflect on a missed opportunity for 3 points. Nevertheless, it was a very good performance and the Year 5 team remain undefeated in the league.

The Year 6 game was a very equal contest throughout. A great first half goal by Jack gave us a 1-0 half time lead but St James roared back after the break to storm into a 2-1 lead. With time rapidly running out and the clock ticking into the final minute, Luke burst through the St James defence and unleashed an unstoppable right foot thunderbolt which flew into the corner of the net! 2-2 – an excellent result against a useful team. Well done to all!
