Yr 5 Football v Grovelands 11.11.16
On Friday 11 November, Cardinal Newman played Grovelands. Disappointingly, the conditions were not great as it was damp and icy cold.
Grovelands kicked off but Cardinal Newman made a very quick start, scoring a spectacular goal within the first few minutes of the game. After some amazing team work and skilful passing the score at half time was Cardinal Newman 3 Grovelands 1.
The second half got off to a slow start. However, Grovelands fought hard but Cardinal Newman continued with great defence, not allowing Grovelands another goal for the remainder of the match. Cardinal Newman scored a further 2 goals in the second and got very lucky because they scored in the last few seconds of the game.
Both teams put in a great tame of football but it was Cardinal Newman who were winners in the end with a final score of Cardinal Newman 5 Grovelands 1.
