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.

First Half
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.

Second Half
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.

Full Time
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.

Goalscorers – Luca (2), Sean, Lucas and Ruairi.
