Football competition. School 2

On Monday 29th October, School 2 went to compete in the first inter-school football competition of the 2018/2019 academic year.

The tournament kicked off with School 4 playing School 9. Despite some brave defending and valiant attacks from School 4, School 9 proved too strong and scored consistently in both halves to come away winners by 6 goals to 0. 

School 2 took to the pitch in the second match, aware they'd have a very difficult task to overcome the imperious School 9. With a few nerves causing mistakes and the team not quite bonding as well as they could, they could only manage 1 goal in reply to School 9 scoring 6 once again. 

The third match, 4 vs 2, was a much closer game with both goalkeepers making good saves behind busy defenders. Whilst they emerged as 4-1 winners, School 2 fought hard for every possession and were matched in many areas of the pitch. 

Round 2 was a terrific spectacle with all three schools having settled and started producing some good football. Both School 4 and School 2 improved dramatically, securing 4-2 and 3-1 losses against School 9 respectively, displaying good progress and adapting to the conditions well.

The final game of Round 2, between 4 and 2 would decide which team would accompany School 9 in the final. The atmosphere was tense, the tackles were desperate and the saves by both goalkeepers were exceptional. With School 4 needing to win at least 4-1, they took a 3-1 lead with 2 minutes remaining. School 2 defended as if their lives depended on it, all 6 behind the ball. With just a few seconds remaining, the ball ricocheted into the path of School 2's striker who scored and secured a 3-2 loss but progression to the final.

The final looked as though it might be one sided, especially as School 9 took an early 1 - 0 lead. However, two incredible long shots and one great piece of attacking play led to School 2 taking a surprise 3-1 lead. With just two minutes left to play, and the trophy almost in School 2's grasp, School 9 produced a stunning comeback to score three quick-fire goals. The celebrations were jubilant and the crushing defeat broke the hearts of the School 2 players.

Congratulations to all players and especially to the deserving winners, School 9!
