YEAR 9 FOOTBALLERS SCOOP AREA CUP!

17 April 2023  |  Jill Lundberg  |  Posted in:

Our Year 9 football team took on Thirsk School in a fiercely contested match for the Area cup. The Year 9s were victorious and won 4-0 with some fantastic goals scored.

The game started out fairly evenly until late in the first half when a corner was whipped in and Isaac Tate headed the ball past the keeper to make the game 1-0.

Into the second half, the Year 9 boys quickly began to assert their dominance, a free kick was won around the halfway line, the instruction was to put the ball on top of the keeper. The free kick was delivered perfectly, Joseph Mawhinney beat the offside trap and headed the ball into the top corner of the net, making the game 2-0.

Quickly afterwards, Richmond School added a third goal. The ball passed back to the right back, Ashley Watson struck the ball from outside the box on the right-hand side of the field, the ball curled and dipped perfectly into the top left corner of the goal, causing hysterics within the team – a wonder goal and a 3-0 lead.

With five minutes to go, the team played some fantastic one-touch football with the majority of the team passing the ball, eventually finding Joseph breaking through the defensive line and smashing the ball beyond the keeper from the edge of the 18-yard box, giving him his second goal and Richmond School their 4th.

Team Manager Harry Beresford said: “The boys played unbelievably well. The character and determination they have shown over the past few weeks in order to reach the final and win has been amazing. I couldn’t be prouder of this team”.
