Year 7 - Cup Success
After being crowned league winners only a week ago, The Beacon Year 7 Football team were on the field again to play the District Cup Final against Oxted School.
Oxted won the toss and the first half began on a breezy afternoon. The Beacon boys started well, moving the ball around nicely and spreading the play. The Oxted keeper was called into action early saving attempts from Freddie Smith and Ollie Tully.
The Beacon pressed well and made it difficult for the opposition to get out of their own half. The hard work was paid off when Freddie Taylor opened the scoring with a low hard drive into the back of the net. The balance of possession turned into Oxted’s favour and The Beacon defence needed to remain solid whilst Oxted attempted to break through. Jacob Evans (Captain) and his defence stood firm and the the first half ended 1-0.
A strategic team talk saw The Beacon start the second half on the front foot and smart midfield play from George Thompson and Freddie Smith saw Sonny Davies double The Beacon’s lead. Further chances came from both sides as end to end football was on display. A Beacon corner led to a goal mouth scramble, which saw Jamie Anear bundle the ball across the line. Leading 3-0. The Beacon boys then put on a fine display, keeping possession well and creating further chance. Sonny Davies added to his goal tally before Ollie Tully, who had a superb game in the centre of midfield was able to reward his efforts with a goal. The Beacon put more pressure on the weakened Oxted defence and Freddie Taylor scored a deserved second goal to take the game well out of reach and finish 6-0.
Jacob Evans lifted the trophy to huge applause from the many travelling supporters.
Unbeaten in the league and cup isn’t bad is it ;)
Well done to the squad on a fantastic season full of success.
