The Beacon Year 8 football team go marching on into the semi-final of the County Cup!
The Beacon travelled to Winston Churchill School in Woking to play the quarter final of the County Cup. The game started well as The Beacon put Winston Churchill under pressure early on in the game. Jack and Freddie’s pace caused the Winston Churchill defence some problems. It wasn’t long before another through ball was played into Freddie who finished calmly; 1-0 Beacon.
The Beacon started to control the game with some lovely passing moves and combative midfield displays from Freddie, Sonny and Olly. Just before half time The Beacon extended their lead as Jack made it 2-0.
After the break, Winston Churchill changed formation to match The Beacon and scored quite quickly to make it 2-1. The boys were put under some pressure but continued to work hard and stick to our principles. Both teams had their chances second half but a superb display from The Beacon kept it at 2-1.
Well done to the entire squad for reaching the last 4 in the County. It is a fantastic achievement! Thank you to Winston Churchill for hosting and The Beacon parents for their support.
Final Score: Winston Churchill 1-2 The Beacon
Men of the Match: Alfie and Jack
