The Beacon School (Year 8)
Fixtures & Results
The Year 8 football team were invited to our first ever futsal competition over at Carshalton Boys Sports College. For those of you that are unsure of what futsal is, it is similar to indoor football, but is played with a heavier ball, and the rules make it much more fast paced. The boys got off to a fantastic start and had 3 games to play. Game 1 was a solid 1-0 victory VS Wimbledon College. Game 2 was a frustrating one, with Beacon having all the possession and striking the post 3 times! The game finished 0-0. This meant we needed a win against the hosts to secure a place in the finals. Beacon started well and hit the bar after a few seconds, quickly followed up with a 1-0 lead. 10 seconds with a lapse in concentration resulted in 2 quick fire goals from CBSC and the game finished with a 2-1 loss. The boys represented the school fantastically well, and lived up to the high expectations we have as a footballing school.
