The Beacon School (U15)
Fixtures & Results
Year 9/10 Surrey Schools Futsal Competition
Today was the first ever U15 futsal competition and The Beacon boys were excited, but also apprehensive as this was a sport that they had very little experience in playing. We entered a team for this competition because of the amount of amazing technically gifted footballers that we have here at The Beacon, and this being a game of skill and quick feet, we knew it was made for us! We had 4 games to play and after 3 convincing victories we were guaranteed a place in the finals. We were up against an outstanding Richard Challoner team in the finals, that had been impressive throughout the tournament. The final finished 1-1 after a dramatic equaliser from Joe. The final was to be decided on penalties consisting of 3 each. Both keepers pulled off fantastic saves and this meant sudden death as both teams scored 2 out of their 3. Thankfully, the Beacon boys held their nerve and we came out winners 5 4 on penalties! The standard of play from our team was outstanding and as always, their behaviour was exemplary. Jake gets the man of the tournament for scoring 6 goals and helping himself to the golden boot. Special mention also to Jack and Ethan as the only 2 Year 9s at a tournament consisting of only Year 10s. Surrey Schools finals day to follow in March. Come on Beacon!
