Year 9 football match report
On a wet Thursday 13th February the Year 9 football team played Overton Grange in the 4th Round of the Surrey Cup. The game started well as both teams tried to get used to the wet conditions. Despite this, both teams tried to still play a passing game which was nice to see. Overton started well and looked strong all over the park as they tried to put passes in behind the defence for their quick strikers to run onto. The back three marshalled this well to ensure Alfie had a quiet afternoon. Midway through the first half, The Beacon started to get on top and camp in Overton’s half, putting pressure on the Overton defence. Some excellent passing moves down the left flank through George and Freddie ended with Sonny striking from outside the box and deflecting into the far corner; 1-0 Beacon.
The message at half time was ‘whoever wants this more will win this.’ The second half began with Beacon motivated to secure this victory. After some excellent pressing play, George then chipped a delightful long pass over the defence for Freddie to run onto and finish clinically to make it 2-0 Beacon. Shortly after this Luis went through on goal, again from nice build up play to finish really well to make it 3-0. Beacon were firing on all cylinders as they went on search for more. A corner this time, came into the box for Jacob to smash home and make it 4-0. With a few minutes left on the clock, man of the match George showed again his class as he assisted Luis for his second of the game and Beacon’s fifth. Hard tackles from Harry, Alfie M, Sonny, Ollie and Jacob showed a real combative spirit and trickery from Luis, Taylor, George and Freddie meant Beacon we unstoppable. Beacon go marching on into the quarter finals
Final Score: Overton Grange 0-5 Beacon
Thank you to Beacon parents for their support and Overton Grange for hosting.

Y8 Netball V Caterham
The Y8s travelled to Caterham for their second fixture of the year. They faced strong competition from a well trained Caterham. The girls played some great netball and worked well as a team but unfortunately lost 15-3.
Well played to all.
Y9 Netball 4th Feb District Tournament at RAAS.
After a tough loss last week the girls travelled back to RAAS for the district tournament.
First round opponents were RAAS B. The girls came out with a lot of fight wanting to prove that last weeks game was just a blip. With great defensive work from Georgia and Lizze the first game was a 1 all draw.
The girls took this confidence into the second round were they were up against Oxted B. The girls set the pace in the 2nd game with Erin and Izzy making their mark scoring 6 between them to win the game 6-1.
The next game was against Woldingham B who took an early 1-0 lead. However, great team work and communication from both Daisy’s and Maddie in the middle lead to many goal opportunities for Erin and Lucy. The girls took the game in the end 3-1.
Full of confidence and belief the girls faced old rivals Oakwood in the final round. The girls had previously lost to Oakwood before Christmas in a league game. Oakwood came out fast and took an early 3-0 lead. However, great team work from Lucy and Izzy in the goal D meant the Beacon scored one back going into half time. Great support from the side lines and defending from Georgia and Lizze resulted in Beacon controlling the second half and coming from behind to win the final match 5-3.
It was a nervous wait as the points were counted and goal difference was calculated.
The results were in and the girls had taken the win!
Congratulations to all girls that took part!
The year 9 football team played Warwick in the league. The boys turned up with a professional attitude and warmed up well; this was going to be a great performance.
The Beacon started brightly and passed the ball well from side to side and created good opportunities to score. A great move from Alfie to Jacob set up Sonny to strike the ball from 25 yards into the far corner; 1-0 Beacon.
Into the second half and a long pass from Alfie B set up a 1 on 1 for Luis to score into an empty net; 2-0 Beacon. The boys continued to launch attacks and it wasn’t long before Ollie turned in a Jack shot to make it 3-0. George’s trickery down the left hand side was too hot to handle. The full back committed a foul to leave a free kick the edge of the area. Ollie did what he did last match and strike the ball cleanly to hit top corner and 4-0 Beacon. With the last kick of the game, Ollie was put through to slot home and make it 5-0.
Final score: Warwick 0-5 Beacon
Thank you to Warwick for hosting and Beacon parents for their support
Year 10 Football vs Riddlesdown
The Year 10 football team played Riddlesdown Collegiate in a Surrey Cup Game. With the pitch being very wet and muddy, the boys had a great start with a dominant performance. This quickly followed with a great goal from Tom who slotted the ball in the bottom corner to make the game 1-0.
The Beacon continued to work hard and were searching for another goal. Unfortunately, with a good display of football by Riddlesdown, The Beacon conceded two goals. With 5 minutes before the final whistle, The Riddlesdown keeper made an error resulting in the ball passing his line to make the game 2-2.
The Beacon stepped up for the penalty shoot-out confident in their performance so far. A great save from Billy to start the shoot-out off, followed by strong penalties from Sam, Billy and Ollie. Unfortunately, it wasn’t meant to be with Riddlesdown stealing the win 6-5.
An incredible performance from The Beacon against a very strong and successful side. All the boys should be very proud with how they played.
Y9 Netball 28th Jan v RAAS.
It was the first match for the girls after the Christmas break and they got off to a shakey start losing the first quarter. However, the girls fought back with excellent link up play in the middle between Daisy, Erin and Maddy. Although, this was short lived as RAAS proved to be the stronger team towards the end. Final score 15 – 4 to RAAS.
