Past Fixtures & Results
The year 10 football team played Oxted on Wednesday night in a league match. The game started well as Beacon took control of the match by keeping possession of the ball and creating some good goalscoring opportunities. Jack turned the ball into the net after 15 minutes only for it to be ruled out for offside. Minutes later Oxted took the lead through their first real attempt at goal. Beacon did not let this get their heads down as they searched for an equaliser. It was not long before a hardworking Ronnie took a shot that looped into the far corner to make it 1-1 at half time.
Much of the same for the start of the second half as Beacon were on top. A delightful ball from Tiago set up Jack to finish well past the Oxted keeper to make it 2-1 Beacon. The result stayed at 2-1 as the boys worked hard for one another and produced a fantastic team display. Evan, Nathaniel, and Kai did not let anything past them in defence while Tiago and Luke worked really hard in the centre of midfield to break down play and feed the Beacon attackers who did not stop running all evening.
2 wins in 2 for year 10

Year 7/8 Surrey Cup girls football match
Beacon 4 - Effingham 2
Great win for the girls which means they are in the next round of the cup. The Beacon went 1-0 down to an early goal but composed themselves and went in at half time 2-1 up thanks to goals from Reya and Lilly. The second half was all Beacon and Lily added a third shortly after the break. Effingham made it 3-2 and were pushing for an equaliser when player of the match Reya added to her tally to make it 4-2 and secure the win. The team were superbly managed by year 11 student Lillyella.
Y11 District Netball Tournament
The girls travelled to RAAS for their first matches of the season. The girls faced strong opposition but throughout the tournament showed resilience and fantastic team work. Congratulations to Erin who received player of the match for stepping up and playing out of position. Good luck to the girls in their future league games.
Year 11 hosted the Ashcombe school in the County Cup. This is a competition as a year 9 team reached the semi finals and as year 10 reached the quarter finals before COVID disrupted the cup run.
The game started well and it was if there was never an 18 month gap with the team working well together, passing the ball around and creating fantastic opportunities to score. After 15 minutes Beacon took advantage of the dominance by going 1-0 up courtesy of Ollie. Within 5 minutes the score was 2-0 with a goal the premier league would have been proud of. The ball went out wide to Jacob whose pinpoint cross found Ollie who headed it into the net.
The second half was a close affair but Beacon held on to win 2-0 and go into the next round. Fantastic home support from teachers, parents and students. It is great to have sport back!
