County Cup 2nd round
Beacon 2 Glyn 1
A massive game for the Beacon boys last Friday, playing against a very strong Glyn team. Two local Schools going head to head was always going to make for an exciting match. Both teams started slowly and were struggling to build any momentum. The pitch was damp and the ball was not cutting across the surface. After 25 minutes Beacon started to create some space, and some neat chances created by Will and Josh just could not find the back of the net. Glyn then created some chances of their own and a penalty was awarded that was slotted home putting Glyn in front 1-0. Half time and you could see The Beacon boys really wanted to win this game. After a tactical team talk the boys were back out and started strongly yet again. After some heavy Beacon pressure Will managed to slot one past their keeper and get the game level. There were chances for both teams from open play and set pieces, and the game was tight. Some more fast football and another attack from Beacon resulted in Jack putting another one past the Glyn keeper. 2-1 up and working together the Beacon boys managed the game well and finished up 2-1 winners. Once again extremely proud of each and every one of my boys for their sportsmanship and hard work. Thanks again to our amazing parents that were there to support.

Year 7 v Oxted.
Year 7 had their first home game of the season against Oxted. The girls got off to a great start but Oxted got the better of them taking the lead 3 goals to 2 going into the first break. Great defending from Georgia and Josie in the second quarter gave the girls an opportunity to level the score. A closely fought third quarter meant it was all to play for in the final quarter. Oxted took an early lead but great play in the middle from Izzy and Elena gave the girls the opportunity to draw the score level once again. However, in the final minutes Oxted found their rhythm and ended up winning the game 10 – 6. Player of the match was our Centre Izzy.
Year 7 v St Bedes
Year 7 travelled away for their second fixture hoping to replicate the success of their first game. The girls got off to a great start with Attiya putting the girls into an early lead. However, St Bedes got themselves back into the game by levelling the first quarter 2 points to 2 going into the break. The second and third quarters were just as close leaving nothing between the two sides going into the final quarter. The girls battled hard and showed great team spirit but a late goal from St Bedes in the last minute of the game resulted in St Bedes taking the win, 7 goals to 6.

As the third quarter got under way The Beacon started to dominate with fantastic energy from Captain Izzy, goal chances started to come thick and fast. Heading in for the final break the girls had extended their lead 6 goals to 2. The girls continued to grow in confidence and in the fourth and final quarter extended their lead even further to finish the match 9 goals to 2.
