The Beacon School (Year 9) - vs - Overton Grange School
Fixtures & Results
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
