Year 9 Football - vs Oxted
Beacon 2 - 1 Oxted
The year 9 team travelled to Oxted for their second game of the season. It was a closely fought game against a very well organised Oxted side. Both teams took time to adjust to the speed of the surface and The Beacon struggled to get control of the game. Just before half time Finn put Beacon 1-0 up with a superb volley from distance that sneaked into the corner. The Beacon played much better in the second half and had lots of chances to extend their lead. Eventually Joe seized onto a through ball and was clear on goal when he was hacked down by the Oxted centre back. The referee pointed straight to the spot. Finn stepped up and rolled in calmly into the bottom corner, sending the keep the other way. Oxted scored late on, but it was too little too late and The Beacon held on for a 2-1 win.
Man of the Match went to Mo for his excellent defensive display in central midfield. Special mention to Finn for his two goals, and Joe for his work-rate all game as the lone striker.
