The Beacon School (Year 9) - vs - Royal Alexander & Albert School
Fixtures & Results
A game for the Year 9 football team has been long overdue but on 14.2.19 the squad travelled to Royal Alexander and Albert School for their first league game of 2019. It was clear from the outset that the team hadn’t played together for some time as the passing was sloppy, opportunities in front of goal were scuffed and every 50:50 was going in favour of the home team. It wasn’t surprising therefore that it wasn’t too long before Beacon found themselves in the unusual position of being a goal down. Beacon really struggled to get into the game and the half time whistle couldn’t come soon enough. To call upon an old cliché, what a game of two halves this proved to be. The boys were given very clear instructions to not stop running and to battle for every ball that was there to win….and battle they did! RAAS did not know what hit them in the second half and it was clear that the tide had changed in favour of Beacon. RAAS were completely outsmarted and outplayed by a much more determined team. In a second half that saw Billy in goal only touch the ball a handful of times and a goal from Tom and Jack saw Beacon walk away eventual winners in what was a great game to watch.
