Beacon 2 – Warlingham 1

Beacon travelled to a very cold and blustery Warlingham School on Tuesday to face a team that had mixed results in the league this year. Beacon started poorly and some very sloppy defending lead to a well taken header from a corner from Warlingham. However, this is what Beacon needed to get them started. Although not a pretty first half, some strong performances in the middle of the pitch from Dan and Will allowed Beacon to gain some possession, threading the ball to Sonnie who placed it comfortably in the back of the net. The second half was very much Beacon’s and apart from a couple of shots on target, Warlingham never really threatened Jacob in goal. At the mid way point of the half, Tom, on his return from injury, found himself in front of goal and confidently put Beacon ahead. Man of the match performance goes to Ben for a solid performance at the back.

Beacon 6 – Oxted 0

Today we played the team that we beat in last years cup final so we knew it was going to be a tough game however when you are awarded (and score) a penalty within the first five minutes of a game, you couldn’t ask for a better way to settle the nerves. From that moment on, Beacon dominated the game in all aspects. This wasn’t your typical Beacon Year 9 game where it usually takes about twenty minutes before Beacon realise they are there to play football, this was a full on performance from minute one. The boys threw everything at Oxted and dividends paid off and a second goal from jack meant the Beacon went into half time 2-0. The second half continued very much in the same way as the first and as Oxted started to tire, Beacon used the opportunity to apply more pressure. Soon enough, another two goals from Jack, a tap in from Sonnie and a well stuck shot from outside of the box from Will saw Beacon put Oxted to the sword and win 6-0. Well done boys

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.

The Year 9 boy’s football team played their second game of the week on September 18th and for the first time this season played on home soil. They faced Reigate School in the league, a team they beat comfortably last year. With injuries and illnesses still plaguing the squad, this would be a difficult game and this proved to be the case. The first half was a well contested battle with opportunities presenting themselves to both teams but it was Beacon that took advantage of some neat passing allowing Tom to score the opener, his seventh goal in three games. The rest of the half proved uneventful. A pep talk at half time, reminding the boys how well they played earlier in the week seemed to be what the boys needed. The second half was much more productive and Beacon stated going through the gears and creating space and opportunities that didn’t exist in the first half. A goal from Alfie came at exactly the right time and it took the wind out of Reigate sails. As Reigate started to press further up the pitch looking for their own goal, Beacon took advantage and a counter attack saw Sonnie in a one on one opportunity with the keeper. Sonnie was deliberately taken out by the keeper and a penalty was awarded. Sonnie steps up….Goal! The dying minutes saw one last counter attack and a well crossed ball from eventual man of the match player, Sam W. saw Louie on the receiving end and toe poking a goal at the far post. 3 games, 3 wins. 17 goals scores, 0 conceded. What a start to the season.

Beacon started their Surrey Cup campaign yesterday with an away match at Three Rivers Academy, Hersham.  This is the first of two matches this week and with a couple of injuries and rested players there were some small changes to the starting line-up.  The game started brightly and Beacon were one-nil up within the space of a couple of minutes after Dan tapped in a goal from a well floated corner. Just like last week, the opening goal set the precedence for the rest of the game in which Beacon absolutely dominated possession and territory for large proportions of the match.  In what can only be described as some of the best football I have seen from this football team, Beacon passed the ball around, spraying it from left to right and making Three Rivers work hard.  Beacon scored another goal, this time from Tom and the team looked comfortable for the rest of the half.  Poor Billy in goal had to do what he could to keep warm as he stood watching the half being played up the other end of the pitch. The second half saw Beacon continue to dominate and further goals added from Jack J and sealing his second hat-trick is just as many games, Tom.  The final score of 5-0 did not necessarily reflect the performance on the pitch and credit must be given to the opposition goalie for keeping the score as low as it was.  Well done Beacon, and rest up before tomorrow’s league game against Reigate School.

The Year 9 boy’s football team began the defence of their league title this week. On Monday they travelled to De Stafford School and began the game on a very positive note.  Within the space of 10 minutes, Beacon were 2-0 ahead through well-taken goals from Jack and Tom.  Beacon dominated possession in the first half, playing simple passing football that saw them double their lead to 4-0 by another goal from Tom as well as Sam S.  The half time break couldn’t come quick enough for De Stafford as they were finding it increasingly difficult to maintain possession or territory for any real length of time.  The second half was a mirror image of the first in terms of domination from Beacon.  A third goal from Tom saw him seal his hat-trick and three further goals from Sam S., Sam W., and Dan meant that Beacon finished 8 – 0 winners!  In reality, the man of the match award could have been given to anyone of the boys that played, however, the honours were given to Tom for three well taken goals and 3 assists.  A superb start to the new season.  Well done boys!
