Phoebe and Leila's shooting was outstanding throughout and the girls racked up the goals. The whole team played well defensively to keep a clean sheet and thoroughly deserved to win. The Player of the match was Leila. Mr M Barnard https://t.co/or5YTMnrIz

Netball Year 7 - Beacon 15 - Reigate 0 The year 7 girls recorded their biggest win of the season so far away at Reigate. Despite the drizzly conditions, The Beacon were sharp and accurate in their passing and defence. https://t.co/iH9qj3Jt5K

A real combative performance from both sides meant it was close until the end when Jacob was put through on goal to make it 2-0 and game over. Beacon now face Glyn or Carshalton Boys in the next round! TGA https://t.co/IwXTbRTTHJ

It was not long before this paid off as Jack's flick at the near post meant the ball dropped nicely for George to spectacularly overhead kick the ball to loop over the goalkeeper to make it 1-0 Beacon; cue Beacon celebrations. https://t.co/bfZtDiJLkK

A few back to back injuries for Beacon meant we changed positions of players which actually allowed us to gain control of key areas of the pitch that Greenshaw had dominated at the start and also launch our own attacks. At half time it was an even 0-0. https://t.co/R4DV7nClr8

The year 11 football team marched on in the Surrey Cup thanks to a hard fought 2-0 victory over Greenshaw. The game started with Greenshaw slightly on top and creating a couple of chances but none to worry Ryan in goal. https://t.co/QcygRLDrkn
