Yr 5 Football v Cleves - 4.11.16

This was probably our toughest match yet.  We all worked as a team and scored some great goals but either team could have won.  It was horrible weather but we enjoy playing for our school.  

I think we surprised Cleves in the first half by how well we played as they led 2-1.  Then straight after the break we equalized and made it 2-2.  Towards the end after a tough, challenging game we began to get tired and conceded a few goals.

Jack was outstanding in goal and made some great saves.
Nicholas and Richard were solid at the back, keeping it tight
Damian, Luca and Lucas tackled well and did some fabulous passing in midfield and having the occasional short.
Oscar and Sean made attacking runs down the wing, shooting at every opportunity.
Lenny was on fire up front, scoring a two goals and going close on other occasions

To summarise, we played well and enjoyed the match but next time we will be playing to win!

Team: Jack (GK), Richard, Nicholas, Lucas, Damian, Luca, Lenny, Subs: Sean, Oscar
