Five Pits Football Competition
10 October 2018 (by Children Stonebroom (Children of Stonebroom))
Last Thursday, Stonebroom football team took on Heath Primary school and won 5-2.
We conceded a soft penalty early on and our heads briefly went down. However, we then played some really good football. Armando crossed the ball to Bailey who shot from outside the box and scored with his right foot.
Just before half time, Armando was fouled so we got a free kick just outside the box. Michael scored the amazing free kick. At half time, the score was 2-1 to us.
At the start of the second half, we had a corner kick. Michael took the kick, crossed to Armando and he headed it in Heath’s net. We were now 3-1 up.
It wasn’t long before we were 4-1 up. Stonebroom played some really good football, got to the edge of the box and Bailey scored.
We were so pleased but the game wasn’t over. Heath scored a scrambled goal, poking the ball passed goalkeeper Kai. Not long after though, Kai came to the rescue, making an amazing save which kept us at 4-2.
Throughout the game, we had some very good balls up the line from Carter and Kian. We also had some terrific defending from Troy and Millie which helped keep us in front.
This helped us to score our fifth as a superb clearance from Millie helped Michael to play an amazing ball to Armando. He took on the goal keeper and smashed it at the goal! It was a superb end to an amazing match.
We would like to say a massive thank you to Paul (or Dad!) for giving up his time to help take us to the match and coach us through it. Thanks also to Devon’s parents for supporting us.
Our next game is on our school field. Please come and watch us. Kick-off is at 4 o’clock.
Finally…… we are top of the league, say we are top of the league!
Bailey, Millie & Armando
