STONEYGATE 2 GRACE DIEU 2
SCORERS: James K and Dylan I
The year 4 football team started their season against a strong Grace Dieu side at home on a glorious day for football. The team consisted of Harrry H (Captain), Will W, Harris A, Edward N, James K, Dylan I, Freddie C, Seb A and Arush B.
Stoneygate played very well. They tackled brilliantly, held their positions and passed the ball with great accuracy. Their ability to control and turn with the ball was outstanding. Stoneygate scored two great first half goals through James K, with a thunderous left foot shot, and Dylan I, with a first time volley from a cross. Grace Dieu replied through two break a way goals by the same player who was a constant threat during the first half. With Freddie C causing all sorts of problems for the Grace Dieu defence and Harry H always looking to tackle the majority of attacks were at the Grace Dieu goal.
Half time 2-2
The second half required much more defending and this was lead by Harris A. He was helped magnificently by Ed N. Arush B came on for the second half along with a Year 3 Seb A and both battled hard. Will W in goal was called more into the action and made some fine saves. The game ended in a draw and was entertaining for the many parents who attended. Both teams played in the correct spirit and the endeavour and skill was in great supply.
Full time 2-2
Champagne Moment went to Dylan I for his sweet first time volley from a cross – a very difficult skill.
Man of the Match went to Harris A for a brilliant game in defence and his never say die attitude even when he injured himself in a tackle.
Thanks to all the parents who attended and witnessed a great afternoon of football from the eight boys in Year 4!
