Year 5 & 6 Football Tournament Weyfield School 17/03/2022
We arrived early but nervous. The first match was against Weyfield, the team selection was Theo, Adam, Roni, Lucas, Henry, Harry and Yasser. In the first match, the ball was rarely on our side of the pitch. The goals came from Henry and Harry. Also, because of our excellent midfield, we won the game 2-0.
Next we played against Northmead. Our amazing defence of Ale and Lucas made some amazing tackles. Paulo made some astonishing passes and our front three were excellent, with Harry and Henry scoring goals, with Yasser making the assists with the game ending at 3-0.
Now, were in the quarter- finals against Send.
Theo made some unbelievable saves, everyone was outstanding in this game, with goals coming from Henry and Harry, which made the game 2-0. We believed that we could make it to the final, but next was Weyfield’s better team. Theo made a long pass to Harry and he tapped it in making 1-0, but then Weyfield scored making it 1-1. Harry scored to make it 2-1 and then we were in the final. We made history! We are the first Sandfield team to be in the final of a tournament.
But now it was time, the final. Worplesdon struck first making it 1-0. Harry nearly scored, but it just went over the cross bar, but then Worplesdon scored again. In the last second, Roni made a fantastic clearance off the line and Theo saved the rebound. Then, the final whistle was blown. We had lost, but we still made history. If we didn’t have our amazing attack of Henry, Harry and Yasser, or our astonishing midfield of Paulo and Adam B, or finally our determined defence of Ale, Roni and Lucas and our goalkeeper, Theo, we could not have done it without everyone, including the managers and coaches, Mrs Collins, Coach Raven and Coach Mohammed.
