Today one of our best school league final took place on our school pitch. We started in October and now it’s all over. A great win for Jody. Before the analysis here are the teams.
Josh was the favourite to win which meant Jody was the underdog. But he proved us all wrong by beating a very good side. The match got off to a slow start with Hollie getting the first score. Jody made some great saves in the first half by flicking the sliotar away on the goal line. At half time the score was split 0-2 to 0-1 to Josh’s team.
The second half got off to a great start as both of the captains came outfield. After a while Josh got tired and he went back on goal. But that never stopped him from scoring. He made a lovely shot as he hit the sliotar high in the sky and it lobbed over the goalkeeper, Hannah, and it went in the goal. At this point Jody was two points down and he needed some scores. And then his wish came true. Jody struck the ball and it sailed into the back of the net. And then he scored two great points which sealed the victory. A great all round performance by both teams. Jody and his team can celebrate that win as they get free homework tonight. I say the man of the match would have to go to……………………….Jody because he gave a great performance after coming from two points down to three points up. And also dont forget all those maraculous saves he made.
I leave you with the scorers and the team lineouts.
Josh: 1-2 Jody:1-5
