Last Friday, a group from Year 5/6 Girls Football Team where invited to compete for a place in the Liverpool Sevens Finals. Despite giving their all they played against some very tough opposition, However, they played some great football and showed lots of determination with fantastic team work and support to each other.
Year 6 Futsall Report On Monday our Year 6 Futsal team took part in the Knowsley Futsal competition. We played 4 games in our group, drawing the first two matches as the children found their feet and got used to the game of futsal and tactics. We fell behind in both matches but showed great perseverance to fight back and equalise in the games., thanks to some great finishing from Max. We went into the next two games knowing that winning them both would put us through and the boys did exactly that, scoring some really nicely worked team goals. This put us through to the semi final as group winners, nothing less than what was deserved. Whiston Willis awaited us in the semi final. We drew the game 2-2 in regular time, after some heroic defending from the opposition. However the lads came flying out the blocks in extra time and scored two goals which put us through to the final 4-2. The final was set, vs St Columbus who had won their respective group. It was a very physical and intense final. They took the lead 1-0 and time was running out. A lovely finish from Harry late on tied the game. The full time score was 1-1, extra time beckoned again. St Columbus again took the lead with a very fortunate ricochet falling their way, but once again we fought back to score a very intuitive goal from the half way line. After some tremendous last ditch defending from the opposition as well as fantastic saves from Alex in our goal, the score remained 2-2 so penalties were needed to determine the winner. St Columbus - goal, Cronton - goal, St Columbus - saved, Cronton - goal, St Columbus - goal. Cronton - the shot was just wide of the bottom post, St Columbus - goal, Cronton - saved. Although we lost the shootout, the lads should not be disappointed, they did tremendous and played the right way. In my opinion and the opinion of many other schools there, they were the best team at the tournament. A credit to themselves and the school. Well done boys. Mr Noblett
Our Year 5/6 Girls Football Team played at Prescot Soccer Centre on Wednesday, in the first round of their league. They unfortunately didn’t win even though they scored a couple of fantastic goals. The girls tried hard and played really well considering it was the first time some of them had played in a football match. They should be very proud of themselves.
Then our Year 5/6 Girls team played their second round of their league matches. They played exceedingly well despite the cold weather. The girls won 2, drew 1 and lost 1. They all payed brilliantly, Player of the Match goes to Ellie S for great attacking and scoring the winning goals. Well done girls I was very proud of how you worked together as a team and how much you have improved your skills. A massive difference from our first set of matches, something you should all be very proud of and a very solid defensive line thanks to Ellie B and Rosie who did amazingly well and the team only conceded one goal from 3 matches. Well done Girls. Thank you to all parents for lifts and support.
On Wednesday our Year 5/6 Boys Football Team took part in the first round of the Prescot League. There was some fantastic play and lots of goals scored.
