Queen Emma’s beat North Leigh 5-2
Thursday 2nd November 2017
Match Report by Edward Bee
This was our second match of the league, having lost to Ducklington 7-2 before half term. The game started well with us in possession for most of the first ten minutes. Milton had a run from the half way line, passed to Ollie, who crossed for Milton, who scored! Milton then scored his second goal thanks to some great tackling from Jacob.
At halftime we talked with Mr Crouch about positioning and some more tactics. North Leigh came out in the second half and scored from a penalty within 2 minutes. Within seconds of the kickoff they had the ball in our net again, despite a good effort from me to save it. The score was now 2-2! We had a lot of work to do. Following some substitutions and a change of tactics, we were ready to attack again.
There was some great football played by Sophie, Dylan, Mohammed and Ollie (we looked like Barcelona!) We finally got our third goal from Ollie, who hit a strike into the top corner. Next Milton the hat-trick hero scored his third and our fourth.
Finally our best goal of the match (you can see it on our Sports Twitter page www.twitter.com/QEPSport) was the last one, great play from Ollie who took on 3 players, passed it out to Milton who crossed for Jacob to score. We didn’t concede again thanks to some brilliant defending from Thomas and Jacob.
Thank you to Mrs Stevens, Mr Crouch and Mr Olive.
