Away Win for Year 8 Football Team

Lister Park Academy 0 v SBSJ 6

player

Last Thursday evening the Year 8 football team played their second league game of the season away at Lister Park Academy and the boys were in confident mood after their previous victory at Queensbury the week before. Again this was a game SBSJ would dominate from the start and they soon began to move the ball around the Lister defence, creating some good early chances.

The first goal came after about 10 minutes when Isa Khan followed in a cross/shot from Kace Rose-Green to convert from close range. Then a succession of corners put pressure on the Lister goal, leading to a second from Kieran O'Brian to head home his first ever goal for the school team!! More good attacking play came down the right wing and another cross/shot from Kace Rose-Green this time looped over the goalkeeper into the far corner of the net. At the point SBSJ were in total control creating chance after chance and just before half time Isa Khan created more havoc in the box with a strong run and was duly brought down for a penalty. Captain James Gallucci confidently stepped forward but unfortunately blazed his kick high and wide over the bar to leave the half time score 3-0.

The second half continued in much the same fashion, with the impressive Jack Leach controlling midfield and after making a good run into the box crashed home SBSJs forth goal of the game. Changes were now been made so every boy got some game time but this didn't stop the momentum and Kace Rose-Green scored the goal of the game and another good dribble towards the box he delightfully chipped the goalkeeper! The final goal came in the last few minutes when man of the match Jack Leach followed up a cleared corner to volley in his second and SBSJs sixth goal.

2 games, 2 wins, 18 goals and none conceded has been a brilliant start and its great to see the boys enjoying their football again. However a much tougher test awaits tomorrow when we face Thornton Grammar at home.
