Football A Team v Grundisburgh

On Thursday 8th November, our school football team (the A team) went to Grundisburgh Primary to play their team. The game kicked off and shortly Kai H put us in the lead. It was a wonderful strike from the edge of the area that went through the goalkeeper’s legs. Soon, we were caught on the attack and they forced Harry S to make an outstanding save. Then the half time whistle blew and we were given a team talk from Nigel – our manager. Feeling great we went back on the field to start the 2nd half. About 5 minutes into the 2nd half, Matthew whipped a corner in which resulted in an own goal from the Grundisburgh defender. Shortly after, Kai H played a through ball for Riley H who then slotted a low shot past the keeper. Feeling in high spirits, we were caught out by two through balls that they then went on to score from both. The final score was Woodbridge 3 Grundisburgh 2.
