St. Andrews Inter School Football Tournament - Tuesday 15th November
On Tuesday 14th November our Year 4 Football team travelled to St. Andrews school to compete in the school’s annual inter school Football tournament.
The team won their opening game by 1 goal and moved onto the next game with excitement. The teams confidence shone through in the second game as they won 4 – 0.
This meant Sythwood had won their group and progressed to the final against Barnsbury Primary School.
After a very fast start by Barnsbury, Sythwood found themselves 2 goals down at half time. The second half started and Sythwood got themselves back in the game early and then secured a late equaliser.
5 minutes of Golden Goal was played and with both teams unable to find the net after hitting the goalposts and crossbar respectively the game was to be decided by penalties.
After 2 excellent saves from Sythwood’s goalie Alfie and 4 very well taken penalties, Sythwood had won their first ever tournament!
‘Every single player contributed to this win and we were very proud to see them all working so hard for each other. They all should be very proud of themselves. Our goalie Alfie made some amazing saves to keep us in the final and the player of the tournament Kamil was outstanding in defence’ Sam & Luke (Coaches)
