Year 9 - Cup Success

 

The Year 9 Football team had their cup final tonight against RAAS and it was an absolute nail biter!  The game started quickly with Beacon putting together some fantastic passes, creating two early one on ones that were both well saved by the RAAS keeper.  Beacon continued to pile on the pressure until the opposition midfielder popped up in our 18 yard box with a snap shot that found the bottom corner.  It came as a shock to the Beacon boys but still they continued to keep possession and get in behind the RAAS defenders.

RAAS then doubled their lead with yet another volley from a midfielder which came completely against the run of play.  RAAS had taken their chances fantastically scoring two shots from two goals.  The Beacon boys dug deep and started to really pile on the pressure. Jake Williams fired in a dangerous ball from a corner which was met by Jack Schofield with a glancing header.  All of a sudden there was a second goal from Callum Mallows with a well-placed shot into the corner. Half time with the game tied at 2-2.

Beacon came out flying once again with substitute and goal machine Josh Edwards managing to get a goal to make it 3-2.  RAAS quickly countered with a well struck penalty to put the score at 3-3.  The last 20 minutes turned a good performance into an outstanding one with Josh and Jack both getting another goal each to seal the deal, final score 5-3.

Special mention goes to man of the match Joe Costella for his inspiring performance in defense for Beacon, he was absolutely solid!  Another football season comes to an end with another set of medals for the hard working boys in Year 9 at The Beacon.  Yet again I finish the season on a high and couldn’t be prouder of the boys.  Thank you again to all the parents that joined us and once again for all of your fantastic support.

Come on Beacon!!
