The Year 7 football team produced a gutsy performance against Commonweal to secure their place as the top side in Swindon last night. They got off to a terrific start with an opportunist goal from Lewis N, who stuck from distance. An early lead was just what the doctor ordered. Within the opening 10 mins Baafour A put us 2 nil up with a class finish off his left foot.
It looked like the game was in the bag as Lewis N saw his worldy disallowed. An outside of the boot curl to the top corner. Unfortunately the ball hit the overhead wire which resulted in a drop ball.
Then disaster stuck. We took our foot off the gas and Commonweal snatched a well taken goal just before half time, so 2 – 1.
We started well with Kye B running the show from midfield. No goals though. Commonweal scored again to level it. Most teams would have struggled to turn it around. Not LPA. We have been there before. The boys dug in and Lewis N scrambled in the ball after some great hassling.
We held out for a final score of 3 – 2.
The future looks bright.
MOM: Lewis N
Congrats to Kye B, Matthew L and Lewis N for being selected for Swindon school boys trials.
