U11 Football match v Lingfield College – 22nd November

On Wednesday 22nd November, Oakhyrst Grange B Team played Lingfield School B on the astro turf pitch at Oakhyrst Grange. Lingfield brought 9 players and regularly swapped their team around during the match. Our team was made up of Daniel C, Edward B, Joseph F, James T, Mack R and myself.

Oakhyrst Grange took an early lead with a goal from Daniel C and he added another goal shortly afterwards. Edward B brought the score to 3-0 with a good goal before Lingfield pulled it back to 3-1.

In the second half, Daniel C scored a third goal to complete his hat trick, followed up by another goal for Edward B. I then scored a goal to make it 6-1, before Daniel C scored his fourth goal and the match finished at 7-1.

The game was not completely one-sided and Lingfield had a number of attacks. We had to defend well with good performances from Joseph F and James T, while Mack R made some excellent saves to stop them from scoring.

The match was played throughout in a good spirit and everyone had a chance to take part. On this occasion, Oakhyrst Grange was just too strong for Lingfield. Thank you to Miss Dance for arranging and refereeing the match and to all the players on both sides for an enjoyable game.
