Year 8 Football

Mounts Bay Academy vs Pool Academy

On Thursday 29th January  the Year 8 football team, coached by Mr Lawrence, took on a resilient Pool Academy team. The game started at 4:00. The whistle blew and Mounts Bay started the game with the advantage of  the wind. Pasha Wilson played a good through ball to Mawgan Kewn to chase onto. He tried to take it around the keeper but the keeper took Mawgan down and a penalty was awarded. Ellis Hart stepped up and slotted the ball home, the keeper had no chance! Two more goals came in quick succession and Mounts Bay went into the second half 3-0 up.

The second half commenced with Pool looking like a better side. They kept possession but a bad back pass to the keeper was chased down by Oakley Blackhall and a deflection made the score 4-0. More goals came flying in from Ellis Hart and Eli Williams. With a minute to go Harry Hocking slammed the ball home to make the overall score 7-0. It was a great win for the year 8 boys in the County Cup.

The team: Harris Eddy,Matt Roberts Harry Hocking. Harley Hicks,  Noah Brunson, Tyler Roberts, Pasha Wilson, Oakley Blackhall, Leva Siney, Harry Read,Eli Williams, Mawgan Kewn and Ellis Hart
