Inter School Football Tournament Friday 21st March

The afternoon began with our first match St Anthony’s versus St Francis’s. In this match, St Francis had most of the possession, possibly due to their height as to me they looked as tall as my dad! They demonstrated lots of skill on the ball resulting in a 5-0 win. Our team were just warming up though!

In our second match we played St Anthony’s Shipley. With memory of the earlier defeat still in our minds we knew we had to take control from kick off. Our team worked hard in all areas on the pitch. With strikes from Emerson and Harvey, St Anthony’s Clayton had their first win of the afternoon.

Our third match began well and soon we were 1 up thanks to Harry’s great header but very soon St Mathews scored and the match was level at 1-1. Demonstrating team spirit we soon got a free kick which was taken by Emerson and with a great pass to Harvey he took a kick at goal. It was unclear from the side line if the ball had gone over the line but St Matthews’ goal keeper was very honest and showed true sportsmanship by confirming it had crossed the line. Final score 2-1 to St Anthony’s, hooray!

After two convincing wins St Anthony’s Clayton were announced the team In third place. An enjoyable afternoon was had by the team and we would like to say a special thank you to Mrs Price for giving us the opportunity to take part in the football tournament. We are already looking forward to the next event and especially the afternoon out of school!
