Invicta v MGGS Football Match
On Monday, 13 March, the Invicta Boys team travelled to MGGS for a well-awaited football match. The game kicked off and the Invicta boys got off to a good start, with Matt Spry coming close to scoring 2 or 3 times but the MGGS keeper making great saves. It did not take long for Invicta to break the deadlock through a cracking strike from James Brooker, straight into the top right-hand corner of the goal. MGGS then had their chance to score but thanks to Anu and Angel’s solid defensive work, they were able to cut out that chance. The second goal from Invicta came from a beautiful through ball from the midfield up to Matt, who calmly took it round the keeper and tapped the ball into the net. Unfortunately, the next action in the game was a bad one, Matt was one on one with the goalkeeper and once again took it round him, but as the keeper dived to get the ball, unfortunately he hit his head on Matt’s knee. It was at this point half time was called.
The second half began and Invicta scored almost instantaneously through Josh Kamara but was helped into the goal by their centre-back. One minute later, the referee deemed the keeper unfit to carry on, consequently calling the match off. The final score was a 3-0 win to Invicta. A great effort after only their second match.
Thank you to all the supporters who came to watch our match and to Tia Walby for being a great referee! We hope the goal keeper made a full recovery. Thank you Miss Abbott for sending us the report and for supporting the students
