Football Match Report: Abbey Gate College vs Kings School

A strong home cup win for Abbey Gate College Year 7 boys against Kings School started with both teams giving as good as they got

An excellent Reece Munro run and cross saw Alex O’Hare open the scoring after 10 minutes. King's soon equalised after a goalmouth melee and the home team were lucky to go in at half-time with the lead after another deep cross was deflected in by a Kings defender. At half-time the score was 2-1.

The second half saw Abbey Gate College dominate from early on and after Harry Holt scored a rebound from close range further goals were scored on a regular basis. The driving force of everything from midfield was Reece Munro who scored a second half hat-trick to seal a convincing win as well as second goal for Alex O’Hare.

The home defence held strong in the second half and Paris Laithwaite in goal made a number of important saves and his long clearances constantly put the home team back on the attack. Hugh Parry and Aidan McCleary were a solid foundation in defence in an excellent all round team performance.

Final Score:
AGC: 7
Kings School: 1
