Match Report: Y7 v Ellesmere College

The Year 7 football team started brightly and made the most of being the home team with Ellesmere taking a few minutes to get into their stride. Zarak Khan and Max Watfa had a host of chances but were repeatedly denied by some strong Ellesmere defending. Max Watfa eventually opened the scoring but this resulted in Ellesmere bursting into life, they threw everything at our defence but Ben Nicholas, Alex Cross and Toby Holland showed great skill and determination to keep them at bay. Unfortunately Ellesmere eventually managed to level the score before both teams added another goal in what was looking like a very even match. Both teams continued to create opportunities but never quite had the run of the ball they needed to get a deciding goal. Eventually it was a rather fortuitous curling corner from Toby Holland, which evaded everyone in the box, snuck in off the post and ultimately decided the final result with only a few minutes to go. I'm sure both teams will be looking forward to the return fixture and another keenly contested match up.
