Match Report: Y8 v Ellesmere College

A keenly contested game where fortunes fluctuated. The college started brightly and an excellent run and cross by Luca Warwick saw Jack Scaife head in strongly at the far post after 5 minutes. The dominance in the first half saw Luca and Harry Green both unfortunate not to extend the lead. It took a Dan Pittard-Wheeler thunderbolt free kick to extend the lead at half time from 25 yards out: 2-0.

Ellesmere responded in the second half and pulled a goal back before equalising with a 20 yard screamer into the top corner. Driven on by Kitt Baker and Alex Stewart the boys wrestled back the advantage and Luca Warwick was bundled over for a penalty with 5 minutes to go. Luca dusted himself off to dispatch the winning penalty for a well-deserved win when the boys played controlled and well-disciplined football.

Final Score:

AGC: 3
