Y2 Wetherby Kensginto Dragons Finton House Tournament
On Friday 22nd March Mr Owen and the dragons took part in the Finton House football Tournament. They started their group losing the first match 2 – 0 but things only got better. The second match they drew 0 – 0 and the final game they won 1 – 0, with captain fantastic Zach scoring the goal and Noah saving the team from a draw with a magnificent diving save. The team finished the group joint second on points but came third on goals scored. This meant that the boys would play one final match in a third place play off, so the fun continued. This match would be the last no matter what the result was, so there was only one thing to do – win! The dragons drew the game 0 – 0, thanks to some brilliant defending from Max. This meant a penalty shoot-out. With Noah the cat in goal Wetherby Kensington knew they had a good chance to win. Zach stepped up first and rocketed his penalty into the net, great power and great placement, then Carter stayed calm and composed to pass his into the bottom corner. At this point it was 2 – 2. Noah made himself a giant to intimidate the opponent and they shot wide of the goal! Noah had it covered anyway as he dived correctly. Up steps Leonardo, if he scores Kensington win. Leonardo went with the power approach and hit the ball as hard as he could nearly breaking the roof of the net. Leonardo and the rest of the team win. A very exciting finish to a day full of hard work and some well-deserved cupcakes (Thanks Mr Abela). Well done Zach, Carter, Noah, Kaplan, Max and Leonardo who represented the school proudly.
