Match Report by Charlie T ( Cpt )
Southwood 4 v 3 Valence
On Wednesday 10th October Southwood Primary School made the short trip to Valence to play a local Friendly game of Football for Yr6 boys. Southwood kicked off and conceded a goal within the first few minutes but played our way back into the game and scored a couple of goals before half time from Noah & Monabi to lead 2-1 at the break – Valence scored 2 goals straight after half time to lead 3-2 but we never gave up and Monabi scored his second to level 3-3 and with a couple of minutes to go Charlie scored to win the game 4-3
Mr Stevens quoted ‘’ it was a bit scrappy at first but we tried playing passing football and got better and better as the game went on ‘’ – He was very happy with the ‘’Team’’ performance as was My Raybe who was delighted with us on how we played
Man of the Match was Clarence for staying in his position all game and playing really well
