Football - U9 A VII vs South Lee
The undefeated under 9 A football team travelled to South Lee for their final match of term. This is often a tricky fixture due to the long period of time spent on the bus. This proved to be the case with the boys finding themselves two goals down inside the first 5 minutes. As the boys slowly found their feet they started to create some opportunities. It was R Holt who found the net towards the end of the first half to get Holmwood back into the game. The second half saw Holmwood shooting down the slope which was all part of the plan. This helped and a F Oliver penalty put Holmwood back on level terms. A goal soon after as a result of following in after a cross was scored again by F Oliver. With about six minutes to go the boys undefeated season was looking on. However, a fantastic header from a corner looped back over the entire defence and evaded the out stretched arms of K Hashmi in goal to bring the scores level. It was again the outstanding F Oliver who delivered with a crisp strike from outside the area to secure the win for Holmwood.
Well done boys a fantastic result and a great game to cap a brilliant first term of sport in the prep school.
