Progress for 1st XI football team

Posted In Sport

The 1st XI football team played Battle Abbey School on Thursday 14th February. In a very competitive first half, Harry Morgan scored an excellent goal to lead 1-0. Both teams had further attacks with keepers and defenders playing very well to deny any additional goals.

Battle equalised but a quick response from our players resulted in excellent pressure on the battle defence and a fine strike from captain Ralph Gerard Cross nestling on the top corner. The second half saw both sides creating many goal scoring chances. With the clock ticking Battle eventually drew level with a long range effort and took a 3-2 lead after a dribbling run and excellent finish from their central midfield player.

It was a really good match with all players fully committed. Special mentions go to Ralph Gerard Cross, Joe Brinton and Jack Bartram, who played a full match after returning from injury.
