10th November 2022 - Y8 Football St Joseph's vs Trevelyan

A Year 8 squad down to the barebones of their team hosed Trevelyan of Windsor in what would be an extremely competitive game.

St Joseph's played the majority of the football passing the ball around well in the midfield but often the attack would fizzle out with out a final product. Andreus took it upon himself to have a long range effort and test the keeper. This effort managed to sneak its way into the far right hand side of the goal 1-0.

The Trevelyan defense held up well, refusing access into their box. This lead Fabian to have a long rage effort and again find the corner of the goal 2-0.

After a push back from the Trevelyan  team the half finished 2-2.

The 2nd half was a tight contest, with the majority of the football being played in the middle of the park. Jean-Marie made some crucial covering tackles to keep the Trevelyan out of striking distance. As the pressure mounted Kingsley kept the ball out of the St Joseph’s net.

Late on in the second half Olivier found the ball in some space and struck it towards goal. The ball flew past the keeper and into the net. This put St Josephs ahead 3-2.

The final minutes played out with some strong attacks from both teams but neither able to find the end product.

FT 3-2 St Joseph’s

Goal scorers: Andreus, Fabian and Olivier

MOM: Fabian

20th October 2022 - Y8 Football St Joseph's vs Beechwood

With great pressure and early shots on target, St Joseph’s seemed to take the upper hand in the opening encounters. Beechwood defense finally cracked when Kosi managed to get down the wing and zip a ball across goal, tapped in by Alex to open the scoring 1-0 St Joseph's.

Almost straight away Beechwood attacked and equalized. 1-1

The first half showed great determination and grit by all players involved, goal scoring opportunities made by both teams, Kingsley making key saves to keep St Joseph’s level going into the half.

In the second half followed much of the first, a stalemate, the two teams nullifying each other’s attacking threats.

20th October 2022 - Y9 Football St Joseph's vs Beechwood

A flat start to the Year 9s second game this year. A miscommunication at the back left Kye steering the ball past his own goalkeeper, Gabi, into his own net. 1-0 Beechwood.

Beechwood applied pressure to the St Joseph’s team but they didn’t crack. Great defensive efforts from David. Finally a fantastic fingertip save by Gabi, deflected the ball out to an oncoming Beechwood attacker and he placed it home into the net to put Beechwood up 2-0.

Gabi Spotted an opportunity to put a long ball in over the defense and let Jovan run onto it, Jovan gathers the ball in behind the defense and slides it around the keeper to make it 2-1 going into the half, giving St Joseph’s a fighting chance in the second.

Early on in the second half, Albi threads the needle though the defense to get Jovan in behind with just the goalkeeper to beat, he does this with ease to bring St Joseph’s level with the majority of the 2nd half to play.

After a long stalemate, both teams playing extremely physical form of football more similar to rugby. Beechwood managed to get the ball into the St Joseph’s box, it pinballed around before a Beechwood player managed to steer it towards to goal and into the back of the net. 3-2 Beechwood.

With each team giving all in each challenge, trying to win the ball back for their team. It was the final moments of the 2nd half, St Joseph’s had been awarded a corner. All players crammed into the box. The ball flashed across the face of the goal begging to be put into the back of the net but no St Joseph’s player managed to find that final touch.

The game finished 3-2 Beechwood, a fantastic fight, showing great determination and resilience when things didn’t go our way.

MOM – Jovan

The second goal came by the centre back Mikolaj driving forward and winning 50/50 battles and poking the ball in behind with perfect weight for Albi to pick it up and calmy ease it past the keeper 2-0.

Quickly after St Joseph’s 2nd goal the Grammar school made a quick reply, a slight blunder and lack of communication between Gabi and the two center backs, Marcus and Mikolaj the Langley grammar school attacker managed to snake a goal in. 2-1

The second half followed a similar path as the first, with all the football being played by Manchester City, I mean St Joseph’s. Jovan found space running at defenders, leaving them in his wake. He fired a long-range speculative effort form 30 yards, with the keeper scrambling it ricocheted of the cross bar and into the lap of Emmanuel who drove it home for his well-deserved goal.
