On Wednesday, Woodlands Primary came across to William Barcroft to play a football friendly for both year 5/6 girls and boys. Both schools behaved impeccably and we can’t wait to face each other again and possibly other schools in our Harbour Learning Trust family. Both games were 20 minutes long with a 5 minute half time break.
Girls Match: William Barcroft 2 v 1 Woodlands Primary
The Barcroft girls got off to a flying start curtesy of Alexise, who fired us in front after 4 minutes. Alexise had a few more shots but these were saved well by the Woodlands goalkeeper. We went into half time with a 1-0 lead. William Barcroft started the second half like the first with a smashing goal by Alexise (as seen in the photo). Woodlands applied the pressure on William Barcroft and this paid off as they pulled one back towards the end of the game. Paige had a great shot which had drifted wide. Lillie-Rose also had a shot which skimmed past the past. Alexise nearly grabbed a hat trick but her powerful shot also skimmed past the post. Great result for our girls as both teams played really well.
Boys Match: William Barcroft 4 v 1 Woodlands Primary
The Barcroft boys kicked off and for 7 minutes, both teams were unable to break each other down with Ethan and the Woodland’s keeper making some great saves between them. Eventually, the deadlock was broken thanks to some great footwork from Louie who fired the ball low into the net. 2 minutes later, Robbie scored a fantastic goal of sheer quality with a beautiful volley fired into the roof of the net. William Barcroft went into half time 2-0 winners. William Barcroft were rampant and were looking for more goals. 2 minutes into the second half, a corner was fired in by Louie and Robbie got on the end of it to make it 3-0. A few more minutes later Tobias chased down a loose ball and collided with the Woodland’s keeper to make it 4-0. Both boys went in fairly but the Woodland’s keeper chose to go off after the collision, due to injury. A minute after kicking off Woodlands pulled one back but it proved only to be a consolation goal. A dominant display from the boys who looked like a different team to the one that drew 2-2 with Woodlands in January.
A massive thank you to Mr Bowden and Woodlands Primary for coming over, it was a pleasure to have you all with us and enjoy a fun afternoon. Such a rewarding treat after SATs. Well done to everyone that played today, you all did fantastically well and yet again have made Mr Dawes very proud!
