Under 12 Football - Blenheim vs. George AbbottPosted on: 05/12/2022
GEORGE ABBOTT 6 v 0 BLENHEIM HIGH SCHOOL
PLAYER OF THE MATCH: DIANA
The year 7 Football team had their third-round National Cup match against George Abbott this week.
George Abbott started with a strong attack and scored within the first five minutes of the 25-minute half. Blenheim quickly realised that they were going to have to step up their game and kept George Abbott to their own half for most of the rest of the half. Despite Blenheim’s efforts, George Abbott managed to capitalise on every quick break they had and were 3-0 up by the end of the half.
Blenheim re-structured their lines during half time and went into the second half with renewed purpose. Although the fighting spirit in the team remained high, George Abbott’s quick attacks and intimidating defence resulted in a 6-0 score line at full time. The score didn’t reflect the effort put in by the team and there were solid performances by Italia in defence and Olivia in midfield.
Diana was identified by George Abbott’s team, as well as their teacher, as the player of the match after an ‘entertaining’ game in defence.
Well done to all who represented Blenheim.
