St John Bosco Wow Moments

Football vs Leamore – Unbeaten run goes on!

On Monday, 8 children headed over to the Forest Arts Centre with Miss Ellicott and Mr Masterson in our brand new minibus, to play football against Leamore (Mr Mobberley’s new school).

As the weather is so poor at the moment, we played indoors in their sports hall.

When the game got underway, despite the early pressure from Bosco, Leamore took a surprise lead. This seemed to spark Bosco into life and a good passing move led to Elliot Butler cooly finishing past the excellent Leamore goalkeeper to level the game at 1-1. The next ten minutes proved very fruitful for Bosco with Josh Harris grabbing 2 goals and Elliot adding a 2nd to give Bosco a 4-1 half time lead.

Agata made a couple of  superb saves at the beginning of the 2nd half, showing bravery and skill. Jamie, Alfie and Abbie held firm at the back allowing the midfielders and strikers to attack and add to the lead. Josh completed his second hat trick of the season with another excellent finish and then Elliot, who worked hard all game, added to his tally to also complete his hat trick.

This made the score 6-1. The next goal was scored by the determined, Elliot Hill, who passed the ball brilliantly all game and so really earnt his goal. Leamore managed a late rally to pull 2 goals back, but Bosco had the final word with further goals from Elliot B and Josh.

The match finished up 9-3 which was probably a fair reflection of the game. Bosco passed the ball well all game and could have had many more goals but for the very talented Leamore goalkeeper. Dylan captained Bosco for the first time and did a great job.

We thank Leamore and particularly Mr Mobberley for the game which was played in the right spirits and also for their hospitality.

This result leaves the Bosco side unbeaten in the Autumn term which is a great achievement. Well done!
