On Tuesday 19th November, St Katherine’s faced More Park Primary School in their second football match of the year.
More Park took an early lead through a well worked goal. Shortly after, More Park scored a second with an unstoppable shot and although Jack was close to saving it, the shot squeezed into the net. St Katherine’s showed brilliant team work and resilience and were rewarded for their efforts just before half time when Hayden scored the rebound from Riley’s shot.
After a quick half time team talk, St Katherine’s started the second half positively, playing good football and passing the ball well. It wasn’t long before the second goal came when a penalty was given for handball in the box. Riley calmly stepped up and scored, levelling the match at 2-2. Once again, St Katherine’s didn’t give up and continued to attack looking for a third goal. The goal finally came when Hayden scored his second of the match which secured the 3-2 win.
A huge well done to Jake, Mason, Jack, Hayden, Ethan, George, Riley, Malachy and William who showed a brilliant attitude and teamwork throughout the match.
