Year 5 and 6 Match Vs Yarnfield

On Monday 12th March the Chilcote boys' football team played their second league match against Yarnfield School. They played at Yarnfield school on their astro-turf pitch.

Chilcote started the game really well and dominated the early exchanges without really testing the keeper too much. Then, with their first attack, Yarnfield broke the deadlock when they got the rebound after a good first save. Chilcote remained on top and should have equalised when they hit the bar but they hit the rebound straight at the goalie. Disaster struck as from the clearance Yarnfield had their second chance and again managed to score. The score was 2v0 at half time.

In the second half Chilcote again started well but just could not finish their chances. Unfortunately, a mistake from the keeper meant Yarnfield took a 3v0 lead. Finally, after that though Chilcote got the luck some of their play deserved and they found their shooting boots. They pulled back not one, but three goals through Ben, Madison and Josh to tie the game at 3v3. They rather ran out of steam at this point and the game became more even. Chilcote still had chances to win the game, but unfortunately Yarnfield managed to grab a winner from a corner. The final score was 4v3 to Yarnfield.

The boys did well and had they found their shooting boots earlier in the game would probably have won it. Well done to all!!!
