Monday 1st October - Year 10 Football - City Academy Norwich vs Sprowston
With it being our first Year 10 match of the year, and it being against Sprowston, there was a lot of pressure on the team to play well. We started the game off brilliantly with our team putting on the pressure constantly and brilliant link up play. Our first goal came quickly due to this after Tiason delivered a long throw in front of the oppositions front post for Allan to attack and head the ball past the keeper. Our attacking team continued this great play in breaking through past the oppositions defence and scoring more goals by Wilson, Tiason and Abdullah. At half time the score was: CAN 5 – 0 Sprowston.
In the second half a few changes were made to the team including putting Tiason in goal and Connor in midfield. Sprowston came out into the second half with a new lease of life challenging every ball and working tirelessly. This put us on the back foot and after 10mins of this Sprowston’s hard work paid off and they scored. CAN saw this and responded with quick attacking play and soon after Vlad broke away from Sprowston defenders and scored a screamer of a goal with it going into the top left hand corner past the keeper. Following this goal Wilson gained his hatrick and Allan scored his second goal of the game.
The score ended with CAN 8 – 1 Sprowston
