Year 8 Football Tournament

A few weeks ago, the Year 8 football team participated in a 7 a-side tournament against 2 other schools in Tower Hamlets. It was at Victoria Park and was organised by Queen Mary’s University.

In the first match, it was Swanlea vs Stepney Green. Our team struck a goal first with a long-range shot into the bottom corner. However, only a few minutes later, the Stepney winger did a brilliant cross to the striker who then scored. It was 1-1 and Swanlea were determined to win. We made many chances with crosses and passes in the oppositions’ box but unfortunately we couldn’t execute an on-target finish.

In Swanlea’s second match, we were opposing St Michael’s Catholic College. In this match, Swanlea had most possession of the ball the majority of the time and made several chances for a goal. However, St Michael’s goalkeeper did some brilliant saves against Swanlea’s wingers and strikers. Fortunately, near the end of the match, Swanlea’s left-winger dribbled through their midfielders and defenders, passing it into the back of St Michael’s net.

At the end of this tournament, Stepney Green won with 1st place and St Michael’s were 2nd due to goal difference. Swanlea were declared 3rd place!

A BIG WELL DONE FROM MR FUSCHILLO AND THE PE DEPARTMENT!!
