Results for 13th October:

 Year 5 played two League matches:

 

            Home              All Saints         v          St Winifred’s               Drew   0-0

            Away               Dalmain           v          All Saints                     Won    1-2

 

All Saints opened their season against St Winifred’s with a 0-0 draw.  St Winifred’s started strongly and All Saints had Jack to thank for a great save when St Winifred’s broke free and had a clear run on goal.  After that scare, All Saints grew in strength as the match went on, and the All Saints midfield and defence combined to prevent St Winfred’s from creating any real chances.  At the other end, Archie saw his fierce shot batted away by the St Winifred’s keeper.  All Saints’ best chance came in the second half after powerful run from Jonathan opened up St Winifred’s, but unfortunately he and Theo got in each other’s way at the crucial moment.   Ultimately, neither team was able to break the deadlock and the points were shared, but for All Saints this was an encouraging start with a good team performance.

 

In the second match, Dalmain had an early breakaway chance which they failed to take, but it was All Saints who offered the greater threat in attack, with both Archie and Jonathan making penetrating runs and forcing a number of corners. From one of these Theo opened the scoring, collecting the ball on the edge of the penalty area and jinking past a couple of players before hitting a low right-footed shot.  Dalmain rallied and struck the cross-bar from a corner, before Jack saved three close range efforts one after the other with some brave goalkeepng.  The second half was very open as All Saints lost their shape a little and Dalmain pressed for an equaliser, missing some chances and bringing out a couple of good saves from Jonathan, who had replaced Jack in the All Saints goal.  All Saints might have gone 2-0 up but Will’s effort was pushed away by the Dalmain keeper.   With time running out, Dalmain’s pressure eventually told and they scored a well-taken equaliser.  However, within less than a minute All Saints were back in the lead, and again it came from a corner.  The ball broke to Theo on the edge of the area and he finished with a well-placed shot, this time with his left foot, to give All Saints a 2-1 victory.
