Sports Report - Futsal
On Tuesday the Year 9 boys confidently took on the rest of the Sedgemoor Area in Futsal competition. In a fairly tepid opening game we came away with a 1-1 draw thankfully we were without VAR and goal line technology as one was scrambled off the line by Joe Legg late on. An opportunity missed it seemed.
This however, was as good as it got for the boys as they lost the next three games comfortably. A mixture of senseless running, lack of defensive nous and complacency did not help things and all will think they could have played much better. Credit to Fawaz who held his position admirably amongst wave after wave of opposition attacks. KAS were eventual winners.
The year 9 girls futsal team took on Haygrove and BCA this evening in the Sports Hall. First up we played Haygrove and took a deserved 1-0 lead through Fern Hill. Haygrove hit back immediately after half time as Chilton were caught sleeping. Again Chilton were caught sleeping and reactive to the situation as they allowed Haygrove to stroll into the area and have an uncontested shot to make it 2-1. Captain Summer Hellard set Fern Hill up again to draw level at 2-2. Unfortunately and rather frustratingly Haygrove were gifted yet another soft goal and despite the frantic last 50 seconds Chilton could not find the equaliser.
Whilst watching BCA destroy Haygrove with their power and aggression (score unknown, we stopped counting!) the girls agreed to be more assertive in the second game. The effort levels were much higher than the first game and they battled admirably against a strong BCA outfit. A fortunate ricochet and a sleeping Jodi Head allowed BCA a soft goal to go into half time 1-0. The girls had surprised themselves and were hugely disappointed to be one down.
In the second half the girls continued to be aggressive in the tackle and really hustle BCA. A few long range shots tested the BCA keeper but nothing could get past her. A defensive mix up allowed BCA to toe poke a goal home and it finished 2-0 and perhaps slightly flattering a strong BCA somewhat. Credit to Fern HIll for her goals and constant threat up front and to captain Summer Hellard who never stopped running in both games.
