Year 5 Football


Manor Farm vs Princes Risborough

On Thursday 1st February, Manor Farm (Year 5) played a football match against Princes Risborough. It was an amazing game with some good saves, fabulous tackles, great passes and some epic goals. Manor Farm had kick off and we were straight into the game. We started well with Tommy and Louis C winning the ball in midfield. We did not give up when Louis R slipped over and accidently dropped the ball, which hit his foot and bounced out and they took the shot and scored. 1-0 Princes Risborough. But we did not give up. With Ellis and Luca passing it around we had many chances and finally Ryan volleyed the ball up in the air and lobbed their goalkeeper, 1-1. However, Princes Risborough came back but they were not good enough for Harry and Jamari at the back. Louis R also made some good saves to stop them. Manor Farm kept battling for the ball and finally Harry tackled them, gave it to Ryan who passed it to Max D, who passed it to Leo. Leo then faked the shot and sent the goalie the other way and tapped it in bottom corner. 2-1 to Manor Farm. Luca then went into defence and pulled a great sliding tackle to prevent them from scoring which gave Manor Farm an attacking chance, but we sadly put it wide.

Overall it was a fabulous performance by Manor Farm. We showed good respect to the opposition and a great attitude as a team. Well done to Manor Farm!
