Well done to our school football team, who travelled to Portreath School this afternoon and won an entertaining match 4-2.
With a squad of 12, we made good use of the rolling substitutions rule and everyone played an important role over the course of this extended 40-minute match. After a slow start we got ourselves 3-0 up with great long-distance strikes from Stan, Ras and Joe before Portreath scored a nicely-worked goal of their own to bring the game back to 3-1. Just before half time Callum showed good determination to score our fourth, leaving the score at the break 4-1 to Bosvigo.
In the second half it was much closer, as the Portreath goalkeeper made countless saves with his hands and feet to deny almost every single player in our squad. Portreath had some good chances of their own and Ras made a number of good saves before our hosts finally broke through to score a late second.
All in all this was an enjoyable and entertaining match and one that we are keen to repeat in the early stages of 2014. Our thanks to Mr Larcombe and Portreath for hosting the match and for providing us with drinks and biscuits at the end.
