Y7 School House in devasting form in Friday night House Football

After months at the top of the House Sports Leader board, the news that Selwyn’s had taken a 7-point lead meant the School House Friday evening Y7 football match versus Howson’s had taken on even greater significance. A 6.30pm kick off meant 20 Y7 pupils coming back into school and onto the sports fields for this interesting and exciting match up.

Having previously been beaten, Howson’s were keen to take 10 House Sports points off their fellow House competitors. The match started at a blistering pace with both teams eager to impress and it was Howson’s who dominated possession in the early stages. With 10 minutes remaining before half time, Harry Q from School House broke away on the counterattack and powered past the opposition keeper and into the net. Back came Howson’s and only a brilliant save denied Cian T from levelling up and whilst Howson’s held their head in their hands Harry Q capitalised, once again on the counterattack to make the half time score Howson’s 0 School  2. The second half saw Harry Q score his hat-trick in a matter of minutes to make it 3-0. What's been a key feature in many recent House Football matches is the comeback of the opposition and this was no different as an own goal and Flynn C made it Howson’s 2 School 3. There is no denying Y7 School House have fantastic footballing resilience, and this was once again evident as despite conceding two goals, they powered in another 2 goals through Harry Q and Layton N to make the final score Howson’s 2 - School 5. A brilliant match and a great advert for the relaunch of House Sports Competitions this academic year.
