An 11-16 Academy
On Wednesday the 17th of September 2014, Stradbroke High School Year 9 football team hosted Alde Valley in a league and cup match. As it was the first game of the season we needed a solid victory.
As soon as the game had started Mat Knight, Lewis Hayden and Kieran Harvey were making great runs, as they knew they had the pace advantage. Sam, Elliot and Rob were dominating the pitch looking for openings and taking lots of shots. Olli Roper, Ollie Havers , Ben Brown and Harvey Robson were solid, not letting any shots get on target making us head into half time 3-0 up with two good finishes by Mat Knight and one great goal by Elliot Hopkinson.
Stradbroke started the second half with a determined mindset as we knew we could have scored more goals in the first half. We kept the defence solid with Evan Read replacing Harvey and Jack O Smith came on in midfield. We played some great passing football up top and ended up scoring 4 more as Kieran Harvey scored a superb volley at the back post. Ben Brown scored a half volley from outside the box and Matt Knight scored another good finish giving him a hat-trick. To finish it off Sam Green kept his cool as he put away an awesome penalty. Well done Jack Smith who in goal eventually got his 1st touch of the ball.
Great win Stradbroke - 7 nil !
