Victory for Bedales U13A Football team against Great Ballard
Dunhurst (Bedales Junior School) played quality football from the off with a 1-0 lead thanks to Barnaby Watney but Great Ballard came back strongly and forced some errors which put them 3-1 up after 30 minutes.
A corner move well practised by the team earlier on in the week finished with a goal when James Geaves came in from the edge of the box to put the ball beyond the keepers reach. At 5-3 up and just a minute to go Great Ballard managed to put another one away but Dunhurst then held on quite comfortably until the final whistle to record an excellent win at 5-4.
Commenting on the match, Alan Simmons, Dunhurst PE Teacher said: "All twelve of the boys played their socks off and really are developing their team play and personal skills. All in all this really was an excellent performance and I am genuinely proud of the attitude and commitment displayed by the whole team. We still have four fixtures remaining this term and look forward to them all."
