GLENWOOD HIGH SCHOOL 1ST SOCCER REPORT VS GEORGE CAMPBELL
THURSDAY 26 AUGUST 2015
Glenwood 1st Football XI played George Campbell at their home grounds. Glenwood started off well and, by using the defenders, they managed to close them down early. George Campbell tried to penetrate our defence but Glenwood stood firm. Half way through the first half, Glenwood was awarded a free kick just outside the opposition’s 18 yard box. Marvin Van Zuydam stepped up and put the ball into the top right hand corner of the net bringing the store up to 1-0 . In the last 10 minutes of the half, the Glenwood intensity subsided and we backed off players. George Campbell found our defence floundering as their striker ran onto a through ball and slotted the ball into the net. The half time score was 1 – 1.
The second half was a battle of wills, missed chances and brilliant goalkeeping from both sides, especially our keeper Kayde Chislett. Play started to get a bit rough and intense and many fouls were committed, luckily not in dangerous areas. The game finally ended at 1 goal apiece, a true reflection on the game.
