Primary Football Round Up

On Saturday 13th March, the Under 9 and Under 11 football teams travelled to Tianning to take on Wei Hua FC, for their first matches of the new year.

A last quarter comeback from Wycombe abbey earns a credible and entertaining draw after a first quarter capitulation against Wei Hua FC in Tianning in the team’s first game.

J. Quintuna’s 4th quarter penalty seemed to give the Wycombe abbey players renewed hope and belief as a draw was rescued. He finished up scoring 5 goals with D. Zhu also on the scoresheet after an all-action display. Both teams played with a positive attitude and great sportsmanship on a lovely sunny morning on Saturday 13th March.

Mr. Hamilton's Data:

- Wycombe Abbey Under 9’s remain unbeaten since the resumption of football after the Coronavirus.

- This was the first meeting between Wei Hua and Wycombe abbey under 9 teams.

- Joaquin Quintuna became the first player to score five goals in a match since before the Coronavirus pandemic.

Final Score: 6-6

On the 13th of March, Wycombe Abbey School grade 5 boys played their 3rd game of the season, and first of the new year against Wei Hua FC. We departed Wycombe Abbey at 8.50am and arrived at the Heng Tang He Park pitch with enough time to do a warmup, consisting of slow jogging, sideways steps and sprints.

In the first quarter, we started well and were the better team due to pressing their attackers when they had the ball and getting the ball up the pitch to our forwards when we were attacking. We had numerous shots on goal, but their keeper was so big, he covered the entire net; we found it difficult to get the ball past him!

We created lots of chances this way, however, our downside came when we lost possession too easily on a few occasions. On two of these occasions, we conceded two goals.

In the second quarter, the boys kept their heads up, with a determined frame of mind to get back into the match and we started brilliantly. R. Huang managed to pull a goal back for WASCZ.

We struggled in the third quarter and this would turn out to be our least-successful period of the game. Too often we did not mark the opposition closely enough and left them in open space. We conceded three more goals, before scoring one ourselves through A. Yang, meaning it was WASCZ 2-5 WeiHua at the end of the third quarter.

We reflected on the last quarter and calmly discussed what we could do better; we had to mark the opposition closer and keeping possession of the ball. The boys did fantastically well and managed to score three unanswered goals through A. Yang (2) before R. Huang scored a last minute equalizer!

Final Score: 5-5
