On Wednesday 16th March Ashlands Rangers traveled over to Misterton for a football match. We were lucky with the weather this week as the week before the match was called off because of rain. We arrived with plenty of time for a warm up and to prepare for the match.
We played 7 minute quarters swapping each time to make sure that all the children got a chance to play. In the first quarter we scored our first goal followed by another in the 2nd quarter. Misterton followed this up with another 2 goals making it 2-2 at half time. We were not beaten though and every single player dug deep in the second half to make the final score 4-2. Each player worked really hard and listened well to any advice given to them. A special mention needs to be made for Lawrie Kirton who stepped into goal for an injured Casey Young and played an excellent game. Our goal scorers were; our captain Charlie Power, Cody Merret and Tyler Padfield.
The whole team:
Captain : Charlie Power
Cody Merret, Tyler Padfield, Henry Tavener, Lillie Woodhead, Sienna Trusson, Lawrie Kirton, Calvin Chen, Sam Nebel and Lewis Craig.
The whole team was a credit to the school and we were visa lery grateful for the travelling supporters too!!
