St John's hosted Alfred Sutton in a 7-a-side football match on Friday 24th February. The teams were evenly matched and after 30 minutes of football, could not be separated; finishing the game with two goals apiece.

St John's made an early breakthrough, with Maxina tucking in a great cross from Zara, beating the 'keeper to the ball and putting us 1-0 ahead. Alfred Sutton responded well, and only a few minutes later, scored an equaliser. They went 2-1 up just before half time, meaning St John's had a lot of work to do in the second half.

The team did not panic, however, and about five minutes from time, Mrinmoyee hit a speculative shot goalwards from just a few metres ahead of the halfway line. Neri was waiting to pounce on the incoming ball, but dummied it, sending the 'keeper the wrong way; the ball finding the corner of the goal and crossing the line to make it 2-2!

That's the way the game stayed, even though both teams created a few more chances to seal the victory - Alice proved a staunch defender, intercepting through-balls and clearing the lines. Good defending and no small amount of luck meant that a draw was the final result.

Well done to all involved from both schools - the match was played in great spirit and enjoyed by all.

St John's team: Alice, Gavrila, Leonie, Maxina, Mrinmoyee, Neri, Sanna, Teneisha, T'Shya, Zara
