Last week’s tournament
The Sun Academy football team played in two tournaments last week. Years 3 and 4 entered two teams at the Power League Stoke. Both teams finished runners up in their groups narrowly missing out on goal difference. Sun Academy A and Sun Academy B then went into a second league stage with the A team winning the group and the B team finishing runners up. History was made when the two Sun teams played out a thrilling battle with the A team edging it through in injury time
Years 5 and 6 entered the same tournament for their age group a few days later. The A team were dominant in all of their games but struggled in front of goal. When placed in a second group stage they found their shooting boots with a number of comprehensive victories on their way to winning the group. The B team had a similar turn of fortunes winning 3 out of 4 matches in the runners up group, also finishing as group winners.
All players served Sun Academy with great pride. They were a credit to themselves, each other, and the whole school. It was also great to see so much support and passion from the parents who came to watch us.
League games today
The mighty Sun Academy continued their winning streak with victories against St John’s and Silverdale on Monday night. St John’s ended their own season long winning streak after being out-fought and out-classed by the superb Sun Academy. Goals from Aaron (Y6) and Josh (Y6) capped off immense performances by all players involved in a 2-0 victory.
Silverdale were next to be put to the sword by the rampaging Sun. Sun Academy peppered the Silverdale goal only to be denied by the woodwork and outstanding goalkeeping. Josh (Y6) eventually broke the deadlock with three minutes to play to give Sun a well deserved 1-0 win. A rare injury time attack by Silverdale was thwarted in injury time by a phenomenal Sam (Y4) save.
