Wednesday 16th November 2022 - AWAY MATCH

St. John's vs Trinity 

3 – 2! St. John's first victory of the season with goals scored by Perez and Max. Even though it was a rainy start, we persevered. Just as the match was about to start the rain ceased.

Although Trinity scored an early goal which put them in front, just 5 minutes into the second half Max scored the first of his two goals which took the game to 1-1. Not too long after that, I (Perez) scored a goal from a corner and I felt so happy but shocked not thinking it would go in due to me not being a left footer or good at scoring from that angle.

Shortly after Trinity scored a goal to equalise, which was sadly conceded by St. John's. By this point I was tired, but I did not want to come off. Eventually after a lot of arduous work, Kavi gave a great assist (like what we learnt in training), and Max scored in the last 5 minutes to put St. John's ahead and it did the job!

After the final whistle we felt a sigh of relief mixed with excitement, and due to our happiness forgot to shake hands with the opposition,  but did after a prompting from Coach Alex. After the match we raced to our parents as they cheered us on after our first win of the season, which was also the first St. John's victory over Trinity in a long while. Congratulations to our school team who ALL contributed to a great win and Max was awarded ‘Man of the Match’!
