Inner City Soccer Review

Inner City Soccer: Grey Lynn A team review by Shaan

Inner City Soccer was held yesterday at Seddon Fields turf grounds, the home ground of Western Springs Football. There were 12 schools that came down. I was representing Grey Lynn School in the A team. We were in Pool A for the A grade.

Our first game was against Pt Chev. It wasn't the greatest of starts. The score was a 5-1 loss. The goal for Grey Lynn was scored by me in the first 10 seconds.

Final Score: Grey Lynn 1-5 Pt Chev - game review above

We only had a 5 minute break after that match then we played a fit Herne Bay Marist team where we won our first game of the tournament. The score was a 1-0 win with Oliver skilling the keeper then scoring having a 100% chance of scoring which he did.

Final Score: Grey Lynn 1-0 Marist Herne Bay - game review above

We had another 5 minute break then we played Westmere 2. That game was a great one winning 4-0. I scored 3 goals or another word for it is called a 'hat-trick'. Ty scored the other goal.

Final Score: Grey Lynn 4-0 Westmere 2 - game review above

After our win vs Westmere we had our final 5 minute break for the morning. Next game was vs Kadimah. Their team wasn't good at all thrashing them 19-0. We had hat-tricks from Finn and I scoring 4 and the other hat-tricks were by Harvey and Oliver scoring 3. Lucien, Ethan, Praful, Joseph and Red scored the other goals.

Final Score: Grey Lynn 19-0 Kadimah - game review above

After our massive win we had an extended break for 25 minutes and then we had a bye and then we played against Waiheke side Te Huruhi. That was one of the toughest games we had played yet with a 2-1 loss. Lucian scored the goal. If we drew then we could've made to the finals if Te Huruhi lost to Pt Chev.

Final Score: Grey Lynn 1-2 Te Huruhi - game review above

After our loss we played Westmere 1 and had a really good game. We won 5-2 for our final pool game. The goal scorers were me scoring 2 and Oliver, Finn and Harvey scoring the others. There was a horn  making a noise for full-time and I had the ball and the ref didn't blow his whistle for end of match and I ran with the ball skilling every defender and scoring. After my goal we were celebrating that we won.       

Final Score: Grey Lynn 5-2 Westmere 1 - game review above

After games:

By the skin of the teeth we just didn't make it to the plate final but we finished 3rd in Pool A and 5th out of the 12 schools that had competed. I finished as the school's highest scorer with 10 goals. We had a great day and then we went back to school arriving at 1/4 past 1 in the afternoon.
