Football Match Reports
On Wednesday, Monkfrith Football team played a league match against St Paul’s School. The first half was very even and both team battled from end to end. We were fighting against the wind and uphill, which made it very difficult for us to play our game, but our defence was extremely strong, not allowing our opponents score. Jack (our goalkeeper) made a great one on one save just before the half time whistle, to end the half 0-0. The second half was a different story. We went out positively and now had the wind and downhill advantage. Our attempts on goal finally went in and Mete scored our first goal with a very brave header, from Harry’s corner that bounced around the box. Our second goal came from Zain, just outside the box, who’s determination finally paid off. Our final goal was scored by Steven – very cool and confident shot across the goal. It wouldn’t have happened without Max’s crucial tackle, which was passed to Zain, who was then able to pass a great through ball to Steven.
Fantastic final score 3-0. Special mention to Jake and Sebastian – their energy and recovery on the wings helped us to defend some dangerous attacks from our opponents. Well done to Harry, for stepping into midfield and giving his best performance yet. Congratulations to Mete, who was voted players player for his strength and determination throughout the match. We are so proud of the way they worked as team and really showed how good our passing game can be.
On Wednesday morning, year 6 boys travelled to Power League for their football tournament. First, we played Osidge and Max scored a cracking goal from outside the penalty area to win the match 1-0 but unfortunately Jake injured his knee and could not play on. Next, we played Church Hill and it was a very close match. Sebastian made many crucial saves to keep us in the game but despite our determination Church Hill struck a fantastic goal that was unstoppable – winning them the game 0-1. We knew our next match would be tough, against the unbeaten St Theresa’s and it was. Despite our efforts, they won 1-4 – Zain grabbing us a goal. Finally, we played Livingstone. Monkfrith went out fighting and won 3-1 with two goals from Zain and a goal from Sebastian. We had a great morning and we were lucky with the weather.
On Wednesday, Monkfrith football team travelled down to Oakhill Park to play Church Hill School in their next league match. Church Hill scored the first goal with a long range shot but we came back in Monkfrith style with a goal from Alfie who received a pass from Sebastian down the line. Church Hill struck back to lead once again. Monkfrith were determined to get an equaliser. They hit the post and the cross bar more times than I remember. Church Hill scored once again, making it 3-1. Monkfrith didn’t give up and finally Alfie scored his second. Church Hill goalkeeper made some fantastic saves. Monkfrith continued to attack the goal but unfortunately it just wasn’t Monkfrith’s day. We were very proud of the boys’ spirit and determination despite the score and their shots not going their way. This was their first league defeat. 3-2 was the final score. Congratulations to Sebastian who was voted players player.
On Thursday, Monkfrith football team played against Moss Hall in the 2nd round of the Dick Bailey Cup. The players started very confidently and the large pitch suited our game perfectly. They played up hill in the first half and the match was quite even. After a quick half time refreshment break, the players were feeling confident. They made the most of playing down hill and the final score was 7-4. Goals from Harry, Zain, Sebastian and 4 from Alfie. Well done to the Moss Hall players who never gave up and came back from a 7-1 lead. Fantastic match boys. A special mention to Mete and Max our super strong defenders making it really hard for Moss Hall to score. Congratulations to Max who was voted players player.
On Thursday, Monkfrith football team played their second league match against Hollickwood. The players did not let their last match get to them and they went into this match filled with confidence. Despite Hollickwood working really hard and their goalkeeper making many quality saves, we won a comfortable 8-1. Another win in the league taking us to 6 points. We are so proud of the way the boys are passing and moving together as a team and our teams sportsmanship towards the other team. Congratulations to Harry who was voted players player.
This week we had what we knew would be a tough match against Akiva in the East Barnet cup. We had many chances with Alfie’s free kick hitting the bar, Zain hitting the side netting and many scrabbles in front of the goal. It just wasn’t our day. Although our team played great football and battled hard, they lost 5-0. This does not reflect how even the match was. Special mention for Max, who made many critical defensive challenges. A huge thank you to Steven for stepping into goal with Jacks absence. We are proud that they never gave up and they were still having shots in the last moments of the game. Congratulations to Max who was voted players player.
On Thursday, Monkfrith football team played their first league match this week against St John’s N11. We started positively not knowing what to expect.

However, our heads didn’t drop and we came back when Alfie scored to make it 1-1. Our second goal came shortly after from a corner scored by Mete to make it 2-1 just before half time. We went into the second half feeling positive and our confidence was super high. Two more goals from Alfie and two from Zain made the final score 7-1. Congratulations to Alfie who was voted players player.
A fantastic final score for our first match. We are all very proud of the team and their determination to come back from a goal behind.
