SINCIL SPORTS COLLEGE VS. AMBERGATE SPORTS COLLEGE – March 2017
For many of our students, this football match was to be their first and it showed! Leading up to the game all of the students were very excited and raring to get the fixture started. As we arrived at Sincil Bank (the home of Lincoln City football club) many of their fans were collecting FA cup tickets for their trip to Arsenal. The students thought the fans had gathered in their hundreds to watch their game against Sincil Sports College!
Ambergate took an early lead with a fantastic effort from Lewis Blackburn, rounding one defender and slotting the ball passed the keeper (0-1). The students then had the hunger to go and score more goals, forgetting about their defensive duties. It wasn’t long before Sincil had got one back through another excellent solo effort (1-1).
Half time and the score remained 1-1. The students were excellent at analysing their performance and knew the importance of playing as a team.
In the second half both sides were matched with both Matthew Cartwright and Sincil's goal keeper pulling off some outstanding saves to keep the score level.
PENALTY!!! Hand ball in the box and Reggie Wedge gave the keeper the eyes and calmly placed the ball straight down the middle to take the lead (1-2).
Both teams were playing excellent football, with some strong passing and defending, however another solo run from Reggie Wedge settled the game making it 1-3 to Ambergate.
A fantastic win for our team in their first ever game!
Final Score: Sincil Sports College 1 - 3 Ambergate Sports College
Player of the match – Reggie Wedge. Excellent display of skill and determination.
