On Thursday 3rd October, the Owls travelled to Park Lea Primary School (formerly Sundon Park Junior School and Cheynes Infant School) to play in their second football and netball matches of the season, both looking for good performances against a strong sporting school.
Park Lea 1 St Matthew’s 0
The boys played a very competitive game and were on the wrong side of a 1-0 defeat thanks to a dubious penalty decision. VAR required was the message to the leagues after stand-in referee Mr Campbell awarded a penalty to the home side after the ball struck an arm/shoulder in the penalty area.
After the game Fabian and Junain said:
“We did very well, fought hard against a physical team.”
Player Of The Match was Lewis who stepped up in goal and made some great saves. Overall it was a fair result and Mr Campbell was very happy with the boys’ performance.
The Owls team comprised: Alieu, Damian, Fabian, Fadl, Junain, Lewis, Lucas and Omarion.
Be the best we can be…
Park Lea 7 St Matthew’s 4
The girls played one of the best teams in Luton at netball. They fought incredibly hard and never gave up in their 7-4 defeat.
The game started very frantically with both teams fighting for the ball, after the first quarter it was 3-1 to them. The girls continued to battle and gave everything to try and get a result with scores of 1-1 in both of the next two quarters, making us two goals behind with one quarter left to go.
The Owls played really well but ran out of steam in the end, with some strong play from Player Of The Match Ulani.
