Last week saw Year 8 Football win their fourth game in a row against a very strong Medina College team. With Sandown being able to field their strongest team yet, they managed to dominate the midfield in the first half and this resulted in a goal after fifteen minutes by Josh Attrill. The game remained 1-0 at half –time, with Medina defending stoutly and Sandown excellent passing game unable to break them down further.
The second half started brightly for the home team and the score was doubled when man of the match Matt Bennett put through Ross White to score. Medina fought hard and managed to pull one back. This only put Sandown up another gear and before a blink of an eye the boys were 5-1 up with goals from Lewis Kirby, Matt Bennett and another from Ross White. Well -done boys, Mr Haydon.
On Monday night the Year 7 boys football played their most difficult game so far against a resolute Carisbrooke side who had several eye catching players in midfield and up front. The Year 7 boys have played a few games together now and are really starting to look like a really organised outfit.
After a tight first twenty minutes, playing up hill, Oscar Fitzgerald broke the deadlock, on his debut with, a cool finish just outside the box , Just before half time Lewis Askey doubled the score, after slotting the ball home after a sublime through pass from Jack Younston.
After the break and playing with the wind , Sandown took more control of the game and before the end the boys scored two more goals( Lewis Askey and Josh Spinks) thus winning the game 4-0. They now have a crunch game against CTK to decide the league.
Well- done lads, Mr Haydon.
On Tuesday night the Year 9 boys basketball team won the tournament against Ryde, Cowes and Carisbrooke. After a slow start the boys lost their first game against Ryde 10-4. Ryde had already lost to Cowes.
This meant if the team had any chance of winning they had to beat favourites Cowes in second game. After a heated team meeting the boys played to their potential and played some outstanding attacking play. They were won the game 12-2 which meant the tournament was still alive.
Cowes and Ryde had beaten Carisbrooke, so the boys had to win their final game. The maths was worked out and Sandown had a tall order of beating Carisbrooke by a massive 16 points.
The team stepped up to plate and produce some eye catching offence and some dogged defence, The whole squad played there part in an astonishing 30-2 victory. The most valuable player award had to go to Michael Traczynski who scored over 30 points on the night,
A very well done to all lads, Mr Haydon.
