The Year 8 boys football team returned victorious on Tuesday 16 October following a creditable 2-0 win at Twickenham Academy.
It was a closely contested game where both sides had numerous opportunities to score. However, due to the agility and excellent performances by both goalkeepers the game remained goalless well into the second half. RPA maintained their composure and shape throughout the game which allowed Tainton to score a beautiful arching shot into the net.
Ten minutes remained and despite being 1-0 down Twickenham were still on the offensive and very much in contention. Tainton, once again, was instrumental in setting up the second goal with an acrobatic cross-field pass which Luis very adeptly capitalised on literally in the last minute.
Congratulations to all concerned as this was indeed a veritable team performance.
Team: Alban, Josh (Man of the Match), Ahmad, Tommy, Alfie, Daniel (Captain), Tainton, FJ, Ethan C., Nick, Kyron, Kyle, Luis, Yisrael
