On Friday the 23rd of August  the year 6 soccer team played in a quarter finals game against Shelly Park school. The team was very motivated and tried their best but the opposition was strong and we unfortunately lost 8-1. Alex Lister was the player of the day, he challenged and successfully kept possession of the ball. One thing we learnt from the match was that accurate passing is a skill we need to brush up on as this definitely proved a tactic of the Shelly Park team.
