Wednesday 23rd March may be a date that the Eastwood High School S1 B team would rather forget as they lost 13-1 to Woodfarm High School B team. It was always going to be a tough match and unfortunately, on this occasion, Eastwood did not rise to the challenge.
The game started and things looked promising with Woodfarm missing a penalty 5 minutes into the game. However, they came back with a goal by the seventh minute and the game seemed to go their way from that point on.
The Eastwood player’s heads went down as Woodfarm continued to score bringing it to 2-0. Eastwood’s Ross Carmichael then scored an impressive goal from 25 yards out taking the score to 2-1. It was beginning to look hopeful, but by the end of the first 3rd Woodfarm were leading 4-1 and the morale of the Eastwood team was broken.
A further 5 goals in the second 3rd took the score to 9-1 and Eastwood were beyond recovery. The game ended at full time with score of 13-1 to Woodfarm. The goal of the game was Eastwood’s, however, a single goal was never going to be enough to beat Woodfarm on that date.
