A few months ago, the school took part in the Lewis Soccer 7s qualifier and got through to the next round. Last week we went to Tarbert to play. the Western Isles qualifier.
Like last year, the winner would go to Dundee. We played against Daliburgh, Sir E Scott and Stornoway Primary. On the way, the roads were bumpy and the nerves were kicking in but that did not stop us playing our very best!
We played straight away against Daliburgh and we won 3-0, which was a relief. Next up was Sir E Scott and we won by an impressive 6-0. Then our nerves kicked in. We were in the final against Stornoway Primary. Stornoway struck first with a good goal. Our heads were full of negativity and we thought there was no way back… until we reminded ourselves of our success last year. We had been losing against Stornoway Primary but managed to win in the end.
After our team talk, Stevie Mutch went on a superb solo run and scored a fantastic goal. We had the momentum and that secured us the winning goal – although Stornoway scored it! Stevie had crossed the ball into the goal mouth which was then accidentally converted in by the opposing team.
The final score was 2-1 to us. So we are on our way to Dundee on the 26th of March again and we cannot wait!
