Year 8 Boys Battling Back! ⚽

The Year 8 boys’ football team returned to action with a spirited performance and despite not playing together since December, the team put in a brilliant performance displaying impressive teamwork and fast-paced passing. Their attacking efforts were relentless, with the team unlucky not to find the back of the net despite carving out several goal-scoring opportunities.

Defensively the team were incredibly strong, preventing Easingwold from scoring for the majority of the game. However, a late penalty and a deflected goal in the final ten minutes saw the visitors claim a narrow 0-2 victory.

Despite the result, Mr Allen was brimming with pride for the players. "The work rate and sportsmanship displayed by the boys were truly remarkable," he enthused. "They played for each other, showcasing some brilliant football on the pitch and look forward to watching their next game."

With their determination and camaraderie shining through, Risedale's Year 8 team is sure to be a force to be reckoned with in the upcoming games. Watch this space for further updates on their journey!
