Bowden House took on Shoreham Academy in an away fixture.
Bowden where sporting a brand new home school football kit that included the We Not Me message across the shoulders on every shirt, the idea showing unity and community amongst our students. A well-contested game saw Bowden unfortunately lose 5-1 with our goal coming from an outstanding Lemar Wilson.
The score line really does not reflect the game as Bowden played good quick-paced football but were unable to finish their chances, in the first 15 minutes Bowden had 4 one v ones but just couldn’t find the back of the net.
Bowden House Fc lead by team Captain Mkenzie Floyd gave their all on the day but were unable to take their chances.
A three-man midfield of disputant David Moreira, J Jay Rozier and Mkenzie Floyd where playing lovely passes to open up the game and find the front three of Lemar Wilson, Archie Wood and Tyler Young where pressing the opponents back line and causing all sorts of problems. A defence that was under a lot of pressure did very well to keep focused and try to play out from the back as they had been asked to do William Quarrington, Ali Ozan, Jayden Shim Kilduff and Jodey Obaseki constantly giving a lot of effort and energy to the game. At half time Quarrington was replaced with Jacob Philip who had a near perfect game at left back linking up well with Wilson. Pierce Woolward replaced Wood up front closing down every ball and being a physical presents. Joshuaa Lattimer Beddi and Johnie Maytil came on as late substitutes to give Bowden a bit more energy in the attacking half and did well.
Bowden House’s goal came from a through ball from Rozier who found Wilsion down the left wing who beat his man with a neat step over and fired the ball across the goal in to the far corner a very acrobatic celebration followed and a great moment for the team.
In the later stages of the game Bowden where awarded a free kick the Floyd stepped up to take, a David Beckham like effort was destined to land in the right top corner but an outstanding save from the Shoreham goal keeper denied Floyd his moment and left both teams and staff asking how he stoop that? Man of the match was closely contested as Wilson, Moreira and Philips where all nominated but the vote came from the students and the award went to J Jay Rozier for an outstanding game where he not only played magnificently but also helped others and showed great team work skills.Back to news page
