OGs win at football

Last Saturday saw a mouth-watering encounter between an OGS XI v Downside Development XI.

The game couldn’t have started any worse for the Development XI as they conceded from the kick off as the OGs started strong and looked to assert their physical dominance. Their dominance continued throughout the whole of the first half and the goals continued to flow as the OGs piled on the pressure and took a strong lead into the half-time break.

As the second half progressed, the Development XI looked to try and get a foothold back in the game and the in-form Miguel Puente made it his mission to try and single-handedly drag the team back into the game, scoring 4 goals in the process.

As the final minutes drew to a close, a late comeback seemed on the cards however the Development XI couldn’t quite muster the spirit to overturn the deficit as the game ended up 8-6 to the OGs.

Playing for the OGs we had Simon Stott, Alex Ranzetta, George Field, Hugo Spink, Tom Pugh, Jack Daniel, Adrian Windler, Lloyd Penny, Ben Femiola, Toby Hanscomb, Mark Coram-James, David Coram-James and Jorge Baltazar.

A fantastic game of football played in the right spirits and both teams will look forward to a rematch in the Lent term.
