Match Report
Christ's Hospital U12 Athleticos vs  Box Hill School
On: Wednesday, 05 Dec 2018
Venue: at Home

A tough final challenge for the Athleticos as they faced a U13 Box Hill team which included a couple of Chalfont academy footballers. As ever CH enjoyed the challenge of competing against good opposition, dominating the first half the home team opened the scoring through James Mackay. The lead at HT could have been much larger than 1-0 had CH been more clinical with their chances created however it did include a magnificent save from the Box Hill GK to deny a Marcos Panoutsos volley.

CH started the second half as they finished in confident fashion. Gabriel Birkin controlled a difficult pass just in his own half drove at the Box Hill defence and found a finish to double the lead. A spell of 10 minutes where the energy in CH’s performance dipped dramatically resulting Box Hill pounding on this to score 3 scrappy goals. During this period there was a sensational goal line clearance from David Akintola to keep the score line tight. The final 5 minutes CH were back on top creating many chances but again not finding a finish to match what was a terrific performance for a large percentage of the match.

David Iyayi had a powerful consistent performance in all areas of possession particularly preventing a very dangerous opposition winger from effecting the game.
