Sports round up

Football

The Year 7 boys football team traveled to Gosforth Central Middle School for their fixture in the quarter final of the county cup. The boys were missing 4 key members of the squad but still turned up full of optimism.

Sam scored early in the second half to make it 1-0 to OMS but conceded 2 goals straight away which left it all to play for.
The boys showed tremendous character scoring in the last minute of the game, with a fantastic header by Finn to take the game to 2-2.
The game went into extra time, which was nailbiting for everyone to watch. Not long into the first half, Finn scored a fantastic second goal to give OMS the lead 3-2. They managed to hold on until the final whistle meaning they are through to the semi finals which is due to be played at OMS against Cramlington.

Picking a man of the match was impossible with every single player doing themselves and the school proud.
Well done boys and good luck in the semi finals!
