West Pembroke boys put in final effort
West Pembroke School boys' football team played Somersfield Academy in the semi-final of the primary schools league competition last Friday.
The match was tight with the score 1-1 at half-time. In the second half, West Pembroke's attack came alive and scored two more goals, completing a 3-1 victory.
The next day, West Pembroke School played Warwick Academy in the final, again at the National Sports Centre North Field.
There was a good representation of parents on hand for both schools. Both teams battled hard and the score was 0-0 at half-time.
West Pembroke scored an own goal, giving Warwick Academy the lead.
The boys tried hard to score an equaliser and hit the cross bar twice and the side netting.
In the final analysis, our student athletes performed admirably, despite losing 1-0. Well done, boys.
