Match Report
Radley College 5th XI vs  Harrow School Boys-U18F
On: Thursday, 25 Jan 2024
Venue: Away

Well, this was exciting...It did not look like it would be one-sided at first....We had the better of them in the first 15 minutes, but they did put Kyle (GK) under pressure a couple of times: but he was brave, quick to get out of the goal, and he was solid.

Bentley had a "moment" when missed a sitter - but he made up for it (on which more later). It looked balanced until Lovett scored a great goal -Then Harrow hit back (1-1)

The Harrow goal was soon followed by until Toby Hopton, with some nifty footwork, got it onto his right foot and scored to put us 2-1 up.

Early in the second half Bentley made amends - a great shot from 20 yards out after Arthur used the classic "Bentley drag back" to get past the defender. And Toby gets a mention for the golden assist. 3-1. Levett scored a 4th.

But special mention should go to Saeed - the Most Valuable Player - who worked tirelessly at Right Midfield...and Ivo - who worked so hard. And there were lots of solid performances really - Ed and Luca - the so Solid Crew at the back....Oliver running at and round people. Mr Levett showing huge strength and pace....It was a very good game to witness, and played with a professional and courteous spirit.
