This Saturday, the Varsity Boys Football Team played against the alumni for a second time this season. Kick-off was at 10am sharp at Zurich’s home pitch, and a small crowd of Volleyball players and parents came to watch the game.
The Varsity Boys team started off solidly at the back, and throughout the first half Zurich played well. James Boakes (’16) made some clean and very important tackles to stop the Alumni from scoring.
As the second half started, a finish from an alumnus gave them the 1-0 lead. Several minutes later, Ben Nauer (’17) stood outside the box and managed to kick the ball into the back of the net with his left foot. Due to continuous sloppy defending from Zurich, the alumni managed to get a lead over the Varsity Boys again. However, Ben Nauer (’17) got to the end of a cross and tipped the ball, scoring his second goal of the day. The score was now a tie at 2-2.
In the last minute, a through ball flew over the defenders’
heads, and the alumni managed to seal the win with a last minute goal, achieving a final score of 2-3.
Zurich hopes to make a comeback on Monday against FC Richterswil.
