Just before the holidays HPS football team played their first match of the season.
The team worked tirelessly hard during the school football match against Houghton Primary School, the contest was an even affair and played in difficult weather conditions. A wind assisted goal gave Houghton the lead against the run of play and they soon added a second goal after an heroic save from Freddie Colmer between the sticks. Zac Castillo and Dylan Barlett were holding strong in the HPS defence until 2 break away goals put Houghton further ahead. In the second half Daniel Grant went between the posts and kept Houghton to a minimal of chances and Matvej Dula and Baker Paffett looking a threat for HPS going forward. Freddie hit the bar and the hard working Kallyah Jackson had a good effort saved.
Well done to all the team on your 1st game of the year, I was proud to be your coach for the match.
