The 1st XI Football team played King's College on Tuesday afternoon to challenge for the Morris-Kelly Cup.
The side began well and quickly seized the advantage when Form 6 student S. M. F. Clegg finished with a well-taken goal on the six-minute mark. The team continued to control possession and Clegg doubled the 1st XI's lead ten minutes later when he utilised a superb pass from Muller.
King's didn't respond to the 1st XI's press and failed to penetrate Grammar's half. This dominance was rewarded when a well-worked corner saw Form 7 student R. M. S. Davies head home the team's third goal just shy of the half an hour mark.
In the second half, complacency crept into the 1st XI's game and a long-range strike saw King's pull a goal back. The rest of the game saw the team continue to play attractive football, however, their chances failed to produce the goals they deserved.
In the end, the 1st XI produced a satisfactory early performance to win and therefore regain the trophy that is competed for between the two schools.
Congratulations to the team, and Form 7 student D. Thomas crossed stage to receive the Morris-Kelly Cup on behalf of the team and the School's congratulations.
