Primary 7 Football Success
On Monday 9th of February, Oakbank Primary competed in the SFA Soccer 7s tournament at the North Inch Community Campus. It was a lovely bright wintery day and the conditions were perfect for our footballers to showcase their talents.
Oakbank started strongly with a 5-0 victory, and never looked back from there. The team finished the day undefeated having conceded just 2 goals in 7 games.
Due to the teams solid defending and slick attacking play, Oakbank progressed through to the final against a strong RDM team. It was a very close game, and even extra time couldn't separate the teams so it came down to penalties. The Oakbank players were able to keep their cool under pressure and scored all 7 of their penalties, with our keeper saving a penalty to put the team through to the next stage of the tournament.
As Perth and Kinross champions from our qualifiers, we not go on to face teams from the North of Scotland. We will face the best teams from Inverness, Aberdeen, and the rest of the Highlands and Islands. The standard in the next tournament takes a real step up but we are hopeful of going all the way to the Scottish Finals.
