PlaceMakers PNBHS 1st XI Football v Wellington College - Wednesday 22 July
PlaceMakers PNBHS 1st XI played Wellington College, winning 4–2. Boys’ High started well, dominating both territory and possession early in the match. After 10 minutes, Boys’ High were rewarded with this effort, going 2 nil ahead with striker Ben Mori knocking in both goals. Not to be out done, Wellington College struck back to narrow the scoreline. Shortly after, Ben Mori struck again, beating the goalie at the “near post”, taking the score to 3-1 into the break.
After halftime, Wellington College stepped up the tempo and began to string together some passes, resulting in a goal, which put pressure back onto the home team. However, Ben Mori found the back of the net to “seal the deal”, giving Boys’ High the win.
Of note, Bay Shi played his first game for the 1st XI, making a favourable impression. The four goals by Ben Mori was also an outstanding effort, supplemented by solid games from captain Mason Charlton and Brooklyn Browne in goal.
The 1st XI would like to thank our team sponsors: PlaceMakers Palmerston North and JG Residential.
