Win and a draw is a solid start for school's soccer side
Beechen Cliff School's under-15B team kicked off their new season by following up a 7-0 win at Bristol’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital School with a creditable 1-1 draw against Crispin School A.
Snappy, short passing was the key to the opening victory, with plenty of early pressure leading to two fine goals from Deklan Davies.
With Wesley Kasiya and Kaine Tilley dominating in midfield, Beechen went on to double their half-time lead through Elliot Press and defender Oliver Smith.
Roshan Limbu – who, like fellow winger Press, provided good width – extended the advantage before further goals from Adam Smith and super sub Ryan Musgrave wrapped up an impressive win.

Liam Nicholas also made some smart saves to protect his clean sheet but it was Tilley and defensive lynchpin Adam Mather who shared the man of the match award.
Tilley’s terrier-like qualities also helped Beechen get on top in the first half of their game against Crispin and they were rewarded when Smith’s deft touch sent Press through to round the keeper and coolly slot home.
A number of personnel and formation changes were made at half-time as Beechen demonstrated their strength but Crispin managed to get back into the game.
Defenders Wall and Mather were to the fore as the hosts maintained their lead until seconds from time, when a stunning shot from distance narrowly evaded Nicholas’ dive.
Meanwhile, Beechen’s Year 7 B team made a hesitant start to their season and found themselves 3-0 down to Crispin School after just ten minutes.
They improved significantly after that, though, with Max Beament, Joe Husher-Morgan, Archie Buxton and Cameron Tolley-Taylor getting a grip in midfield.
A period of domination led to quick-fire goals from the impressive Owen Dudman and the lively Cameron Tolley-Taylor but, despite outstanding defending from Harvey Squire and keeper George Kohn, Crispin managed to get a scrappy fourth.
Other good Beechen performances came from Jeremy Becker, Ethan Collier, Archie Inghall, Patrick Dixon, Stuart Blair, Tyler French and Will Abel.
