Striker/midfielder, Darwin Zhou '23, also hit the post with an excellent bending effort from the edge of the penalty area. It was Peddie who eventually broke the deadlock with some skilled play down the right flank, a good ball into the box, and an easy finish.

George School had a much better second half, only conceding one goal and creating a few promising chances. The Cougars have two more games left this season. The first is home against Holy Ghost on Wednesday, October 16, and the second is away at PRISM on Friday, October 18.
