Fantastic performance from the lads winning 4-3 on penalties.
The game started with Clifton on top attacking up hill, after missing a few chances a definite penalty was awarded to Clifton to where Jensen was denied by an unbelievable save from the St Bernard’s keeper. Moments later we took the lead with a header from Finley and soon after doubled our lead with a great touch and lob from Josh. 2-0 at HT.
The second half was tough with St Bernard’s pressing and us looking tired, they pulled it back to 2-2 but lads dug deep to keep it at 2-2 until FT.
Penalties were next… Some brilliant penalties scored and saved from Luke Steane. After 10 penalties each, it was back to Finley to step up and score, it was all down to Luke who pulled off a fantastic save to send Clifton to the final. Sending everyone into mass celebration with tears flying around everywherem with almost a tear shed from myself and Mark.
What a fantastic evening with so much support from both pupils and staff. There must have been over 80 – 100 children and at least15 staff coming to watch which made winning all that better and really showed what a fantastic spirit is around Clifton.
We can not wait for the final!!!
Please congratulate the lads on this fantastic achievement.
COME ON CLIFTON!
