Y7 enjoyed a well fought and by what we saw a well-deserved victory. Unfortunately, the Y8 team couldn’t emulate the same success, crashing out with a 0 – 6 home defeat.
The boys for the first 20 minutes held their own, with both teams jostling for possession, Roman Bogdan was superb tonight in the middle of the park, tough tackles and trying his best to move the ball for the forwards to run into the channels. Unfortunately, two quick goals from the opposition saw our heads go a little, Bernards adding a third before half-time.
The most impressive thing was that we had 16 lads turn up tonight, so we decided to change things so they all got a game, some playing in new positions as we gambled and rode our luck to try and get back in contention. But the second half saw weary heads and legs, conceding another three, all through balls which the keeper did his best to smoother.
All in all, I was proud of the boys, quarterfinals are nothing to sniff at in the South Yorkshire Cup, we all wish the very best to St Bernards in the semi-final.
Well done to the Y7’s below who took part:
