Year 11's Shootout Heartbreak in District Final!

Following Thursday's success against John Willmott, the year 11's had a quick turnaround for their Birmingham super cup final which was played at Bodymoor Heath, Aston Villa's training ground.

Arthur Terry took the lead early through Michael Benson but were pegged back immediately after kick off. The game ebbed and flowed with Arthur Terry creating more chances before Chris Ellis and James Briggs made it 3-1 at half time.

Arthur Terry scored early into the second half through Jake Noone and then pressed the self destruct button conceding 3 soft goals in 15 second half minutes. 4-4 at the end of normal time.

Both teams pressed for a winner in extra time but neither team could find one. On to penalties. Unfortunately Terry missed their first penalty and Handsworth made no mistake in converting their 5 spot kicks. 

Well done to Handsworth Grammar school on their success.
