Arthur Terry 3 v 1 Turves Green
A Jones; R Thomas; O Powell
The Y7 Boys progressed into R4 of the BSSF cup with a fantastic 3-1 victory over Turves Green Boys school. The first half was evenly fought, but Arthur Terry deservedly took the lead when Alex Jones opened the scoring after making a timely run into the box to slot in a great cross from Riley Thomas. Shortly into the second half Riley doubled the lead after beating the opposition keeper to a through ball from Matt Greenway, coolly lifting it over the keeper before finishing on the half volley into the empty net. Turves Green battled hard to keep in touching distance of the score and somehow managed to prevent themselves from going 0-3 down after making several unbelievable goal line clearances! The 2-0 score line actually became 2-1 before Arthur Terry finally put the game to rest with a third goal, courtesy of Oliver Powell's excellent run into the box and clinical finish.
NB: The absence of goal line technology prevented Matt Greenway from getting his name on the score sheet in the final minutes of the game, but hopefully he took some solace in being awarded man of the match after displaying another commanding and influential role in center midfield!
Rd4: Arthur Terry vs. Kings Norton Boys (Date TBA)
Man of the match: Matt Greenway
