Congratulations to the Y7 boys football team who this week made it through to the Aston, Erdington and Saltley District Cup Final!
Arthur Terry 2 v 1 St Edmund Campion
O. Powell 2
The boys started the game very brightly, carving out several chances to score the opening goal - only to be thwarted by some uncharacteristically poor finishing. The team did go on to take the lead though after striker Oliver Powell brilliantly dispatched a super left foot shot across the keeper and into the far side of the net. Despite having more of an attacking threat, a heroic goal line clearance from defender Josh Glithero was required to keep the score 1-0. After a Campion forward rounded our advancing keeper at the edge of the box and slotted the ball towards the empty goal, Josh's brilliant reaction and speed proved to be just enough to get to the ball and divert it away for a corner. The visitors did manage to equalize thereafter, making the score 1-1 at half-time! The second half proved to be equally competitive as the first period and there was nothing to suggest that either team held the edge over the other. The difference and winning goal came 10 minutes before the end, after a brilliant one-two link up between Oliver Powell and Ben Haycock provided the assist for Oliver to score his second and best finish of the match!
