Sports Report - Year 11 Futsal
Tonight we hosted the year 11 futsal and destroyed Haygrove 6-2. It could have been 20. A thoroughly well deserved win and the boys played some lovely football.
We then entertained Blake and beat them very comfortably 4-1 again it could have been 12 or more.
Blake then beat Haygrove 3-1 to set up a final against us, with the winner going through to the County Finals at Millfield.
Clearly it was a mistake on my part to tell the boys this information as the football from the previous two games was nowhere to be seen and immediately we trailed 1-0. This then became 2-0 within seconds after 40 seconds of sloppy play we found ourselves 2-0 in the final. With 10 seconds to go in the first half we pulled one back to make it 2-1 half time.
The second half became a battle and the boys took some calculated risks to get themselves back in the game which left them open at points. As the boys dragged themselves back to 2-2 they left themselves open once more by not tracking runners and becoming very reactive in their play to allow their striker to easily score in the bottom corner under no pressure. with one minute left Chilton poured forward and scored with the last kick of the game. In all honesty they were very fortunate to scrape the draw. A remarkable turn around given the first two games.
It went to penalties and eventually we were beaten 10-9. The boys will be very disappointed and rightfully so, they will not now get to Millfield.
Special mentions Ciaran Williams who was outstanding at the back for all three games and captain Harvey Webber who never stopped running, a lesson for all in work rate.
