Year 9 Football Win! Well done Boys!

 

Our year 9 footballers did Sacred Heart proud again today defeating High Tunstall 4-3 in the National Cup. We have played High Tunstall in our 2 county cup final victories, both very close matches, and after going 2 up inside 10 minutes today we thought it may be an easier than expected afternoon. It wasn't to be as they responded and made it 2-2 at the break before 3-2 ahead midway through the second half. Our footballers 'never say die 'attitude kicked in and we equalised not long after, before breaking away and scoring the winner with 5 minutes to go.

 

It was a whole team effort where every player stood up and was counted however a special mention to George McCormick who scored all 4 goals and worked his socks off against his marker who is in the England set up.

Huge congratulations boys!
