Year 7 Football
Our Year 7 footballers competed in the Year 7 Football Cup competition on Thursday the 19th of April. It was a fantastic day for a football competition as the weather was warm and sunny.
Our team played six games in the group stage of the competition and managed to progress to the semi-finals. Our semi-final against Cardinal Hume was a great game but it ended 0-0, so the match went straight to penalties. Our players held their nerve and we won the shoot-out by 5 goals to 4.
In the final we played Kingsmeadow, a team who had beaten us 1-0 in the group stage. This was a tough game with both sides having chances to score but the game ended in a 0-0 draw. Extra time did not manage to settle the match either so we were back to penalties! Our boys did brilliantly again and held their nerve by scoring all of their penalty shots whilst Kingsmeadow missed one of theirs, making Joseph Swan Academy the winners!
Our players displayed some great football skills during the competition. They showed great team spirit and a clear determination to win the Year 7 Cup.
Well done to all the players!
