Year 9 Cup Final Report

On Tuesday 7th May PCS year 9 football team travelled to Hove park for the Final of the League Cup against Stringer B.

Stringer got the game underway and PCS immediately won possession back with an interception from Charlie and then a shot that flew just outside of the post.

PCS carried on causing Stringer problems with great movement of the ball and finding the wingers. PCS soon took the lead with a perfect Free kick by Ryan met by Josh ,who walked it into the back of the net. 1-0 PCS. Continuously throughout the first half PCS looked to play quickly with Jimmy's long kicks putting Josh and the wingers in behind.

Stringer then had a spell of their own, making PCS give away free kicks and putting us under pressure. PCS defenders dealt with the problems and we managed to go into half-time with a 1-0 lead.

In the second half both teams had chances to score but both teams defences cleared any danger. With 15 minutes to spare Stringer picked the ball up on the right and took on Freddi who cleared the ball but in the process was knocked over with a head injury. Stringer took the throw in quickly and put the ball in the back of the net but the ref ruled it offside and it remained 1-0 to PCS.

PCS carried on playing their football and found a goal with amazing skill from Nobby who flicked it over his defenders and volleyed it beautifully into the top corner of the net extending PCS lead to 2-0.

Stringer tried to retaliate with a goal of their own but PCS found a 3rd from Ryan carrying the ball and a ricochet off the defender which fell into the path of Josh who slotted it under the Goalkeeper and putting the game to bed with a 3-0 lead .

Man of the Match went to Harvey who shut down any opportunity for Stringer and worked hard for the team.
