YR8 Football Team
County Cup Champions March 2018
After a hard fought campaign the Year 8 boys had made it to the final. The Final was played at a brand new, top of the range facility (Arbour Park).
The boys had produced some amazing performances in the earlier rounds scoring more than 12 goals so they were confident coming into the final. In the first half Hazeley created a lot of chances hitting the cross bar and the post. But towards the end of the first half it was still 0-0. Then after a couple of genius tactical changes by Mr Crofts, Joe McCorquodale opened up the scoring with basically his first touch. Hazeley ended the first half 1-0 up.
Then from the very start of the second half Misbourne came back fighting, Hazeley had to hold strong against a barrage of Misbourne attacks. But as it often happens in football Misbourne were caught by a counter attack from Hazeley. A quick attacking run from Colin Mbugua resulted in a goal for Charlie Waller. From that point on the game was end to end with both teams attacking fiercely.
Then 5 minutes before the end of the game Hazeley broke through the Misbourne defence as Oli Lynch dribbled passed several defenders before placing the ball in the opposite corner of the goal.
