Year 9 District Futsal Tournament at Keele University
As a school we entered 2 teams into the competition and were placed in different groups.
In their first game STB ‘A’ went down 3-2 against Clayton. An own goal and a goal from Adam Callaghan gave STB a 2-1 lead however the game was end to end and Clayton equalised and then scored their winner late on. Chesterton were the next opponents and our inability not to finish the chances we created saw STB lose 1-0. Our final game was against Madeley who had previously won both of their other games. The score remained 0-0 for much of the game however Madeley scored twice in quick succession to give them a 2-0 win.
STB ‘B’ were drawn with Clough Hall and Wolstanton. A hard fought first game against Clough Hall saw Joseph Rutter score first only for Clough Hall to score 2 late goals to give them a 2-1 victory. Wolstanton beat Clough Hall in their first game which meant STB’B’ needed to win to go through to the finals. Mitchell Holmes White was inspired in goal making numerous saves to keep STB in the game. Chances were created at the other end however no break through. As the final whistle blew the game finished 0-0 which was a positive result given the strength of the Wolstanton team.
Excellent effort by both teams. Unfortunately however neither team qualified for the final.
