South Hunsley’s Year 8B team have recently been crowned Humberside Cup Champions after facing St Mary’s in the final on Friday 20 April.
After finding themselves 1-0 down at half time, South Hunsley conceded again and were losing 2-0 before our first goal came from Ajay H, who scored a header from a great cross from Joel G.
In the last five minutes with great passing build up play from the defence to the attack, the ball was played through to Thomas H from Oscar M, which he coolly slotted away his shot, 2-2!! The game had come to an end and we had 5 minutes extra time to try for a winning goal. Not many chances were created from either side, but St Mary’s had a late chance which was denied by South Hunsley Goal Keeper, Oliver D. The whistle blew and the game went to penalties.
South Hunsley were first to take a penalty with Seth M slotting one home. St Marys scored their first and second but missed their third. Joel G and Jacob S scored South Hunsley’s next two penalties but a very unfortunate penalty by Tom D gave St Mary`s some revived hope. South Hunsley and St Mary`s again scored their next penalty, forcing it to go to sudden death.
A penalty by Will H put the pressure on St Mary`s to score but a great save by the South Hunsley goalkeeper won the Humberside Cup for South Hunsley.
A greatly contested game by both sides, well done to everyone involved.
