Team: Kyle, Maxim, Tyler, Giovanni, Abraham, Lewis, Logan, Harley, Deneal, Bailey, Indervir, Rohi
We arrived at Bilston Primary for our Semi Final to what felt like an away game with the amount of Manor parents on the side line. Starting the game brightly, we had a lot of the ball, something which the opposition clearly weren’t used to. We won some free kicks from late tackles, one of which was hit into the top corner by Logan to make it 1-0 to us. We then soaked up some pressure from both wings until a penalty was given to Manor. This was scored to make it 1-1 – a disappointing way to concede.
In the second half, we took the full force of the Manor attacks and Kyle made some excellent saves. We also sustained several injuries leaving us with only 9 players to see us to the end of the game, which we did comfortably to take the game into extra time.
Extra time was nerve-wracking. Kyle made an amazing double save – Manor knew it wasn’t going to be easy getting past him if it went to penalties. And so it proved.
Deneal, Bailey, Rohi, Logan and Harley volunteered to take the penalties. Harley wasn’t needed as the first four penalty takers all scored and Kyle saved the last penalty to make it 4-1 to Fallings Park. We play Stow Heath in the final next Friday.
