U13 Boys County Cup Football v Bishop Stopford - 11/12/23
After a closely fought of round of 16 results, the boys were motivated going into this game with the semi-finals on the horizon.
CCS started very strongly taking a quick 2-0 lead. However, this was cut short as Bishop scored 2 free-kicks, taking us into half-time drawing 2-2. The possibility of extra-time and penalties was something the boys did not want to entertain and went into the second half positive and ready to take the game away from Bishop, which they did, taking a 4-2 lead going into the final 15 minutes.
Bishop pulled one back to make it 4-3 before equalising again, making it 4-4. The games high pace and energy ensured it was a frantic last 5 minutes. Bishop hit the post with a free kick and within the final few seconds, scored, but to the CCS boys relief this was ruled out for being offside. Another county cup game that went to extra-time, the intensity of the game didn’t drop with both sides going close to a winner. However, extra-time came to an end and, in to a penalty shootout the boys went…
The boys were clinical scoring 4 of their penalties with Bishop scoring two, but Lenny F made two fantastic saves, securing the CCS win taking them through into the semi-final.
