Year 8 Football Team Progress
The Year 8 Boys’ Football team played away against Bacup & Rawtenstall Grammar School on Monday 20th January in the Lancashire Cup. The initiative was taken by St Mary’s early in the fixture and it was no surprise when they took the lead early in the first half. Although, BRGS did equalise, it was not long before St Mary’s regained the advantage, and then further extended the lead before half-time.
Despite a large amount of the possession in the second half, St Mary’s were unable to score again. Two goals being disallowed and the woodwork being struck on three occasions demonstrates the dominance by the away team in the second half.
Final score: 3-1 to St Mary’s
Credit to the goalscorers; Alexander Lees, Conor Campbell and Ethan Shaw. However, this was a thoroughly good, whole team performance. The boys will be at home in the quarter-final, which is to be played by 28th February.
