On Tuesday 12th June, the year 7 Football played St Bedes in the Bradford Schools play-off, the winner of which would go through to the Bradford Schools final. Having comfortably won the Bradford West division without conceding a goal, the Year 7 squad were full of confidence and took this into the semi-final, with Xantino scoring the opening goal after some brilliant supporting play from Bobby. An unfortunate defensive error allowed St Bedes to score the equalizer and creep back into the game. In the second half, fatigue starting taking its toll, with the bigger St Bedes team making inroads into the Thornton defence, scoring 2 goals in the process, taking the score to 3-1. Star man Mason kept up his impressive work rate, with Ronnie and Edward working well in the midfield, putting pressure on the St Bedes defence. Xantino slotted home a penalty to bring it back to 3-2 but unfortunately it was too late and St Bedes progressed through to the final.
Well Done boys!!
