So the game kicked of with lots of chances from both teams but after about 10 minutes St Mary’s scored a great goal for say Wom number 10. The score was now St Mary’s 1 Wheatcroft 0 it has been a  tough match so far but wait a minute Charlie is running

down the wing he passes it to Olly and he shoots and scores a cracking goal from the edge of the box Olly he has got an open goal surely YES 1-1 Olly has equalized great play from Wheatcroft School,

The whistle is just about to blow but it is not a very good clearance from Etson number 6 crosses  sweet volley and it’s a goal just before half -time it’s unlucky for luke the keeper i say a defensive error what are your thoughts charlie it is extremely unlucky from Wheatcroft school Etson had to clear the ball poor defensive error there 2-1 to St mary’s.


Half time now and wheatcroft are making some changes  3 subs are coming on Charlie, Harry and Lennon are coming off and alex D Elliot and Max are coming on


So the second half kicks of with some good passing from both teams st Mary’s heading forward but a strong tackle from Oliver and Max is having his first touches on the ball after a burst of speed max breaks through the defense and has a shot on goal sadly for wheatcroft it was narrowly wide


The match has about 10 mins left and wheatcroft are making  a substitution Olly is coming off and Harry is going on after more great play from both sides more subs are coming on for wheatcroft to boost the team and get more goals Charlie is on for Max and Lennon on for Oliver.

After a great save from the St Mary’s goalkeeper Wheatcroft make another sub which is Olly on for Alex Francis. The game is nearing the end and wheatcroft get a corner and Harry plays it short to Olly and he whips the ball into the box but it is cleared by a St Mary’s head.

It is the last minute now and St mary’s have a shot and unfortunately after all their hard work St Mary’s score last kick off the game
