Another win in the Under 10 Football Cup!
This afternoon, Wednesday, the Under 10 team consisting of P5 and P6 players, defeated St. Oliver Plunkett by four goals to three in an incredibly tight match.
The match began with both teams having their periods of superiority before Riley met Zach's corner with a perfect header to send Victoria Park one nil up. The visitors responded well and were able to find two goals of their own to head into half time in the lead.
Victoria Park wasted no time after the restart, with Evan equalising within a minute before he bagged his second soon after. The game continued to be end to end before St. Oliver Plunkett were able to force the ball home and bring the match to three all. With only a few minutes remaining, it seemed as though the game was headed for extra time, however a misplaced corner by the visitors saw Lee N. pounce. He picked up the ball in the centre circle, turned his man and ran under constant pressure, before hammering the ball into the back of the net.
A superb result against a quality side means the team now wait for the quarter final draw.
Team: Lee B. (GK), Lewis, Jackson, Sebastian, Zach, Jay Jay, Evan, Riley, Lee N., Alex, Dawid.
