St. John’s U12s vs Priory Academy – first round of the National Cup

St. John’s U12s went to Priory Academy for the first round of the National Cup yesterday. The game started tensely and no chances for about 10 minutes. Then Ethan Nwaneri made a solo run which resulted in an excellent save from their goalkeeper. Then another run was rewarded by a penalty which again was saved by the keeper. Half time and 0:0. Very evenly matched game. Priory had a chance early on and a brilliant save from Soraiz Mois kept out a great shot. This woke us up a little and Ethan ran through the whole defence and placed the ball in the top corner 1:0 St. John’s. For 20 mins we defended the lead with more good saves and hard work from all the team. Great first game and I am very proud of the boys - Mr Hodgson.
