U12s vs Ibstock Place

After a good start, producing two clear cut chances both saved by their excellent goalkeeper.
St. John's went 1:0 down after a breakaway goal. Whilst pressing to get the equaliser we conceded another breakaway goal to go 2:0 down.
Just before half time Nathan put the defence under pressure and forced a back pass which the goalkeeper picked up and this resulted in a free-kick.
This was taken quickly by Ife Ibrahim and converted by Demi Akarakim to leave it 2:1 at half time.
At the start of the second half St. John's took control of the game and scored a good team goal finished by Demi. Ife then scored a good individual effort to put us 3:2 ahead.
After some sloppy defending we conceded an equaliser to make it 3:3. Then after an outstanding run by Demi, he was fouled in the area to be awarded a penalty. He stepped and slotted it in the bottom left-hand corner.
After a tense last 10 minutes, the game ended with St. John's winning 4:3. We now are into the quarter-finals.
Well done!
