Y7 Football Team Success (and again)

The year 7 Football team played Holy Family Catholic High School from Liverpool on Thursday 13th January. This fixture was in the last 32 of the English school’s cup, nearly 800 teams originally entered.  The game was so tense, few goal scoring opportunities arose for both teams. Holy Family nearly stole the victory but thanks to a sliding challenge from Joe Hodgkinson to prevent the ball crossing the goal line, meant the game went to extra time. Unity had the best chance of the game when Morgan Shapland went clean through on goal with 2 minutes of extra time remaining
