The U13 boys travelled to Oundle to play in a triangular against the hosts and Spratton Hall.
This was a rare fixture as it was an 11-a-side larger pitch rather than the more usual 7-a-side half pitch.
The team was well balanced with the boys all knowing their roles and positions on the pitch.
The first game was against Spratton Hall and St. Hugh’s scored after three minutes after a cross by Dan G evaded the keeper and crept in the far post. Three minutes later Elliot A scored after some trickery in the D. An own goal by Spratton Hall made it 3-0 at half time.
In the second half we played with 10 boys as we had an injury to Huxley S and during this half we failed to add to our tally after some super goalkeeping, including a triple save. Spratton Hall got one back making the final score 3-1 to St. Hugh’s.
In the second game against the hosts it was a much tighter affair with the play being very cramped down the middle. We got the only goal of the first half as Captain Thomas B hit a rocket from a short corner through the goalie’s legs.
In the second half Thomas scored his second, again from a short corner. Two minutes later Elliot made it 3-0 and St Hugh’s ran out winners.
