Result: Lost 2-6
Missing James through illness we put up a good fight in the face of strong opposition. Minster took the lead after some early pressure but we fought our way back into the match, forcing a string of corners. George then took advantage of a weak goal kick and had no trouble equalising. Quick thinking at a throw-in by Minster enabled them to regain the lead. The second half saw us string some good passes together, using the full width of the pitch and we again exerted pressure on their goal. Only some exceptional last-ditch defending prevented us from scoring. Some skilful attacking play took Minster further ahead of us. We continued to battle with some determined tackling - Keagan, Sam and Rory S fought hard in midfield, and George calmly added another goal towards the end of the game. A tough game but some good perseverance shown by all the boys.
Result: Won 3-1
A really good game for the Bs against a travelling Lincoln Minster team saw them victorious in a 3-1 win. Some excellent play from the boys, in particular as they were a young, largely Year 3, team meant that St Hugh’s put in a super performance and really enjoyed another competitive opportunity. Well done to all involved for playing well, and showing super sportsmanship.
