We entered the Maypole FC schools football tournament this year for the very first time, the standard was exceptionally high with 11 schools entering the competition from all different regions of Birmingham. We were split into groups with only 1st and 2nd place making their way into the semi-finals. We managed to win every game in our group which qualified us for the semi-finals, we went into the semi-finals very confident and played some amazing football at times creating over 10 good opportunities to score but the ball wouldn’t hit the back of the net. After the full time whistle had blown the score was still tied at 0-0 so we went straight into penalties, we lost the toss and had to shoot second. The scores were tied at 3 scored and one miss each, they scored making it 4-3 so we needed to score! Unfortunately we missed meaning we got knocked out in the semi-finals. The guys were gutted because we played so well not losing a match all tournament, losing on penalties felt so cruel, but thats sport! Nevertheless well done guys great effort!
