Year 8 Football Team progress to UEFA Cup Final

The Year 8 Football team travelled to Sprowston High School on Thursday 22nd Feb for their UEFA Cup semi final after winning their group before Christmas.  Sprowston had the majority of possession in the first half, but with resolute defending and hitting Sprowston on the counter attack, CAN took a 2 nil lead into half time.  Both  goals scored through debutant Alfie.

CAN started the second half slowly and Sprowston scored 2 quick goals to equalise.  The CAN boys showed great determination to not let their heads drop and kept challenging for every ball.  There were chances at both ends as the sides looked to push for the win.  Thankfully it was CAN that took there's through Alfie again, to make it 3-2.  Tyler G made a cracking save to tip the ball on to the cross bar and Tyler P made a superb last second block to stop Sprowston from equalising.  In the last seconds of the game Alfie went through 1 on 1 with the keeper to score his 4th of the game and make it 4-2 to CAN in a superb game.  Well done to all the boys for a brilliant performance.  We wish you the best of luck in the final.
