Semi Final – St Peter 3 v St Ouen 1
Congratulations to the boys for putting in an outstanding team performance to reach the Springfield final!
As in previous matches against St Ouen this was always going to be a close affair. The game was surprisingly open with both teams looking dangerous on the attack.
St Ouen took the lead after a mistimed tackle led to a penalty, which our Goalkeeper for the day, Under 16 Nicolai Hansen almost got to.
Fair play to our boys who could have gone into their shell against a much older team. We came back strongly and equalized through a Jake Hutchinson header. Then on the stroke of half time Jake added his second with a powerful finish from 12 yards!
A big second half was required and our boys didn’t let anyone down, with the whole squad putting in a real shift! This was perfectly highlighted in the last minute when Daniel Gotel chased a ‘lost cause’ and won the ball back in the corner and rolled the ball to Jake to complete a fine hat trick!
Coach: Gary Freeman
