Robertswood came agonisingly close to winning the county finals but lost 4-3 on penalties to Haddenham.
Here’s how the morning unfolded.
Match 1 - Won the first game 1-0 against Downley. Brilliant defence and super goal on the break from AY! One more game in the group stage and then semi-finals at least to come.
Match 2 Tightly fought 0-0 against William Harding neither sides had chances to score. However, the draw is enough to go through as group winners!
Match 3 Just about to kick off the semi vs Great Missenden (Again!) 1-1 after extra time - penalties HW with a very deserved equaliser. On top for the whole game and very unlucky to have to do pens.
JS the hero, saving 5!
The final - Dominated the whole game, clearly the better side, couldn't quite force the goal. Lost 4-3 on penalties but they have been an absolute credit to themselves and to the school. All absolutely gutted but couldn't be prouder.
Robertswood kicked off their league campaign with a draw at home against Butlers’s Court. Having played the same team 2 months ago and lost heavily, Tuesday’s 2-2 result represented progress. Some determined defending, including some fantastic saves from CB in goal denied the visitors on several occasions and gave a foundation for Robertwood’s attack. A lot of good build up was rewarded with a 2-goal lead going into the last quarter of the match but energy and concentration levels decreasing in the gloom meant that Butler’s Court managed to score twice before the final whistle. At least the points were shared going into the winter break.
Lost 4-0, played really well - very understrength and it showed towards the end. As always, we were exemplary in how we played the game and kept going right to the end. JS in goal was fantastic and JD and RH did a really good job of trying to carry a threat towards St Joseph’s goal. Just caught by a bit of naivety and lack of match experience.
