Had a great first half of the tournament. Won our group, beating Seer Green and Lent Rise comfortably and then drawing our final game against St Teresa's to qualify as group winners for the next stage. RH and JS with goals and CB super in goal as always. Superb TEAM effort!
A much higher standard in the second half of the tournament with Robertswood losing the first two games. The team have been excellent in the way they have tried to play the game which has been great to see.
Robertswood will have to wait nervously to see whether they progress to the knockout phase of the year 5 season-long tournament as best runners up after losing 4-2 to Seer Green. The home side were behind early on in the game conceding an unlucky goal resulting from a ricochet off the goalkeeper. Robertswood went onto play some assured and attractive football but were unable to convert several of their chances. Meanwhile, Seer Green capitalized on the home side’s misfortune and extended their lead as Robertwood’s shape deteriorated. Robertswood managed to rally late on and score a second goal.
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.
