Match report – Hugh Sexeys vs Westfield Academy Football
On the 16th of January Hugh Sexey travelled to Westfield Academy, hoping to put in a strong performance and progress to the 4th round of the cup. After a long journey to Yeovil the boys seem optimistic that they could win. The early exchanges in the game suggested it was going to be a tight match. Westfield took the lead with a good header, however Hugh Sexey responded strongly, scoring immediately. George cooly took his chance and slotted the ball into the bottom corner from outside the box. After a frantic first half the players went into half time 4-2 down; Jacob having scored a good goal after neat interplay with Jack, George and Vincent.
The start of the second half saw the game run away from Hugh Sexey with Westfield taking a commanding 7-2 lead. Noah's introduction from the bench brought fresh impetuous and he was able to score a quick fire hattrick. Unfortunately, the game ended 9-6. Both teams put up a great fight and it was a very end to end game as the score line tells. Special well done to the Year 7 boys who stepped in and did an unbelievable job. (Noah, Zak, Henry and Jack) Thank you to Westfield for hosting.
