Football

The U11 football team progressed through to the semi-final of the football league competition on Wednesday as they overcame a spirited Our Lady of Lourdes team in dramatic fashion.

Having gone two goals behind the boys managed to turn the fixture round and sneak into a three-two lead. However in the dying moments of the game Our Lady of Lourdes found an equaliser to take the game to extra time and ultimately the dreaded penalty shootout.

In a nail-biting finale, Carter produced some excellent saves, ensuring that he didn't concede at all during the shoot-out, whilst Oliver and Hakim converted the vital kicks to send the team through to the semi-finals.

Our Lady of Lourdes will be looking for revenge on May 2nd as the two teams face each other once again, this time in the quarter finals of the Knock out cup competition.
