Sports Report - Year 11 Boys Football
This evening the Year 11 Boys team entertained Courtfields in the 2nd round of the County Cup in what turned out to be a tight affair. The game started evenly before the forward line of B Cooper, T Luke and W Andrews began to get in behind the visitors defence. A great move down the right resulted in C Frost and A Francis combining for W Andrews to expertly volley home at the far post.
The 2nd Half saw Chilton start in sloppy fashion as they failed to clear their lines resulting a Courtfields attacker finishing well from a tight angle. The boys rallied and began to take control as A Attwood, A Francis and J Salter launched numerous attacks. T Luke and B Cooper worked hard without reward as Courtfield's defended well. With time running out and Chilton looking to get a late winner the visitors broke quickly and forced a corner. From the corner A Kirkpatrick's headed clearance hit a Courtfield's attacker on the shoulder and into the corner of the net. With no time left in the game the visitors held out for a 2-1 victory.
The boys were disappointed with the result as they worked hard throughout, with a little more organisation they can look forward to league games after Christmas with a chance of reaching the area finals.
