Sports Report - Year 9 Boys win football v Haygrove
The Year 9 boys triumphed in their football final defeating a determined Haygrove side 4-1 in convincing fashion. The boys started well but fell behind to a shot that was wickedly deflected beyond Joe Legg. This spurred the boys on with R Henderson and C Frost working tirelessly in midfield they soon took control. A sweeping move from the back saw W Andrews free on the left as he cut inside he unleashed an unstoppable right foot lob over the keeper to make it 1-1. With Chilton now confident they began to pile on the pressure and soon took the lead as C Frost found space in the box to turn and shoot into the bottom corner to make it 2-1 at half-time.
The second half saw Haygrove come at Chilton forcing them back into their own half. The defence of A Francis, A Attwood and H Huett stood firm showing fantastic organisation and composure. With the game in the balance the boys stormed forward creating numerous chances, from a B Cooper corner L Lemaitre rose highest to power home a header at the far post. The boys were now playing some great passing football and a F Henderson corner on the left saw J Salter sneak the ball over the line to clinch the game and a 4-1 victory.
All the boys put in an incredible effort and the trophy was a culmination of a great season for the boys who reached the county cup quarter finals earlier in the year.
