Football's coming home...

14th Jun 2019

In the inaugural 'Estate Cup' played at the home of football (our pitch at the back of the school), Sunnylands came out on top after a pulsating game of football against Woodlawn.

To put the game in context, the visitors have won every trophy available this season and have been very much the inform team.

Their quality showed in the first half when they bombarded our goal, but a combination of last ditch defending and cat-like reflexes from Riley in nets, kept the score down to 2 nil at the break.

The second half was a different story. Sunnylands came out of the blocks with a point to prove and scored 2 great, team goals to even the match.

The last 5 minutes went back and forth with both teams creating great chances but the deadlock could not be broken so it went to penalties.

As finger nails were being chewed quicker than the burgers and hot dogs available on the BBQ, Riley again proved his worth with a top drawer save and Jude slotted in the winning penalty with aplomb!

Sunnylands ensure the visitors did not make a clean sweep of all trophies this season as the one 'they really wanted' stayed on home territory.

I am already looking forward to next season 😎🏆⚽️
