U12 Blacks knocked out in Wickersley Quarter Final

The Junior Blades U12 went out to a late goal in the Quarter Final of the Wickersley tournament against Dronfield Town.

The Blades were unlucky to concede a goal directly from a corner as the boys battled against the blustery conditions.

The team had gone unbeaten in the group stages with 3 wins and a draw and had managed 4 clean sheets in the process.

In difficult conditions with a sloped pitch and the wind blowing hard down the slope the Blades fought hard in the quarter final against a strong Dronfield Town. The Blades went close with a one on one from Alex being well saved by the Town keeper and Zac being unlucky when his lobbed attempt was headed off the line by a Town defender.

In the end, the Blades were cruelly defeated when an inswinging corner sneaked into the near post helped by the blustery wind. The goal came too late for the Blades to launch a comeback and the Blades bowed out at the Quarter Final stage.

The boys were obviously disappointed to have not gone further in the competition but overall the performances were encouraging and the team is looking forward to next weekend when they compete in the Hoyland tournament.
