Sirius North started brightly and began to dominate the opening stages of the game, playing some good football and creating several opportunities. However, neither Sam Miles nor Alfie Milnes could convert with both students hitting the woodwork.
The missed chances in the first 15 minutes of the game, haunted us, as Kelvin Hall played two long balls over the top, causing a mis-communication between Arthur, Callum and Kacper, which lead to Kelvin taking a 2-0 advantage. The score line wasn’t a true reflection of the opening 25 minutes of play.
Josh Russell and Tom Downing began to control the game in the middle of the park, both creating opportunities for Dylan and Alfie but both boys did not have their shooting boots on. (A little ironic to say the least, because Dylan had just spent over £120 on a new pair of boots).
The final ten minutes of the first half, played out like the first 25 minutes. With Sirius North playing attractive football with no end product. Kelvin Hall opting for the Stoke City approach on a cold dark night in February. However, the ugly football was a success for Kelvin, scoring two more goals before half time.
In the second half, Alfie finished two chances making the game 4-2 and it looked like the perfect comeback was on. It wasn’t meant to be with one offside decision going against Sirius North and one in favour for Kelvin meant the game finished 5-2.
The cup run is over for the Yr 11 team.
