Heath Park narrowly beat Smestow in the Year 8 Cup Final after a great cup run.
The boys were incredible and fully deserved the win. Heath Park dominated possession for the majority of the game, playing some great football. At one point Luke Sarullo was one-on-one, with only the opposition goalkeeper to beat, rippling the back of the net – only for the linesman to raise his flag for offside!
Heath Park continued to attack and fire shots at the ‘keeper, some just going narrowly wide. The Smestow ‘keeper mis-kicked a goal-kick which hung in the air for Jamahl, who played the ball to Callum Cottee just outside box. Callum struck the ball with perfect precision and the ball rockets straight into the top corner. 1-0 to Heath Park.
Smestow started off strong and solid in the second half, but Heath Park’s defence played well throughout, intercepting the ball from the opposition. Heath Park stuck together and came out with the 1-0 win.
