Chilcote Boys vs Yardley Wood

On Friday 3rd November the Chilcote boys’ football team played against Yardley Wood school at Yardley Wood playing fields. 

This was their final league game before Christmas. If the boys drew or won the game then they would be the winners of their group and qualify for the top league after Christmas.

The game started well for both teams with both playing good football and trying to create an opening. The first clear cut chance fell to Chilcote via the penalty spot. Dylan hit the ball well but put it the wrong side of the post. Chilcote were just shading things but struggled to get a goal. Then, Yardley Wood got a lucky ricochet which fell to their striker who side stepped the goalkeeper and scored to make it 1v0. 

In the second half, Chilcote improved and started to take control of the game. They created a few half chances and a couple of really good chances but either they put it wide or the Yardley Wood goalie was equal to the attempt. With 10 minutes to go Chilcote went all out attack with both forwards on and a few minutes from the end it paid off as they got the deserved equaliser through Harrison who was in the right place at the right time when the goalkeeper spilled the ball. Right at the death Ben had a chance to win the game but put the ball the wrong side of the post. A tough match and a good point which means the boys have won their group!

Well done to all involved for a great comeback and good result!!!
