Schools Welsh Cup: Update on U14s Football
by Mrs K Davies - Tuesday, 7 October 2014, 09:56 AM
 
The U14s Boys Football team were unlucky to lose to Brynteg 4 - 2 in the first round of the Schools Welsh Cup. In a game where there were chances galore for both teams, it was the quality of finishing and a degree of luck that prevented the Archbishop McGrath team from progressing.
After conceding in the first few minutes, the confidence of the team was low and they soon found themselves three goals down soon after. From there on it was an uphill battle. One which looked like being overcome as Archbishop piled on the pressure, grabbing one back and looking a different team. Having had one shot hit the cross bar and another cleared off the line with the Brynteg goalkeeper beaten, the tide seemed to have turned. Numerous chances were missed and unfortunately nothing seemed to want to go in.
Little changed in the way of luck in the second half with a goal disallowed for offside and the cross bar struck again. In spite of all the Archbishop pressure, Brynteg scored on the counter attack to make it 4 - 1. Archbishop soon pulled one back with a fine chip over the keeper to make it 4 - 2, but it was too little too late as the game finished shortly after.
