Year 11 Sentinel Shield

 

Y11 sentinel Shield campaign March 19th

 

 

The Year 11 Boys Football Team sealed their place in the Quarter Finals of the Sentinel Shield Tuesday 19th March with a comfortable 4.1 home win against Madeley High School.

The home side showed their strength from the onset with some slick passing around the solid Madeley defence. This persistent pressure saw shot after shot from the St Peter's front line but their defensive line stood firm with their keeper making some excellent saves. The home side continued to dominate throughout the first half with wave after wave of dangerous attacks but with no luck. Madeley had a clear plan to put their players behind the ball and managed to keep the score at 0.0.

The second half started like the first with St Peter's dominating possession which saw the Madeley keeper bombarded with shots but still no goal until 10 minutes in when Captain Sonny Bates fired a shot from 25 yards at the, up to now unflappable keeper and saw it slip through his hands and in the back of the net to make it 1 nil.

This small bit of good fortune although well deserved gave the home side confidence and it wasn't long before some great work on the wing and a great cross by sub Richard Ansah eased the ball onto the head of Bartosz Abratanski who made it 2.0.

St Peter's then found ways behind the defense that weren't there in the first half and 5 minutes on, Eren Alici went on a great run on the left wing and beat 3 defenders and slotted the ball home from 8 yards to give the home side a 3 goal cushion. Lewis Ibbs then stepped up with his fierce left foot and smashed a stunning half volley from 35 yards and into the bottom corner to make it 4 (unbelievable Jeff!)

St Peter's then took their foot off the pedal in the dying minutes which allowed Madeley a consolation.

St Peter's will now face Blythe Bridge in the Quarter Finals.

A stunning, patient performance from the whole team with some outstanding football being played with everyone playing their part but man of the match goes to Oliver Sukiennicki who was all over the park and kept us on the front foot.  Well done to all!
