Football: ISFA Boodles U18 Cup - 3-2 win on penalties takes 1st XI through to Quarter Finals

Wednesday 14 November 2012

The 1st XI travelled to Hammersmith on Wednesday 14th November to play Latymer Upper School in the 3rd Round of the ISFA Boodles U18 Cup.

It was a tough game against a big, fit and strong team who made life very difficult for our players.  With just 3 minutes left to play, Shrewsbury were 2-1 down.  Ben Gould, our goalie, scored the equaliser from a corner, and at the end of extra time it was still 2-2.

In a tense penalty shoot-out, Ben saved 3 penalties, and Shrewsbury eventually won the match 3-2.

Our 1st XI now go through to the Quarter Finals - the draw will be made later this week.
