Thursday 19th May
Our final fixture in the league was hosted by Middleton St Mary’s and what a great game it was!
The first half was tense with lots of attempts on goal by both teams. Middleton St Mary’s got 2 goals but Clapgate stayed strong and continued battling. This ensured Jacob could have an attempt on goal and was successful making it 2-1 to Middleton St Mary’s.
The second half was exhilarating with goals galore taking place. 2 own goals, 1 aside led to it being 1-1.
Jacob and Kaiden worked very well together in attack with Jacob sending the ball to Kaiden who struck the ball to make it 2-1 to Clapgate! The game continued to be very back and forth but Clapgate held their own, working together as a team and concentrating throughout. Ollie had an amazing attempt on goal and scored!! This made our final score 3-1! A fab result and well deserved.
A huge well done to our Y5/6 team. They have worked so hard all season- brilliant teamwork, remaining motivated and continuing to battle in every game!
