Haydock High School's Year 10 Football Team have been crowned Champions in the St Helens Town Cup, meaning our Year 10 are now champions of St Helens in both Rugby and Football. The team managed to overcome Rainhill High School in the final, after a 4-3 victory on penalties. It was a hard fought victory and the organisation and perseverance of the team paid dividends later in the game.
Late into the first half Haydock conceded a penalty due to an unfortunate handball, but goalkeeper Robbie Musker pulled off a stunning save to keep us in the game, with both teams going into the half time break with the score level at 0 - 0. Haydock went behind immediately in the second half, conceding a goal to put the score at 1 - 0 in favour of Rainhill, but the team kept their cool and rallied to equalise late on after a penalty was won and duly converted by Leon Wright, making the final score 1-1.
The game went straight to penalties and, again, Robbie Musker's heroics won the game after another stunning penalty save earned him the Man of the Match as well as giving the team the title of "St Helens Town Champions".
Team Captain Jack Davies said: “ We knew it would be tough to beat Rainhill but we stuck at it and we managed to get the win. All the way through the game we just ‘parked the bus’, and this tactic won the day in the end.”
Everyone at Haydock High School would like to congratulate the Year 10 Boys' Football Team on an excellent achievement representing the school and their year group. Well done!
