YEAR 7s SCOOP AREA CUP WITH A SUPERB 6:0 WIN!
Following a convincing 7:2 victory against Wensleydale in the semi-final, Richmond were fired up for the final! They started strongly against Stokesley, sticking to the game plan. Richmond struck early with a well-taken finish from Jake. Shortly after, Henry scored a great goal to make it 2-0 and Richmond looked comfortable. Stokesley were working hard to press and create some good chances but some excellent goal keeping by Bertie kept us in the game. Two more goals followed in the first half by Justin and another from Jake, making it 4:0 at half time.
In the second half, Richmond kept the pressure on and a testing cords in by Henry led to an own goal by Stokesley. Stokesley tried to fight back again and when Bertie was caught off his line a fantastic chase back and clearance off the line from Nathan helped Richmond keep their clean sheet.
The final goal of the game came from a fine finish by Joe sealing the game 6:0.
Tom Westgate, PE Teacher, said: “A brilliant team performance and the perfect way to finish the Area Cup competition.”
