On a very wet Wednesday afternoon at North Leamington school, Southam 6th Form football team took part in a 7 a side tournament involving another 7 teams.
Southam’s first game of the group stages was against Alcester Grammar School. The side started well and raced into a 2 goal lead through Owen and Addison. Southam saw the game out with good defending from Ben and George and won the game 2-0.
The second group game was an entertaining 2-2 draw with Kineton. Goals from Fin and Riley put Southam 2-1 up until Kineton scored with the last kick of the game.
The final group game was against Aylesford. Southam knew a point would be enough to qualify. Southam played well and had multiple shots on goal but were constantly denied by great goalkeeping. Eventually a goal was scored by Owen after an Addison assist from an indirect free kick. A great strike into the top corner.
Southam qualified for the final against Myton. Southam has to play the majority of the final with a man less after Riley got injured early on. This didn’t stop Southam and another great finish from Owen secured a 1-0 win for the team.
Well done gents on winning the tournament!
