Leeds Cup Final    

Lawnswood Vs Allerton Grange

On Wednesday the 26th of May Lawnswood played Allerton Grange in the Leeds Cup final. In the first half Lawnswood started off strongly and they had the most chances and possession. However, Allerton scored first with a deflection that floated into the top corner but Lawnswood didn’t drop their heads and got awarded a penalty late into the first half. Oliver Cade bravely stepped up to take it and hit the crossbar and unluckily went over behind the goal.

The half-time team talk focussed on being confident that we were the better team, and that goals would come at some point in the game. It just hadn’t happened yet.

Lawnswood had a great start to the second half and scored two goals in the space of 10 minutes which were scored by Kenson Morton and Diogo Soares. It was now 2-1 to Lawnswood and Kenson Morton was the next person to score taking three people on in the 18-yard box and slotted it past the keeper making it 3-1. Yet again Lawnswood were the next to score; Josh Prince had an amazing run down the left touchline from his own half, he then reached the 18-yard box and his cross/shot went straight into the far corner. Lawnswood now thought they had won and got complacent, which allowed Allerton to score two goals in 3 minutes making it 4-3 with 7 minutes left on the clock. With only 5 minutes to go Kenson Morton sealed the win and topped off his hat trick with a one on one with the keeper. Lawnswood had, for the first time in the school’s history then won the Leeds cup 5-3 which made them champions of Leeds!
