Cup Football

Today, we played our first cup football match. It was a thrilling, hard fought battle which ended 3-3 after extra time. Although we led the game 3 times we were taken to penalties. Unfortunately, it was not our day and we ended up losing on penalties. The boys were brilliant and represented the school fantastically.
