Game 10 : Whitefriars 2 Greenfriars 0

Posted by Patrick Veasey on 8 June 2019

The Greenfriars came into game 10 of the Centenary Challenge with victory in sight. A win would secure for them the 100 year old trophy, but the Whites were committed to taking the competition to the wire. From the push both teams battled hard to gain the advantage with defence and keepers tested at both ends of the pitch. Although both teams came close, it was the Whites who broke the deadlock, a well worked mid-field move gave Sarah Booker a shooting chance, finding the back of the net with a crisp shot from the top of the D. 

The second half was almost a facsimile of the first with the Greens fighting hard to level the score and the Whites pushing to extend their lead. Greens’ keeper young Austin Jacques put up a sterling defence of his goal denying Conner Jones, Sarah Booker and Alex Harcourt who all had excellent chances to seal the result. The death blow finally came from a well worked short corner, Pat Veasey’s flick towards the top corner was first padded down by Jaques and then cleared off the line by Scott Denny, only to be slammed into the net by veteran Steve Shipman. 

With the final result 2 nil to the Whites, the fate of the 100 year old trophy now rests on the final game. When the teams meet again on Saturday 22nd June you can expect drama, excitement and emotion as this amazing competition reaches it finale!
