Year 3 Summer Fields Tournament

The Dragons, brimming with confidence, got their campaign off to a flying start as they won 9-0 in their first group game against Summer Fields B with Charles scoring a hat trick and Lucian grabbing a brace. Captain Grayson, Benji, George D and Casper also added to the tally.

Last year’s winners, Papplewick A, were up next who were a decent side and very well organised. The Dragons however, were on a mission and piled on the pressure as Charles scored the only goal of the game to win 1-0. The boys topped their group with an impressive 5-0 win v Eaton House and 6-0 Hawksdown House.

They played Garden House in the quarter finals and Charles found the net twice as the boys trooped into the semi-final. Christchurch School rarely troubled them as George D and Charles were on target, as they won 2-0. The Dragons made the final in pretty impressive form, for the 3rd time in three years!

Papplewick awaited them in the final, which turned out to be an extremely close encounter. It was 0-0 after full time, and with penalties looming it was up to the boys to bring it home. Papplewick put one of theirs wide, then Grayson, George D and George M scored all 3 of their penalties and won the cup for Wetherby! The boys were terrific from start to finish and didn’t concede a single goal all afternoon – what a wonderful tournament!
