Upland vs. Jubilee Primary
On Thursday 18th November, the Upland Football team played in the 3rd round of the Kevin McCarthy Cup against Jubilee Primary School.
The much anticipated game saw the boys being pushed even harder than in the previous matches, being kept on their toes throughout and having to fight hard to keep possession of the ball.
Jubilee scored late in the first half, but the determination and focus of the team saw a swift equaliser by Max Tebble before half time. The team again showed great teamwork and fantastic footwork to keep Jubilee at bay and the game finished at 1-1.
Due to the dark, the teams were unable to complete the penalty shoot-out and therefore Upland will now go through to the next round on away goals – the final score being 2-1 to Upland.
The season will now take a pause due to the dark nights and unpredictable weather, but we will be back and ready to fight for our place in February.
