Year 7 Boys are Borough Champions in Football!
On Tuesday 2nd May 2017, The Douay Martyrs Catholic School Year 7 faced Haydon School in the Hillingdon Cup Final for Football. We had already played Haydon earlier in the season and lost, so we knew we would be in for an extremely tough game. The first half was very even with both sides having chances to score, but the score stayed at 0-0. The score line gave Douay great confidence to up the tempo in the second half and two great individual goals from Nunu and Ellisha gave us a 2-0 lead, however this was not to last long. Haydon as expected fought back into the game and drew level meaning the score was now 2-2. A couple of attack minded substitutions from Douay allowed us to gain the lead again through Richard and with the help of our goalkeeper Alfie, we were able to see out the victory.
Well done to all involved and thank you to the parents and Mr Corish who were in attendance to watch a fantastic victory.
