The two finalists: The Red Army and The Annonymous
in the line up before the game
The Past Pupils 5-a-side Football tournament had an exciting day today with the Annonymous and Red Army reaching the finals and Y2K and Lala FC contesting for the third and fourth place. The finalists played a wonderful game with both sides having a terrific control of the ball with their short and accurate passing. However it was the Annonymous who got the first goal on account of a silly error of the Red Army players. Not put out with a 1-0 score, the Red Army battled their way through and got their equalizer just a minute before the refree blew his final whistle. The game, a draw at the final whistle, went into penalties and it was The Annonymous who scored the victory in the penalty shoot-out.
