On Friday 17th of February our Year 9 and 10 boys took part in the Indoor Football tournament as a part of Věra Čáslavská Cup. There were 6 schools represented in total and the Park Lane team got off to a perfect start with a 2-0 win in their first game thanks to our goalscorer Kilian K. and great work by our goalkeeper Jan A. In the second game Park Lane had a hard fought battle and just when it looked like the game was going to end 0-0 the opposition team scored in the final seconds before the referee blew the whistle which meant we suffered our first defeat 1-0. However, we did just enough to get through to the semi-final where we were up against a very strong team. Our students showed no fear and if it were not for the opposition goalkeeper saving every shot we could have won the game. This was our first tournament with these students but they showed great determination and are already looking forward to their next competition.
