Ellis Guilford 3-2 Joseph Whitaker

County Cup Semi-Final, Ellis Guilford School, Monday 16th May

Match Report by Mr Lever

Ellis played the better football and won the battle on the floor, being first to every tackle and wanting the ball more. Silvio Bello scored our first goal after a long throw from Elliot Morley.

Joseph Whitaker came back and scored a goal on the counter-attack to even things up 1-1.

After breaking away down the left and taking on two defenders Elliot Morley fired a shot into the top corner to re-take the lead.

A good cross from Joseph Whitaker lead to Equaughn Eves slotting home into his own net to level the game again at 2-2.

Brandon Bates stepped up to take a free kick from 35 yards with ten minutes to go and smashed it into the top right-hand corner to take the lead and seal the win.
