Resilient St Joseph’s recover to win tournament
PUBLISHED: 10:33 01 August 2012
A gutsy fightback from two goals down against the hosts saved St Joseph’s 88 under-12s as they triumphed in the Kodak tournament.
St Joe’s – who almost missed the registration deadline for the tournament – won their group but then found themselves trailing 2-0 to Kodak A in the semi-final.
But exceptional goals from Haaris Hussein, Elliot Bonds and Farhad Amiri, along with imperious defending, enabled the Kenton-based club to turn the game around and reach the final, where they defeated LNER to secure the trophy.
Anyone interested in joining St Joseph’s under-12s for next season should contact coach Joseph Bonds on 0777 440 6742.
