Our Lady’s wins pool
OUR Lady’s RC Primary School are through to the English Schools District 7-a-side county finals after winning the Chesham pool on Saturday.
The Amersham-based youngsters had to do it the hard way, avenging a group stage defeat to Chalfont St Peter Academy in the final, having survived a breathtaking last four clash with Gerrard’s Cross.
Two convincing wins got the day off to the perfect start before progress was checked by the 1-0 defeat to Chalfont St Peter.
Playing the other group winners, Gerrard’s Cross, in the semis, Our Lady’s took the lead twice, but survived a scary moment when their opponents struck the woodwork in the final minute.
The final saw them face their earlier conquerors once more and this time there was no mistake as goals from Johnnie O’Sullivan and Adam Smith sealed a 2-0 win and gave them their ticket to county finals day later in the year.
