Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

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.
