City storm to tour­na­ment win at Bee­ston

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - SPORT -

CITY of Peter­bor­ough Un­der 14s won the Bee­ston Seven-a-side Tour­na­ment for the first time since 1990.

They recorded five wins and a draw in the their six games in the round robin event to be crowned cham­pi­ons.

They be­gan with a 5-0 vic­tory over Bee­ston Bees 5-0, play­ing some great pass­ing hockey with goals com­ing from cap­tain Ben Lo­mas plus two apiece from vice­cap­tain Os­car Sadi­cot and Bren­dan An­drews.

Their sec­ond match was a much closer af­fair and Lich­field hit the post three times and forced some fine saves from­keeper Cameron Goodey be­fore a well-taken goal from Os­car Sadi­cot gave City a 1-0 win.

Goodey was again in fine form as City fol­lowed up with a 1-0 vic­tory over West Bridgeford Mon­archs with Bren­dan An­drews’ strike seal­ing the points.

City then came up against Bee­ston Swarm, who were also un­beaten at that stage, but Lo­mas gave them a 1-0 win and round­ing the keeper to score.

Lo­mas net­ted again as City re­cov­ered from a nervy start to beat Rut­land 4-0 but An­drews was the star in that game with an im­pres­sive hat-trick.

That left City need­ing a draw or a win against Belper to se­cure the tro­phy but they con­ceded their first goal of the tour­na­ment be­fore Man­ish Pa­tel and Sadi­cot scored to fire City 2-1 ahead.

They were un­able to main­tain their 100 per cent record though and Rut­land scored again as the game fin­ished 2-2.

Goodey was named player- of- the- tour­na­ment while Sam An­der­son also stood out in a great team per­for­mance.

City also sent an Un­der 12 team, fea­tur­ing four play­ers un­der 11, to the tour­na­ment and they fin­ished fourth.

They lost to a very good Le­ices­ter side 5-0 but re­cov­ered well to beat Bee­ston Bees 3-2 and Belper 2-0 re­spec­tively with goals from Bren­dan An­drews (3) Kee­gan Yeo­man and Matt Jen­nings to qual­ify for the semi-final where they came up against a strong Bee­ston Swarm side and lost 5-0.

The Third/fourth Place Play-off ended in a 2-0 de­feat by Rut­land.
