HBHS 1st XI Football team remain top of the table after win over Cambridge High School

On the 18th of June the HBHS 1st XI took on their Cambridge High School counterparts in the fifth round of the Premier Boys Division 1 competition.

Under the lights at Gower Park, the HBHS 1st XI Football team took on Cambridge High School in the fifth round of the Premier Boys Division 1 competition.  After an unfortunate mid-week result, the boys were looking to end the week on a high.  Utilising this mid-week pain the boys came out firing and created multiple scoring chances.  We came close early on, hitting the crossbar, before Daniel Steffert opened the scoring with a tidy finish inside the six-yard box.  The domination continued and soon paid off again, via a cracking finish from Sopharachwathanak Bee Hong.  We went into halftime 2 - 0 up, feeling comfortable.  We knew Cambridge would come out firing and they did just that.  However, the defence held strong and a great team goal finished off by Legion Rogerson saw us go 3 - 0 up. Unfortunately, we went down to ten men with 10 minutes to play and Cambridge converting their spot-kick saw the score go to 3 - 1.  But after some strong defence and a quick counter-attack goal finished by Jomig Wenceslao, the game was put to bed as we won 4 - 1.
