The Year 10’s capped off a great few weeks as they reached the Londonderry Cup semi-final. Faced with the unenvious task of travelling to Dykehouse for the second time this season the lads knew they were in for a tough test against one of the strongest teams in the North East.
Hurworth started terribly, falling 2-0 down and facing a heavy defeat against a team that were playing some excellent football. A goalkeeping error let Hurworth back into the game just before half time at 2-1. Hurworth grabbed an equaliser, however, it seemed to spur Dykehouse on as they stepped up their game and looked to be running away with it at 4-2 with 9 minutes left. Hurworth showed unbelievable character, never giving up and working hard despite being outplayed for large parts of the game. Hurworth somehow running out 6-4 winners. Goals coming from Foster, Clendenning and Wilson (4). Big congrats to Wilson for scoring his 50th, 51st, 52nd and 53rd goals of this seasons school campaign, fantastic effort.
The lads now face another difficult few weeks after drawing Cardinal Hume in the semi-finals of both county cups. Well done to all the lads, absolutely outstanding performance!
