Year 11 football team beat Ivybridge Academy 3 – 2 and are in to round 6, last 32 in the country. Another HUGE result: Y11s beat Ivybridge in Round 5 of the National Cup, to reach Round 6 and the last 32 in the Country. What was even more incredible about the victory was the fact that the boys went 2-0 down after just 15 minutes. They showed huge character and got a quick goal back via the head of Kai Cornish and were level before half time thanks to Callum Thompson’s low strike. The comeback was completed midway through the second half when Dale Bowden headed home from close range from a corner. The defence had to sustain some serious pressure in the last ten minutes to hold firm and secure a famous victory.
