Boys bow out in ESFA semi-finals

On Friday afternoon a team of 8 boys from St Joseph's travelled to Bridgwater and Taunton College to compete in the ESFA Area Tournament. The boys began the group stage of the competition with three wins out of three and victories against St Mary's (1-0), Somerset Bridge (1-0) and Kingmoor (1-0).


Progressing to the semi-finals, confidence was high in light of the brilliant football they had been playing. The boys were truly magnificent in this match, matching their opposition in all areas of the field. As the game neared the end, a goalless draw looked the likely result. However, we all know how cruel competitive sport can be and a last minute strike from an extremely competitive BCA meant that the boys were sadly knocked out of the competition! It was heartbreaking for the team, but they should be very proud of how they conducted themselves, both on and off the pitch - they were quite simply superb!! WELL DONE!!
