Louie saves the day in penalty shoot out

Newport boys started the season with a great first round win in the Hampshire Cup against Oakley this afternoon.

With 8 boys making their first team debuts , the boys played really well and showed great determination and promising teamwork. Callum opened the scoring and then Reece added 2 great goals in the second half and were leading 3-2 in the final minute when a shot ricoched in from a narrow angle into the net to level the scores.
Extra time was a stalemate with the reds "dead on their feet" and holdng on for the final 5 minutes. In a thrilling penalty shoot out Louie saved 3 penalties to cap a fine "man of the match" performance in goal and break our opponents' hearts. Well done boys!

A big thank you to Louie and Brook's mum for transporting so many of the boys.
Team: Callum, Reece, Jake, Jack, Ryan, Brook, Rohil, Louie,Kai.
Goals: Reece 2, Callum
Next game : next week at Talavera.
