Year 5/6 tournament

Cornwall College was host to this years year 5/6 Truro schools football tournament. It was an unprecedented turnout with 24 teams in attendance, that's over 200 children! WOW
The teams were split into 4 groups and Shortlanesend played in groups 1 and 3.
Shortlanesend, team 1, did amazingly well-made up of several new comers to the team but they managed an incredible 2 wins, 1 draw and 2 defeats to finish third in their group. A brilliant effort boys, well done!
 
Team 2 did even better and only lost 1 game in the whole of the group stages and ran out group winners. They then played Tregolls in the quarter final- a last minute goal by Shortlanesend was the difference between the two teams and it finished 1-0.
The semi final was against Mt Hawke, a team we had defeated in the group stages. It was an absorbing game that ebbed one way and then the other but in the end Mt Hawke were victorious with a 3-1 victory. Well done Mt Hawke.
 
Both the Shortlanesend teams were fantastic, both in their incredibly positive attitude but also their exemplary sportsmanship-a credit to the school and themselves.
It was a very competitive tournament and for one team to finish third in one group and the other to make it to the final four teams was a brilliant achievement. Very well done to you all.
