Year 9 Football Success vs. Shirley High

22nd January 2018

Congratulations to the Year 9 football team who beat Shirley High in a thrilling game on Wednesday afternoon. In a game that swung one way and the next Quest came through 4-3 after extra time to move into the 2nd round of the Croydon Cup.

Quest took the lead after only 15 seconds with a goal from Bola but were 2-1 down at half time, they soon equalised but almost immediately gave away another goal to be 3-2 down going into the final minute. In injury time at the end of the game Javony Whitter hit the post twice before a Shirley defender inexplicably handled the ball from the last kick of the game and gave away a penalty. Bola stepped up and scored to take it to extra time.

Quest dominated extra time with Javony Whitter scoring a lovely chip to seal a deserved win. Bola Noiki scored a hattrick and Ali Ghasemi made some outstanding saves including one from a penalty.

Well done!
