Leeds Schools U19 Cup Semi Final Winners

Leeds West Academy +vultures: 4 - Ralph Thoresby: 1 

Earlier this month, we saw a fantastic result for LWA vultures against last year’s cup champions Ralph Thoresby.  LWA were quick out of the blocks and went 2-0 up in the first 10 minutes with goals from Martin and Daniel.  LWA then continued to dominate in the first half playing some great football from the back and creating numerous goal scoring opportunities.  Just before the break, Essa took one of these opportunities, making the score 3-0 with an excellent left footed strike from just inside the box.

In the second half, Ralph Thoresby pushed more players up front and as a result LWA were under pressure for the first 25 minutes and despite Fabbio pulling off some excellent saves and Kadafi's solid defending the home team got a goal back, to make the score 3-1.  The next goal was now extremely important and it was Martin again, that scored.  He broke away on the counter attack and scored the goal to take the LWA vultures into the final and to knock out last year’s winners. 

 The final will be played on the 18th April 2018  at South Leeds Stadium

Coach Mr Haley added: “Well done the vultures, hard work pays off!!!”
