Year 8 Local Cup Final – DACA 3 – 1 QEGS


Goal scorer’s – Jack Prince, Ralf Walsh, Ethan Makinde

DACA defeated QEGS on their home pitch in difficult conditions last Tuesday (4th May). DACA played the better football throughout the game making the most of the flat playing surface at Lammack Road. Jack Prince who was lively throughout scored direct from a corner kick after a mistake from the QEGS goalkeeper. QEGS made it 1-1 not long after with a volleyed finish direct from a corner. DACA continued to press and were rewarded with a penalty just before half time after the ball was handled on the line. Ralf Walsh expertly converted the corner to make it 2-1 going into half time. DACA continued to attack in the second half and could have made it 3-1 from the penalty spot had it not been for a fine save from the QEGS goalkeeper. Not long after the game was over after Ethan Makinde tapped in a fantastic team move to make DACA Champions.

The win topped off a fantastic year in which the year 8 team secured a league and cup double as well as finishing Runner’s Up in the Lancashire Cup Final.
