Preliminary Round v Rosslyn: We kicked off our cup campaign with a tight game against Rosslyn Park. Rosslyn took an early two goal advantage, before Melbury pulled one back just before half time. The second half saw a quick equaliser from Melbury, before Rosslyn retook the lead with only a few minutes left. A few outstanding saves from the Melbury goalkeeper and a last minute equaliser saw the match go to penalties. Both teams missed their first penalties, before both scoring their next. A Rosslyn miss meant a goal from Melbury would see us progress. A shot against the bar sent it to sudden death. A Rosslyn miss was followed by a Melbury goal - which meant Melbury won the shootout 2-1.
A huge well done to the boys who, in their first game of the season, came back from a number of different set backs and fought well against a good Rosslyn team. The game was played in a good spirit with both sets of players being a credit to their schools.
