Group Stages

SAS v Altus

SAS started strongly going 1 goal ahead in the early stages. SAS controlled the tempo of the game and got the ball forward at every possible occasion. SAS never looked like losing but did concede 1 goal on the way to a 3-1 victory and 3 points on the board.

SAS v CBRE

After a long 2 hour break between games, SAS lined up against a strong CBRE team. SAS has a physical battle on their hands from the first whistle. SAS were awarded a penalty after Matt Beardall was taken down inside the CBRE penalty box. It was coolly finished and SAS rode out the rest of the pressure finishing the game 2-0 to come second in the group stages.

Knockout Stages

SAS v G&T

Having been drawn against G&T, SAS were looking forward to a knock out game. The tensions were high and the SAS were not playing their usual concise football that had seen them perform so well in the group stages. SAS fielding a strong team with 3 new players coming into the fold to offer fresh legs. The game was close and eventually finished in a draw resulting in penalties. The SAS penalties takers were cool, calm and collected. Beardall stepped up first, slotting easily, followed by Ruvan Sangra who after a slight step to send the keeper nowhere, played the ball into the corner. A strong hand from Ben Selwyn in goal resulted in SAS going through to the Semi Finals.

Semi Finals

SAS v CBRE

In a strange twist of fate, SAS once again faced CBRE in the semi finals having already beaten them 2-0 in the group stages. The pressure of the semi final made for a nervous start and SAS were not getting the ball forward with any fluidity. It took a lot of pressure but eventually SAS broke the deadlock and went 1 nil ahead. CBRE responded quickly to make it 1-1 following a penalty when two CBRE players went down from a strong tackle inside the SAS box. SAS pushed hard and fought to get the ball forward which resulted in a goal to take it to 2-1. With minutes to go, two CBRE players went through and collided with the SAS goalkeeper resulting in a contentious penalty at the last whistle. It finished 2-2 and penalties happened again. SAS did not have the same luck and the penalties resulted in a loss and an exit from the tournament.

CBRE went on to lose in the final to GVA on penalties.

It was a thoroughly good day with lots of support.

Bring on next year!
