Sheffield University: Road to Victory
The day commenced at the Goodwin 3G field. After a tired warm up Uni took to the field to face the first opponents of the day, Yorkshire Select. A quick start from the Tanger boys gave us a 1-0 lead after the first minute, as Dave Watson capitalized on a fluid fast break. Yorkshire then battled their way back into the game to tie at halftime. With the game plan to dominate possession for the Uni lads patience was key, this resulted in another two goals to round off the match 3-1 in Sheffield Uni’s favour. Next up, Steelers. Steelers looked keen and ready for the game but once again the Uni defense lead by Tim Blower was difficult to break down with Rich Parsons (LTP ’13), Josh Hurry, Tommy Kirkland and Ollie Barrett shutting them down to only 1 goal in the game. The Tanger offense also clicked as 4 goals catapulted past the Steelers goal tender with Uni winning the game 4-1. Champions!
