Animals Vs Shanked. Both teams are stalwarts of the league, and have progressed so much over the past few seasons, which has been a pleasure to witness.
An end to end game, with the teams drawing 2-2 at half time went down to the wire at full time with a 5-5 score line.
Drop off time.
A breakaway from Animals’ Joe Davidson and blistering paced cover by Shanked’s Harry Armitage, saw a pressured pass go to ground.
Unfortunately Shanked couldn’t capitalise at the other end, as Animals defence proved too strong.
With time ticking down ahead of the 3v3 stage, animals found a gap and went over the whitewash on the hooter, to take their first cup final win.
Thanks to all the teams and referees for making it such a great league. See you on the seven, soon!
