TTC - 4    Marshalls Park School - 3 

In the quarter final of the Essex Cup, our squad travelled to Marshalls Park School in Havering. We were very excited to play and were extremely proud of our previous
6-0 victory against Chingford. 

After a two hour journey we were eager and determined to play our best. Before the match, we face-timed Miss Harris, who has broken her thumb. She gave us an inspirational talk to get us pumped and ready. When we arrived we completed our warm up and went over our team tactics and formations.  

The game began and we were off to a great start, leading 1-0 in the first five minutes. We soon reached our second goal making Marshalls Park up their game to equal us 2-2. This score was held until we were under threat from a penalty but luckily they missed their shot. 

Soon after half time, we scored our third goal leading 3-2. However, Marshalls Park soon caught up, leading to their third goal. The final whistle blew (toot-toot) which meant it went into extra time (fourteen minutes). We were hungry to get to the semi's and kept the pressure on the opposition. We had fantastic passing which lead to our amazing winning goal. The final whistle blew and we celebrated proudly as we have now reached the 6th round of the Essex Cup.
