Aldercar High clinch Y11 Football title on penalties after thrilling game!

After a close fought game against Belper School it was Aldercar High who came out on top in the Amber Valley Y11 Football final
It was a frenetic start to the game as Belper caught Aldercar totally off guard by attacking up the right wing and scoring inside the opening 60 seconds after a superb cut back and finish
This would have shaken many teams but Aldercar used it as extra motivation and got a footing in the game very quickly beggining to dominate the midfield and ask questions of Belper at the back.
Belper however weren't always on the back foot and looked threatening on the break, arguably creating the better chances as the half wore on
The second half saw the initiative shift even further in Aldercar's favour as they began to look more incisive in attack and dominated the second balls allover the pitch
This effort finally bore fruit with around 15mins to go as a composed back post finish saw Aldercar level the game up at 1-1
Aldercar then created an even better chance for the same player seconds later but he couldnt convert. Half chances were then exchanged by both sides as the game wore on with neither side willing to risk losing the game 
Penalties were then needed to separate the teams with both goalkeepers striking huge figures in the goal
The first 3 penalties were taken expertly to take the scores to 2-1 in favour of Aldercar - only for Belper's second penalty to be superbly saved 
Aldercar continued to convert perfectly to put pressure on Belper's 4th taker to extend the game. However once again Aldercar's goalkeeper was the hero, saving a 2nd penalty to win the game for the school from Langley Mill
Congratulations to both teams on a fantastic final and for making it all the way through to the final
