Redscope and Meadow View primary schools round off 2012 with the Broadsword Trophy’s most entertaining game yet.The Rotherham United home game against Gillingham witnessed the sixth game of this season’s Broadsword Trophy.
The crowd of over 8,000 was treated to one of this season’s best games. The sides from Meadow View and Redscope Primary put on an excellent display of attacking football and played the game in a sporting manner.
Meadow View were the team who started quickly and put Redscope Primary under some early pressure. However, Redscope came back into the game and had a couple of great chances, and it took some fantastic goalkeeping to keep the score 0-0. Eventually Redscope broke the deadlock and went a goal up with a long-distance strike. They also looked to double their lead but the Meadow View Goalkeeper turned another shot from distance over the bar.
Meadow View, however, kept trying to play attacking football and looked to get on the score-sheet themselves, and after some desperate defending from Redscope, Meadow View managed to force an equaliser through a deflected strike.
Redscope came straight back at Meadow View and put them under extreme pressure, which resulted in a second goal for Redscope, and, despite a spirited effort from Meadow View, the score finished Redscope 2 Meadow View 1.
Dave Race, Broadsword’s Operations Director, had this to say: “This was the final Broadsword Trophy game of 2012 and it seems we saved the best till last. It was a great game that had action at both ends. I hope this sets the benchmark for 2013. Congratulations must go to Redscope Primary and I look forward to seeing them in the quarter finals later in the season.”
Participation Officer James Cole added: “It was another great game, both teams played attacking football and created chances, which was great to see. Congratulations must go to Redscope though, who just edged it today.”
