The much anticipated match between Halifax Friendly and St Augustine’s to kick off Refugee Week 2022 ended with a victory over penalty shoot for St. Augustine’s.
There was a good turnout of attendees and there even was a drone filming the match! Emotions ran high both for the players and the support. We saw intense action, passionate play and impressive commitment to the match from both sides!
Though the day was hot, some clouds made it cooler and a breeze helped a little but the game was sizzling!
Halifax Friendly started strong leading the first half with 3-1 but St. Augustine’s stepped up their game in the second half term.
The game finished 3-3 after 90mins and St Augustine’s won the penalty shoot out 4-3 😊
Congratulations to both teams who played their heart out.
We caught up with our very own Dan Marham who played for Halifax Friendly for a brief commentary.
Dan said “It turned out to be a really good event. We lost at the penalty shoot out in the end but it doesn’t matter for such a good cause.”
And we can’t help but agree! Congratulations to St Augustine’s team for their victory and to Halifax Friendly for being such great challengers.
Thank you to both teams for reminding us all that we are one and the same.
