The Year 9s were in action against local rivals Cardinal Newman A, in the Town Cup on Tuesday 19th November.
After a disappointing County Cup exit to Dorothy Stringer, it was vital the team bounced back.
The defence had two of the regular back four out, however this didn’t affect the team's overall performance.
It was a very tight first half at 0-0.
Hove Park started the second half with a very high press, using their two strikers and wingers to close down their centre backs & full backs. The quick start paid off with Dylan G finishing off a great move.
Joe K then smashed in a free kick from 25 yards.
The fast start had knocked Cardinal Newman's confidence. The tireless Dylan G then went and helped himself to another, chipping the keeper. The team then switched formation, adding in some more defensive players, closing the game out with a moral boosting clean sheet.
