The U18 football team travelled to Brampton near Carlisle to play William Howard school in the County Cup quarter-final.
They started very well and dominated play in the first half, playing some tight one-touch football in the middle of the park.
Their good play paid off when Matthew Pearson managed to take the ball around the keeper and finish from a tight angle.
UVHS continued to dominate but couldn’t put the game to rest. In the last 5 minutes, William Howard equalised, forcing the game to go to extra-time and eventually penalties.
All 5 UVHS players scored their penalties and the keeper, Thomas James pulled off a great save to ensure victory.
They now play Trinity School at home in the Semi-Final.
