During the beginning of the match Sandwell College had more possession and a few good opportunities however HoW Academy’s determination and tenacity shone through as they crafted a beautifully worked opening goal, setting the tone for the remainder of the match. Despite some spirited attempts from Sandwell College, HoW Academy’s relentless pressure paid dividends as they struck three more times before half time – effectively putting the game beyond doubt. 

 In the second half of the match, HoW Academy continued to show energy and determination and added four more goals to the tally, allowing them to cruise to victory in a manner that surpassed all expectations.  

With this triumph, HoW Academy has now been crowned league champions. This is a remarkable achievement made even more impressive by the fact there are still two games remaining in the season.
