Due to a tie in their pool they played an additional match against Martongate which they won 1-0 placing them in 3rd place to compete in the next pool for 7th, 8th 9th place.
They then went onto play:
Burlington v Bay 0-0

Taking them to a penalty shootout to decide their final position in the tournament. Unfortunately, Burlington missed out on the penalties which placed them in 9th place overall.
Burlington 2 were placed in pool 2. The results were:
Burlington v Hilderthorpe 0-0

This placed them the top of their pool so they then had to compete in the next pool for 1st, 2nd or 3rd place. After playing the matches in the next round this also led to a nail biting penalty shootout where overall the team came 3rd place.
A massive well done to all the boys for taking part.
