Peace Studies FC Win Tolstoy Cup

A fiercely contested Tolstoy Cup saw Peace Studies host their rivals War Studies (from King's College London) at Horsfall Stadium. The large home crowd watched a spirited first half, as both teams threw everything at each other.

Tolstoy football 2014 1 Peace scored the crucial first goal through Zimmer, who neatly rounded the keeper one-on-one to slot home, resulting in scenes of jubilation. The second half saw Peace stay strong and robust in defence, with War extending forward in search of an equaliser.

For this they were roundly punished by Peace, with Saunders blitzing down the right ring to put in a ball that was converted by Cassidy. Peace quickly added a third, with Cassidy scoring again from a goalmouth scramble.

This ended the tie, the scoreline perhaps not reflecting a very even game, which was played in the right spirit by both sides. We would like to thank War for their sportsmanship, friendliness and competition and are eagerly looking forward to them hosting us next year.
