Louth schoolboys do it again in cup
MONKS' Dyke Tennyson College's Year 8 football team have made it through to the last 32 of the English Schools Football Cup with a hard-fought win over South Hunsley.
In freezing conditions, it took a while for the Louth team to settle and they soon found themselves 1-0 down.
Joe White was stretchered off injured and the score remained the same at half-time meaning it was a dejected Monks' Dyke team that went into the dressing room at the break.

And, after only a few minutes of the restart, Riley Hall scored a stunning goal to bring his side level.
Tom James made two fantastic saves to keep the Louth team in the competition and with ten minutes of the game to go, Jay Turner popped up at the other end to score what would prove to be the winner as Monks Dyke held on to see off a resilient South Hunsley outfit.
After the game, coach and head of PE at the school Steve Wright, said: "This was a massive achievement for the team.
"It was a fantastic game, played in the right spirit and all credit must go to both sides."
Monks Dyke now face a home tie with Malet Lambert of Kingston Upon Hull in the next round of the competition in the New Year.
Monks Dyke are through to battle it out with the last 32 teams in the country – a huge achievement, considering the tournament initially attracted over 700 entrants.
