The Girls’ football Tournament took place on Friday 9th March, at NPL sports ground. 8 girls were all set - Philippa – goalkeeper, Amelia and Jennifer – defenders, Sophia, Edie, Elise, Vicky – midfielders, and Sophia Z – striker. Miss Day accompanied the squad. Everyone’s spirits were high!
A frustrating group stage disheartened the team. However, they finally found themselves in the knockout stages! The first game, after extra time, ended in 1 – 1; this meant penalties!
Edie was first. However, she unfortunately missed (as did the opposition). Then Sophia Latimer scored which kept it level 1 – 1. We eventually won.2 – 2 to the team’s delight. We were in the quarter finals!! That game was a 3 – 1 victory including goals from Sophia Latimer and Sophia Zanarotti.
Despite doing so well, the girls lost 1 – 0 in the semis, meaning they came third overall. Well Done Collis!
