This was the first time many of the team had played football and for some it was their first time representing our school. There was great excitement to be playing against other schools and after a timid start, the girls began to get stuck in! They really enjoyed every game, despite the cold weather. Sofi was very happy to score the goal in our first match and Molly was delighted with her goal in the second match! We also had lots of support from parents and siblings. Ruby helped out by keeping score and looking after the bag of coats! Well done to everyone involved!

Won 2 - 1

 

After a tricky start in the first game, the boys came off really disappointed to only get a draw. They played well but didn’t have enough shots. After the match we talked about how we could improve and decided that we should shoot from anywhere otherwise we would never score any goals! The team certainly listened to the instructions - they scored 10 goals in 10 minutes in the second game!! This improved our goal difference which could have been important going into the last match against East Crompton. We knew that we needed to win or draw the last match to go through. Once again, the team played really well and created lots of chances. We won the game 2 - 1 and are now through to the finals night on 22nd January 2014. Well done to the football team!
