Football Stars!

On a very cold and wet evening the girls took part in the second round of the English Schools FA football competition. The girls were amazing, never complaining once about the arctic conditions that they played in. They began the competition with a tough game against Mount Pleasant from the East Riding. Though we scored first, we conceded two, losing narrowly. The girls soon picked themselves up, beating Gillshill from Hull, 1-0, with what was almost the last kick of the game. The final group game saw them defeat Middlethorpe, ensuring that we finished top of our group.

In a very tough semi-final, the girls played valiantly, but lost to a very good side. Still not giving up, the girls went on to win the third and fourth play off, finally finishing third out of eleven teams on the day.

It was a great team performance from Lexie, Libby, Grace, Emily, Phoebe, Megan, Olivia, Ruby and Alisha. Congratulations!
