On Tuesday 1st March, we participated in the Year 6 Girls Football Competition at St Bedes High School. Prior to the tournament, the girls trained and learnt to play as a team and had all the skills equipped to do very well in the event.
The team consisted of 8 girls, playing 6 aside in a league format structure. 20 schools were divided into four leagues, 5 in each. In our group we had, Audley Junior’s, Longshaw Junior’s, St Peters Feniscowles and Wensley Fold. To be able to qualify to the knockout stages, the team needed to finish top of the group.
First game, against Audley Juniors, the girls played brilliantly, scoring 6 goals without reply, great result!! Our second game was a tough one against St Peters Feniscowles, which ended in a 0-0 score line. Third game against Wensley Fold was another dominant performance for our girls, winning 2-0. Our last game was against Longshaw, knowing a win would make us qualify out of the group. The girls played really well but the ball just wouldn’t go in the goal. The game finished 0-0 and we came second in the league with St Peters Feniscowles finishing top by one point..
Fantastic effort from the girls who were unbeaten in the competition. Excellent attitude. WELL DONE!!
