Thursday 13th October 2016 saw some of our Year 7 and 8 girls taking part in a 7-a-side football tournament held at Prescot Leisure Centre. Several schools entered, all bringing intimidating numbers with several substitutes. Our girls bravely battled with just seven players who put their all into their matches.
A great partnership could be seen from two of our girls who play together in teams outside school, and their positivity drove the rest of the team on. In addition our goalkeeper performed brilliantly stopping several advances from the opposition in numerous matches and the entire team worked well as a whole.
A series of unlucky losses did little to demotivate our girls and they carried on and battled until the final whistle, demonstrating excellent sportsmanship even in defeat. Optimistically our extra curricular training sessions will improve our game significantly and next time we compete we will come away with the victory our girls deserve.
