Sports Report - Futsal County Finals
Today the u14 girls travelled to Milfield for the Futsal County Finals.
In the first game we played Kingsmead and in a tight first half where chances were few and far between. Lucy Williams displayed some fantastic footwork throughout ably supported by Ewalina playing two years above herself. Lucy poked home the first goal to equalise and just before half time beat one player and side footed home past the keeper.
In the second half Kingsmead battled hard but Grace and Ewalina stood firm and allowed Lucy and Maddie space to roam. The game was won when Lucy picked the ball up on the half way line, dragged the ball back to beat one player and as two closed her down chipped the ball over their legs and powered through them before smashing the ball into the corner of the net. An exceptional goal in a player of the match performance.
In the second game which became the final. Holyrood played some good football and had a strong team and the first half was an even affair with Chilton taking the lead via an own goal and Holyrood equalising through an unfortunate error shall we say! Just before half time Holyrood's exceptional striker outpaced the defence and calmly slotted last Millie to make it 2-1.
In the second half the girls battled hard but it was clear that their strike force was on some serious form and they capatalised on a tiring Chilton side seeking goals to eventually win 7-1. A great shame but they were the better side.
Runners up in the county is nothing embarrassing though, the girls had a great time and were chuffed with their medals!
