Sports Report - Year 11 Girls Football Final
The year 11 Girls football team travelled to BCA this evening to play Haygrove in their Area final this evening and put in an emphatic performance. The game started in a positive fashion as M Austin and N Nkala dominated midfield releasing M Hellard and Z Mizon to cause Haygrove problems with their pace. At the back H Rossiter and J Brind ensured J Granter had a comfortable evening clearing their lines and organising all around them. Playing in her less accustomed midfield role E Traczyk proved effective using the quick feet and skills to beat many opponents. Despite the teams best efforts they were thwarted by the Haygrove goalkeeper who made excellent saves from M Hellard and Z Mizon.
The second half saw Chilton force Haygrove further back and they capitalised on a defensive mistake as M Hellard's pressure saw the ball fall nicely to Z Mizon who finished well from a tight angle. This seemed to relax the girls who started to play some nice passing football, led by the energetic captain M Austin the girls continued to press for goals. From a M Austin corner Z Mizon once again found space in the box to stab home a shot from close range to make it 2-0. The introduction of G Lowe and G Reynolds gave Chilton extra pace and energy in defense and enabled the girls to ease to victory without alarm.
In a fine all-round team performance special must go to H Rossiter, J Brind and N Nkala who tackled brilliantly and never gave any Haygrove players time on the ball. Player of the match went to M Austin for another outstanding effort in midfield working tirelessly throughout.
