Sports Report - Year 8 and 9 Football
The Year 8 and 9 Girls Football team bowed out of the Somerset Cup losing 4-0 to a talented Bucklers Mead team including 2 County players and 4 Yeovil Academy girls. The opposition started well with Chilton giving them too much space on the ball leading to two early goals. The girls battled back well with Ewalina and Summer H combining well in midfield and Heloise M and Jodie H strong at the back. With the girls working hard Morgan P and Lemi M went close with shots at goal. Bucklers Mead's power and pace was always a threat resulting in two further goals being conceded before half-time.
At 4-0 down the girls showed great heart and desire in the 2nd half. Jodie H went in goal and made several good saves whilst Lauren H, Ferne H and Hollie D put in tireless efforts in midfield to close down the opposition. Ewalina nearly scored with a right foot shot whilst Alesha H showed good pace on the right wing. Defensively the girls were so much better organised, communicating well and clearing their lines more effectively. The girls have something to build on for their league campaign knowing that they can compete against strong opposition.
Player of the match was shared by Heloise M and Summer H.
