Sports Report - Year 8 and 9 Girls Football
The Year 8 and 9 girls football team travelled to BCA to play the 2nd tournament of the year against hosts BCA and Haygrove.
The first game against BCA saw the girls slow to get into the game and they were soon one goal down. The fought back well as H Mitchell and C Lazowski tackled well in defense whilst M Palfrey and F Hill linked well in attack. After a spell of end to end football BCA increased the lead as a BCA striker powered a shot past J Head. The girls never gave up and reduced the deficit when M Palfrey slammed home a penalty after she was tripped in the box. Despite the best efforts of K Williams and S Hellard in midfield stealing possession the girls couldn't get the equaliser and the game ended in a 2-1 defeat.
Next up for Chilton was the winners of the first tournament Haygrove. The girls were determined to build on their improved effort and struck early as E Traczyk found M Palfrey who calmly finished into the corner of the goal. S Hellard and E Traczyk were dominating midfield and they linked well before E Traczyk slammed in a shot from a tight angle. Haygrove came storming back however found the defense of H Mitchell, C Lazowski and L Masunda in no mood to concede. As a result Chilton ran out worthy 2-0 winners and can look forward to their finals day after Christmas.
Player of the evening went to H Mitchell for excellent defending and much improved positional play.
