Year 9 Girls Football
The Year 9s took part in their finals evening knowing that all was to play for as previous games against Haygrove and BCA had been close affairs.
Haygrove and BCA played first and drew 1-1.
Chilton took on BCA first and were soon dominating as C Lazowski and J Forsey looked solid in defence. F Jones and A Hewart worked hard in midfield allowing P Taylor and F Hill to link up well in attack. BCA were powerful and fast and Chilton did well to keep them at bay in the first half. The 2nd half changed dramatically when P Taylor powered home a right footed shot. F Hill and J Forsey went close to adding another however BCA scored a last minute equaliser to make the final score 1-1.
With Chilton and Haygrove needing a win to take the trophy both sides put in a strong effort. The Haygrove keeper showed good positioning to stop shots from F Hill and P Taylor. With reinforcements H Daly and B Hambly giving the girls much needed energy the girls tackled and passed well under pressure. J Forsey in goal made two fine saves but could not stop Haygrove scoring as they reacted first to a deflection in the box. Despite their best efforts Chilton could not find the equaliser as Haygrove ran out 1-0 winners.
Once again the girls can be extremely proud of their efforts this year. They can look forward to future successes.
