News from PE …
Well done to the Year 8 team who played Haileybury in a district football match last week. It was an evenly contested match played in great spirit. Both teams showed 100% commitment in horrid wet and cold conditions on a muddy pitch. The girls came back from 0-1 behind at half time to lead 2-1 with about 10mins left. Haileybury equalised from a corner with the match ending in a 2-2 draw which was a fair result. Coaches player of the match was Jasmine Sims.
Fantastic 4-1 win for our U16s football team against STAGS yesterday. The girls now qualify for the Quarter Finals of the County Cup.
This was a hard fought win against a strong STAGS team. Both teams creating good chances and it was closely contested throughout. After going 2-0 up, STAGS fought back to 2-1 and then hit the inside of the post which was a heart in mouth moment! Our third goal, which was a wonder strike from 25 yards into the top corner by Rimini helped to calm the nerves. Rimini then completed her hat trick with a lovely solo goal to effectively end the tie at 4-1. Our other goal was scored by Amber L who took the penalty after she was fouled in the box following an amazing run.
I was so impressed with the entire team for showing such desire and commitment. It was a bitterly cold day but the girls certainly kept themselves warm with the amount of running they did. The girls did put their coats on for the team photo, but I can assure everyone they didn’t play with them on!
Player of the match voted by STAGS was Eva C. Coaches player of the match shared jointly between Rimini and Amber L who were both outstanding in central midfield. All the girls were amazing!
Well done to the Year 7’s this week who showed excellent effort and great teamwork in their netball match but unfortunately lost 7-0 to John Warner. Star Player was Betsy Hudson.
