On Wednesday 21st February, our Year 5-6 girls’ football team travelled to Oxford High to compete in the ‘Girls on the ball football event’. The competition was a mix of primary and independent schools and Jaylen, Amber, Sophie, Alice, Katarina, Juliette, Tilly, Mimi, Celia and Lucille represented our school.
The tournament comprised one group of six teams and another group of five. Our girls performed superbly, finishing top of the group of five, recording 3 wins and one defeat from our four group games. This ensured we progressed to the quarter-finals, where we were victorious against Oxford High with Juliette scoring the all important goal. In the semi-finals, we came up against a physically strong SS Mary and John team, which saw us knocked out after a 1-0 defeat.
The girls should be proud of their efforts – finishing joint 3rd out of 11 teams was a brilliant effort!
