Weekly Sports Report - December #2

Posted on 15/12/2016

Year 7 and 8 Girls Football
In the final sports fixture of 2016 our Year 7&8 girls played Glenmoor in The County Cup. We were up against tough opposition and great defending from Kharis, Kim and Isabelle meant that we did not concede early. In a quick break away Chloe ran the length of the pitch to pass to Tegan who finished with a super strike from the edge of the box. Unfortunately we conceded an equaliser and Faye produced some brave saves to keep us level. Just before half time Molly produced a strong run and scored an excellent goal to ensure we were 2-1 up at half time. In the second half we were more attacking and Hannah scored 2 fantastic goals where she used her strength and determination to burst through Glenmoor’s defence and calmly finish. We eventually won 4-1 and are through to the next round of the cup.

Year 5 and 6 Girls Football
The Ferndown Team consisting of Lily and Aimee from Year 5 and Katie, Maddy, Nathi, Charlotte, Ellie and Megan from year 6 played extremely well at the county finals, winning 2 and losing 2 games, indeed the girls only narrowly missed out on a semi final spot to a last minute goal in their final match.

It was a great team performance with everyone contributing, including some amazing saves from our keeper, solid defence and plenty of goals, Aimee and Lily scoring 2 each and Megan and Nathi adding 1 a piece, (Nathi’s from inside our half!).

I was particularly pleased with the girls positive attitude, working together and giving 100% until the final whistle, especially playing against some very high quality opposition.

It has been a busy term with a vast amount of fixtures and I would like to thank all pupils for their efforts and their families for allowing them to participate. From the PE Department we all wish you all a peaceful holiday and look forward to the sporting opportunities continuing in the new year.
