Year 7 and 8 Girl’s PEDSSA Football Cup Final
We hosted Broadstone in the final of the Year 7&8 PEDSSA Football Cup. On a sunny afternoon both teams took part in such a competitive match that was a superb advert for girls football. We started in confident mood and dominated the first half with solid defence and quick attacking play. However we did not convert our chances and I was worried that we would go in at half time 0-0. On the stroke of half time Hannah played an excellent through ball to Teagan and she calmly finished to give us the lead. At the start of the second half I felt we lost a little focus and unfortunately conceded two quick goals as a consequence. We soon got our focus back and equalised from what I thought was Sydney but video technology (kindly provided from Mr Keegan) showed that Chloe got the final touch. The match could have gone either way and Faye made some great saves to keep us in the match.  Broadstone eventually scored their third and we could not score an equaliser and lost 3-2. In reflection (as with the boys finals) it is extremely disappointing to lose in a final but this should not diminish the fantastic season we have had. The girls have worked thoroughly hard and their progress in my eyes has been sensational. The next step for the girls that do not play for a team is to join a club out of school and any girls (in this team or any girl in school in fact) should see the PE Department for any information. Be proud of your silver medals girls, it has been a fantastic season!

Year 8 Girls Rounders
A huge well done to our year 8 girls rounders team who played three league games in one evening on Thursday. Despite it being their first league games of the season, the girls showed experience and focus. Firstly they played a very organised Sturminster Newton, losing by 5 rounders to 3.5.  Next up they played Lytchett, convincingly beating them by 7.5 rounders to 3. A fantastic win! Finally they played Gillingham and despite putting in a tremendous amount of effort, narrowly lost by just half a rounder! Well done to all of the girls involved who really did do FMS proud.
