What a half term of football we have had!! Well done to all the girls in the football team – Lilly, Ciara, Joy, Lily, Tinashe, Jasmine and Jess W – who have put their heart and soul into every match only conceding 3 goals in 5 matches whilst scoring 20 goals in the same 5 games. Thank you to Grace and Freya who joined us at the final as subs, you were crucial to our success too.
On Wednesday afternoon, we went to Parmiters school to take part in the finals. Out of 18 teams across the partnership we were 1 of 8 at the finals ! We won the first match by 3 goals and then drew 2 matches making us second in our draw. We then played and won the semi final by penalties! WE GOT THROUGH TO THE FINAL!!!!
In the final the girls played the best and quickest football that they could muster from the energy levels left after 5 games in one afternoon. They were amazing and worked sooo hard as a team, all the parents, Mrs Coe and Mr Cassen were so proud of their achievement. However,the score line ended at 0-0 and again went to penalties. Unfortunately, The Russell school won 2-1 which felt really harsh as we had put in so much effort for it to be over in seconds! We were a little deflated but became super proud of our achievement in being second out of eighteen.
WELL DONE TANNERS FOR BEING SECOND, THE RUNNERS UP!
You are amazing!!
