u10's bring home medals
The U10s stormed their way to the top of their group and straight to the final at the Packwood tournament today. With strong wins against Sedbergh, Moreton Hall and Terra Nova and a total of 10 goals and a clean sheet for Issy in goal. Beatrice scored 7 goals from the left and the other 3 came from Eli, Eleni and Rosie.
The final was tense and despite dominating possession all our attempts at goal were either wide or saved by the goalie. Lily repeatedly made key tackles and won the coaches’ prize of the tournament which was a new water bottle from Packwood. Eleni was also strong in defence and even more impressively was able on several occasions to dribble the ball up and around players. Eli and Scarlett worked hard in the middle of the pitch with great support from Beatrice, Elodie, Rosie and Eliyah. Despite all of the girls hard work Abberley conceded a short corner during extra-time. There was some confusion between the defenders and the umpire and Packwood were able to score. A very respectable second place and silver medals. Thank you to Lily and Mrs Pearson for their support on the sidelines.
