4th Final v Brooke Priory: W 3-2
The U11A girls travelled to Oakham for a festival. We played five games before a final against an equivalently placed team.
Our first game was against Laxton and it was a very close game but we conceded with a minute to go.
Our second game against Oakham was a 1-0 win with Penelope scoring after two minutes with a shot from the edge of the D.
Our third game was a tough one against the eventual tournament winners Witham Hall, despite a battling performance and some super saves from Camilla we conceded six.
Our 4th game against Copthill was another closely fought contest with us conceding two goals.
Our final game of the pool game was against Maidwell Hall, Penelope scored after six minutes and Charlotte made it two after nine minutes for our second victory of the afternoon.
The team consisted of Captain Lulu, Camilla in goal, defenders of April and Coco and our forward line rotated between Tabitha, Penelope, Charlotte, Lulu and Arabella.
We came 4th in our group and so our final was against Brooke Priory. We were a goal down after a minute, but then Penelope equalised for us after 4 minutes. Two minutes later Brooke scored again. On ten minutes, Penelope equalised a second time before Charlotte, a minute later, put us in the lead 3-2. Some heroic saves by Camilla right at the end helped us see out the game victorious.
Well played girls.
