ISA National Girls' Football Festival

 

ISA girls football 

On Tuesday 10th October 15 girls from Year 7, 8, 9 and 10 went to LVS Ascot to play in the ISA national girls' football festival. It was an action-packed day full of football fun. The U13 team included: Maddie, Roxy, Libby, Scarlett, Charlotte, Abi, Annie  and Ella. The girls were drawn into Pool 2 and had three other teams to play against. The girls' first game was against LVS Ascot Royals. The girls started the game a little on the cautious side and the game ended 0-0. The second game was against King Alfred. The girls grew in confidence and scored an impressive 2 goals with some fabulous passes breaking down the opposition's defence. The game ended 2-0 to Gosfield.  Goals were scored by Abi and Libby. The final game of the Pool was against Hurst Lodge. The girls remained confident supporting and encouraging each other and the final score was 1-0 to Gosfield. Unfortunately the girls ended runners up in their Pool due to the number of goals scored so Gosfield went through to the Plate competition. Our game was against Akeley wood; the opposition were very strong and we lost the game 2-0. Overall Gosfield came 3rd in the Plate competition. Well done to all the Year 7 and 8 girls: you all played brilliantly demonstrating some great football skills.    

 

The U15 team consisted of Jess, Amelia, Lucy, Rhian, Esther, Bella and Claudia. The girls were drawn into Pool 1and faced four other schools. The first game was against LVS Ascot Royals and ended 0-0. The girls were a little wary to start with but as their confidence grew they applied more pressure to the opposition tracking the players down and passing the ball more strongly. The second game was against Meoncross. The final score was 1-0 to the opposition. However in the third game against Hurst Lodge Bella was crossed the ball and went on to score a goal to take the lead 1-0. The game ended 1-1. The final game was against King Alfred and was by far the toughest game. The opposition were physically strong applying pressure straight from the whistle. The girls played incredibly well remaining highly motivated and encouraging all other team members. The game ended 2-0 to King Alfred. The girls went through to the Trophy completion and the game ended 0-0 which meant it went to penalties. A very exciting time! The girls lost the game in the final stages conceding 1 goal. Everyone should be very proud of their achievements. Well done! 

 

All the competitors had a fabulous day raising the profile of girls' football. We are all looking forward to next year’s competition!
