Girls A Team Football Match vs The Wroxham, Wednesday 14th November
The A team began their competitive league fixtures today with a tough home encounter against a very experienced team from The Wroxham. The first half began brightly, with midfield dynamos Melanie and Grace racing down the wings to create some dangerous attacking play. Despite bold defending from Emily and Kiera, however, we soon found ourselves 3-0 down thanks to the opposition's talented strike-force. Enya pulled a great goal back for us after Evie's bold run into the box led to a goal-mouth scramble, but this was sadly not enough as the visitors scored either side of the half-time interval to eventually run out 5-1 winners. As a tribute to our girls' excellent play, both managers decided that a fun penalty shootout would be an appropriate way to end the afternoon, and Miss Kropman is delighted to report that we won this 3-2! Bailey was outstanding in goal, saving three penalties is a row(!), whilst our penalty scorers - Evie, Enya and Grace - all used blistering pace and accuracy to fire into the back of the net. Well done, girls!
House Cross Country Competition
The House Cross Country Competition was a great success last week. All the children, Little Gems to Topaz, took part and showed that the training put in during their Mile a Day has really paid off. All the finishers gained house points for their teams and these were added up for the end of half term total.
Well done everyone!
Our first fixtures event of the year took place week at Stanborough School last week. The girls played 3 games and won all 3. The scores were 11-4, 8-0. 14-0.
The girls played really well as a team and worked hard to move, pass and find space. Their communication was excellent and that is reflected in the fantastic scores. Well done girls!
Year 5&6 Girls Football, Friday 5th October 2018
On Friday 5th October, Enya, Grace and Melanie from Year 5 and Bailey, Emily P, Evie, Kiera and Megan from Year 6, travelled to Monk's Walk School in Welwyn to take part in the Sports Partnership Football Festival. This was not an inter-school event and, rather than play together as a team, all eight of our girls were made team captains, responsible for leading a group of up to twelve girls from a variety of different schools. During the afternoon, we played both five and seven-a-side games and enjoyed ourselves immensely! Miss Kropman was very impressed with the leadership qualities demonstrated by all of our girls and was delighted to see the excellent football being played, which will set us up nicely for competitive league fixtures later this term! Well done to all of the girls, but a special mention should go to Enya and Kiera, who were awarded certificates from the Monk's Walk staff for showing brilliant ability within their matches.
