Girls Football Tournament

On the 21st of May 2014, 9 year 6 girls entered a football tournament at AFC Fylde football club. 8 other schools attended this event. Mrs Howarth supported us and choose Mya as our captain and Amy as our vice-captain.
Our first game was against the Willows with Heidi, Abbey, Mya, Amy, Aleisha and Molly as our first line up. The result ended 2-1 to Hall Park with Mya scoring both goals and, unfortunately, Abbey scoring an own goal.
The next match being against Ribby with Wrea Green 2 our starting line up was Heidi, Ameilia, Mya, Ruby, Yaz and Molly. Unfortunately, the final score was 2-0 to Ribby with Wrea Green 2.
Weeton were our next opponents. Mrs Howarth had to choose a strong team otherwise Hall Park wouldn’t make the semi- finals. She choose Mya, Abbey, Amy, Ameilia, Yaz and Heidi. By Half-time it was 2-1 to Hall Park. We managed to get a penalty because one of our opponents picked up the ball by mistake. Mya then scored making it 3-1 to Hall Park. At the end of that match, the score was 5-2 to Hall Park.
When the organiser called in all the teams, we found out that Hall Park were through to the semi-finals.
As we all had butterflies in our stomachs, our tough opponents, Clifton, were very attacking. Before this match, Mrs. Howarth chose our best team including: Mya, Heidi, Abbey, Amy, Aleisha and Molly. Sadly, at the end of the semi-final it was 1-0 to Clifton. At the end of the tournament Hall Park came 3rd out of 8 teams. We would like to thank Mrs. Howarth for her great encouragement, Mr Billington and Mr kidd for training us. And finally all the parents who came to support us!
