Year 7 girls played together for the first time on Wednesday in an indoor 5-a-side football tournament held at Rookwood. Phoebe played two great games in goal during the round robin stages. The team held Test Valley to a 0-0 draw, however two early goals by Testbourne in the second match meant that the girls had to step up the attack. Rotating midfield players Lily-Maya, Freya and Ella worked hard up and down the court, with Honey and Bella putting their defence under pressure. We scored 2 quick goals back but couldn’t quite manage a third for the win.

This left us in 3rd/4th place play off against Rookwood. Strong defending by Charlotte and some great saves by Neve kept them at bay. Freya slotted in a fine shot to hand us the 1-0 win and 3rd place overall.
