Last night the U14 girls football team headed to Rugby to play their final against Polesworth School. The team started off strong as did the opposition and both teams worked hard for the ball. Olivia Constable, Emily Lovett, Ana Lovett and Lucy Parsons worked tirelessly in defence to support Poppy Lummis in goal. Ellie Cumberbatch, Georgia Eversden, Lana Wilson-Shrubb, Esha Sancee, Ellie Gregory and Alexandra Zamfir pressured constantly in midfield whilst Sarah Costa and Abbie Bourton applied further pressure to the Polesworth defence.
The Southam girls put in so much work and effort to support each other, keep positive and maintain focus for every single pass and tackle! At the end of the first half Polesworth managed to score a goal putting them 1-0 up. After a positive and encouraging team talk at half time the girls went back out ready for the next half!
The second half was full of excitement Polesworth had several shots on goal all save by Poppy Lummis! Sarah Costa and Abbie Bourton both had shots on goal, extremely close to going in! After an amazing second half, Southam still weren’t giving up and right up until the last second fought for the ball. Unfortunately, the team lost 1-0 but proved why they deserved to be in the final!
Well done to every student, they played brilliantly and did themselves, each other and all of the spectators proud!!
Looking forward to an exciting season of Football next year! Miss MacLachlan & Mr Ginger.
