Many congratulations to our U9 girls who played exceptionally well at the U9 A Orchard Tournament last Friday, competing against some very strong competition. The team started the tournament
with a close 1-0 win against St James moving on to beat Eaton Square 2-0, Francis Holland 2-1, Ravenscourt Park 4-1 and Orchard House 1-0.
After winning their group stage, the team competed in the semi-final against Kew Green who proved the strongest opposition so far. After drawing 2-2, the match went into two nail-biting sessions of extra time. In the final seconds, the girls fought hard to poach Kew Green’s centre pass and a fantastic interception resulted in a victory goal!
After such a tough semi-final, the girls had to compose themselves as they faced The Roche School in the final. Our players worked incredibly hard and showed some promising team work, ending the game 1-0 and winning the tournament. It was a great afternoon and to be undefeated in the tournament was a fantastic achievement for the girls. CONGRATULATIONS GIRLS!
