Southwell City Inter Schools Under 9’s Girls Tournament - Report from Matt Green
On Saturday 23rd June 2018 Bleasby School were represented by the following girls at the 8th Southwell City Inter Schools Under 9’s Girls Tournament:
· Lauren Barnes
· Eloise Barnes
· Amelia Green
· Jessica Green
· Frankie Dix
· Tegan Duff
· Elizabeth Fletcher
· Saphia Kaye
On a hot and sunny morning the girls would play three group matches with the top two teams going on to play in the final.
First up our girls faced Lowes Wong Blues in what was a tense game with Bleasby running out eventual 1-0 winners with Amelia Green scoring the only goal of the match.
Next up were the Halam/John Hunt Schools team who took an early lead but the girls from Bleasby showed true grit and determination with Lauren Barnes equalising in the dying moments to end the game 1-1.
In their final group game Bleasby played Lowes Wong Maroons and quickly went 1-0 up with Lauren Barnes scoring. Although the game eventually finished 1-1 the Bleasby girls came top of the group and would face Lowes Wong Blues in the final.
The final started really well with Frankie Dix scoring to go 1-0 up. Despite coming under lots of pressure the Bleasby girls soaked it up well, including Lauren Barnes saving a penalty, to be crowned the Southwell City Interschools U9 Champions.
All of the U9 girls played fantastically well and were model ambassadors for the school.
Well done Bleasby!
