Year 5/6 Girls

IPSSA U11 Girls Football Tournament

19 October 2017

 

We took a squad of 9 girls to the tournament at Whitton Sports Centre.

We played 5 games, 8 minutes one way, throughout the afternoon.  We won our first game, then continued with 2 draws and 2 losses.  This saw us finish mid table.

Our best game was the fourth game when we passed and created space well.  However, Jess was amazing in goal, continuing on from last year.  Freya was our only year 5 and was solid in defence and gained confidence throughout the tournament, making some forward runs into space, then retreating back to defence.  Some of the girls played in different positions which we will continue to explore in training.  The tournament enabled us to think about our focus for training and the girls thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

Thank you to the parents for the lifts and their great support!
