The Y5/6 girls football team finished as runners up in the County round of the ESFA football tournament at Carre's Grammar School Sleaford today.
The competition was run in 2 leagues of 4 teams, all of whom were champions of their district. Our first game was against St Botolphs from Sleaford. This proved to be a very tough game and we found ourselves under pressure for most of the first half and trailed 2 - 0 at the interval. We got into the game more in the second half but as we pushed for a goal we were caught on the break as St Botolph's scored a third.
Having lost our first game we knew we probably needed to win our remaining two games if we were to progress to the semi-finals. In our second game against Parish Church (Gainsborough) we got an early goal which boosted our confidence and we went on to win 6 - 0.
Our final group game was against Spalding. We took a 2 - 0 lead before they made it a nervous last few minutes by pulling a goal back. Fortunately we held on to win 2 - 1.
That meant we were runners up in our group and had to play the winners of the other league: The National School from Grantham who had won their league against teams from Market Rasen, Waddington (Lincoln) and Tower Road, Boston. This was a very tight game but in the end we ran out as deserved winners by a goal to nil and earned a place in the final against St Botolph's.
The final was a much closer game than our earlier group match. Tarne pulled off several saves to keep the local team out and at the other end a shot from Ruby went just over the bar. At the end of normal time the score was 0 - 0 so the match went into extra time. St Botolph's got the first goal of the final midway through the first period of extra time and were able to hang on to their lead until the final whistle.
Team; Tarne, Holly, Alex, Chloe, Ruby, Sarah, Amy, Jeniffer, Ava
