Girls Football Results – Premier League Competition
The under 13 girls football team were back in action at Powerleague last week, in a 6 a side competition run by Stoke City. There were 4 leagues of competition, so only the top team would go through from each league into the semi- finals.
STB played Winsor Park first and Emma Hancock scored from the penalty spot to take the lead 1 – 0. STB dominated play, but could not add to their total. Final score 1 – 0.
In the second game, STB played Clayton and knew it would be a tough game. Clayton dominated the play early on, but goalkeeper Megan Jones made a couple of great saves. Clayton finally made their pressure count and scored twice in quick succession. Emma Hancock pulled one back for STB and the team had a couple of good chances, but ran out of time. Final score 1-2.
In the third game, STB dominated St John Fisher throughout and Emma Hancock again was the difference, with 2 well taken goals. Final score 2 – 0.
The fourth game was against Congleton High School. The team knew that they had to win the game and hope Clayton had suffered a defeat. Emma Hancock again was rampant with her right foot and scored 4 times. Final score 4 – 0.
Despite only losing one game, STB were knocked out of the competition and Clayton went on to win the final. Well done to the team for playing in a great sporting manner.
Team: Emma Hancock, Megan Jones, Nicole Turner, Brooke Phillips, Sophie Gilbert, Esmee Holt
