Year 7 Girls Football National Cup Round 2Posted on: 11/11/2022
GREY COURT SCHOOL 6 V 7 BLENHEIM HIGH SCHOOL
PLAYER OF THE MATCH - ABI
In a week full of fixtures, the Girls' under 12 Football team faced Grey Court School in the second round of the National Cup. Blenheim were caught off guard after a snappy start from the opposition but quickly recovered after a brilliant goal from Abi, closely followed by a top corner goal from Olivia. Grey Court were not to be dissuaded and they managed to claw back 2 goals to even the playing field at half time.
Both team talks must have been particularly inspirational because the goals kept coming from both sides in true pin ball fashion. The final whistle went with the score level at 6 goals each; not enough for either team to progress to the next round so extra time beckoned. Abi came to the rescue for Blenheim once again and scored the winner for the team. She also received player of the match; well deserved after four goals. Diana also put in a stellar performance as the centre defence and thwarted many of Grey Court's attacking plays.
The U12s will now progress to the third round of the National Cup. Congratulations!
