A match report by Mrs Flynn and Miss Cole:

In November, the girls' football team were able to take part in their first football tournament at the Littledown Centre. They were placed in a group against Park School, Corpus Christi and St Micahel's. Despite initial nerves, the girls won their first game against Park with an easy goal which settled them and gave them confidence to then go on to beat Corpus Christi 8-0 and secure a last-minute win against St Michael's as well. This made them the winners of their group and placed them in the top four schools out of 17 for the final group games. Being in the top 4 put us up against the strongest sides in the area: St Walburga's, St Katherine's and St Peter's. The girls really stepped up their game and held their own against St Katherine's, with excellent defensive playing securing a 0-0 draw.  They moved onto the next game with St Walburga's with the same great attitude and fighting spirit. Unfortunately, St Walburga's gained the upper hand in the second half and Muscliff conceded the first defeat of the day. The last game, against St Peter's, was very well matched and the girls battled back from being 1-0 down with a great goal just before the final whistle ensuring a 1-1 draw. As you can imagine, the crowd went wild and the girls finished their afternoon ecstatic. The girls finished 3rd overall out of 17 teams, the Mighty Muscliff strike again! Miss Cole and Mrs Flynn would like to say a massive well done to all the girls who took part, they should be incredibly proud of themselves. We would also like to say thank you to all the parents who helped with transport and cheered the girls on! Looking forward to the next one!

4th November 2021
