Girls' Indoor Tournament at Notre Dame

On Friday 5 March the girls' football team took part in an indoor 5-a-side tournament at Notre Dame. There were 8 schools present, divided into 2 groups of 4. In our first game we played some excellent football on a slippery surface and 2 well taken goals by Ellen Tiernan gave us a 2-0 victory over St James. Our second game proved much tougher against a physical and talented Cleves side and unfortunately we were beaten 3-0.

In the final group tame, the girls displayed an incredibly positive response and a great attitude against a very good team from Surbiton High. A goal scored by Georgia McCourts gave us a well earned 1-0 win and final total of 6 points. Although we finished as joint top point scorers in the group, we unfortunately lost a place in the final on goal difference.

Well done to all the girls and a special thank you to Mrs Green for the chauffeuring and to Miss Blair for looking after the team!
