Girls Year 7 schools 5-a-side football success
The Year 7 girls played in the second round of matches in the Sheffield Schools 5-a-side football competition in November.
After a tough first match and a 5-0 loss to a very strong All Saints team the girls took on King Ecgberts and earned a fabulous 2-2 draw with both goals scored by Freya Guest. This was the first ever competition points for this young Westbourne team.
In their final match the team again produced a battling performance against Astrea school, and goals from Lilly Hennig, Freya and then Hannah Pitchfork earned them a 3-3 draw. Westbourne were 3-2 up a minute to go but just couldn’t hold on for what would have been a much deserved victory!
Angel Dusauzay in goal was fantastic, making a string of saves in every match. Ria Charles was superb in defence, sprinting and closing down play continually, and Daisy Dennison, Hannah, Ria and Freya never stopped running, tackling and passing. Player of the day was Angel.
What a superb effort from all 6 girls, who were competing against state schools, many of who can draw from a year group of 300 girls! They all represented Westbourne school with distinction.
