The girls Under 9s played their first tournament for Quarry Rovers on 14th June at the annual Summertown Stars 5-a-side event.
The team of Saachi, Nell, Faith, Keeley, Xana, Hana and Eve played brilliantly to draw, win and lose their three group games. We were then up against one of the Summertown Stars teams in the quarter finals. It was level at the end of ten minutes so the game went to penalties. After some great saves by Saatchi, Hana and Nell scored to set up a semi-final against another Summertown Stars team - the one we had drawn with earlier in the competition. Keeley scored her third goal of the day after some great work by the rest of the team, and the team won 1-0. The girls fought bravely in the final but went down 3-0 to a really skilful Thatcham Town team.
Runners-up in our first competition was a superb result and it was wonderful to see the girls supporting each other and grinning throughout!
