Semi-Final on the horizon for Y8 and 6-a-side success
The Girls travelled to Stretford High for a 6-a-side friendly tournament.
A combination of 7,8 and 9’s formed 2 teams and played in 2 well fought games. The games were played in three thirds of 12 minutes each to allow for girls who were fasting.
In the Year 7/8 team, Tomosin Tomoloju played in a key attacking role and provided a positive outlet for SGS. Diana, Bea and Niamh shared the goalkeeping duties and when they were outfield contributed solid performances. Hannah and Emma were the constant attacking threats and scored the goals in an 8-2 victory.
On the Year 8/9 pitch Ruby Myin provided the early goals against good opposition and created chances for teammates. Princess Cole made a number of fine saves in the first period of the match which saw them leading 2-0. Taia Myin made a series of further excellent saves in the last 2 thirds of the game and Princess scored a hat trick in her new attacking position.
Luna was a constant threat and added to the score sheet and Abi and Soha were excellent in their defending duties. Final score was 8-4 to SGS.
Another enjoyable trip to Stretford High and an idea to create a “Stretford Cup” across a range of sports between the two schools has been formed, providing a good community sporting link for the students in the local community.
