Southmead Success for the Year 5/6 Girls’ Football Teams!
During the ‘round robin’ stage of the competition, the Southmead ‘A’ team achieved an unbeaten performance beating Caen ‘A’ 3-2, Kingsacre 6-0, Marwood 3-0, Southmead ‘B’ 3-0 and drawing with Caen ‘B’ 1-1. Despite losing three matches, Southmead ‘B’ overcame their disappointment and displayed incredible resilience to fight back and beat Kingsacre 2-0 before drawing 1-1 with Caen ‘B’.
Through to the semi-finals in first place, Southmead ‘A’ then faced Marwood. This match proved to be tighter that most of their previous games but the girls displayed great determination and were delighted to achieve a place in the final by winning 1-0.
Their final opponents were Caen ‘A’.
Understandably, this proved to be the closest match of all, with possession passing back and forth between the two teams and both sides showing fantastic skills. Unfortunately, the team just missed out on winning the tournament with the final score of Caen ‘A’ 1 Southmead ‘A’ 0. The Southmead ‘B’ team achieved an admirable 5th place overall!
All the girls had a fantastic day and displayed our school values in abundance!
As a result of achieving 2nd place, the Southmead ‘A’ team have now qualified for the next round, against other schools from North Devon, which is due to take place next year.
Well done to all the girls who took part. I hope you’re very proud of yourselves!
