A team of Year 5 and 6 girls took part in a GFA 5 a side competition yesterday evening at Beau Sejour.
The girls did fantastically well, finishing a close second in their group, scoring a total of 13 goals in 4 matches! Hatricks from Marni de Freitas and Mali Smith as well as goals from Clara Hamilton, helped the team earn 4 – 0 then 5 -0 victories -the biggest wins in St Martin’s girls’ footballing history!
Our group place meant we faced a strong Norte Dame side in the semi final. Resolute defending from Ellie Mourant, Emilia Ozanne and Felicity Coupe as well as excellent saves from Martha Falla meant the game finished 1-1. The match was then decided by a ‘golden goal’. Unfortunately Norte Dame caught us on the break and got the goal. Leaving us in 3rd place overall.
Although they are disappointed not to win, the girls should be incredibly proud of their performance and determination this evening. We are now looking forward to the 7 aside tournament in a months time.
