Our Year 5/6 girls' football team represented Strawberry Fields in our first sports event of the year this afternoon. It took a while to get going, with narrow 2-0 and 1-0 losses to St. Benedict's and East Garforth respectively. Both games could have gone either way and in both games the ball spent at least as much time threatening our opponents goal as it did ours!
After this, the team found their shooting boots and both our next two games, against Green Lane and Willow Green, ended in 3-1 victories. Lily-May scored five goals and Isabelle one. Maddie wowed the crowd with her saves in goal. Several other girls who had never played a competitive football match before also impressed. The girls played the games with a fantastic attitude and great team spirit.
Well done everyone!
