Year 7 Girls Football - English Schools Cup Round 5

Year 7 Football
U12 Boys - County Cup Final
U12 Girls - English Schools Cup Round 5

It was a week of sterling effort but the wrong result for our football teams with our Year 7 Boys team suffering their first defeat all season in the County Cup Final (full report to follow) and our Year 7 Girls team travelling all the way to Newton Abbott to play Coombeshead Academy in torrential rain.

Kayleigh Wells scored an early goal for  Lander  in a rare moment of sunshine but Coombeshead Academy - who had thrashed a previous opponent 19 -0 -were never going to be a walk over and sure enough they managed to score 3 before half time.
After a team talk our girls returned to the pitch with new vigour and Alice Davey managed to completely illuminate the threat of the opposition’s number 9, leading to us dominating in possession and shots on goal. Everyone was soaked to the skin and the match was proving to be somewhat of an endurance test with Lander proving the stronger. However, it wasn’t our day and the match finished Lander 1, Coombeshead Academy 3. Well done to all the girls who represented the school with such spirit. The future looks bright for girl’s football :)

The Richard Lander team were:
Tavie Carey, Jade Beech, Amber Powell, Kerris Parsons, Jess Oddy, Leah Carmichael, Alice Davey, Kayleigh Wells, Amelia Ireland, Ellie Young, Alana Bauer Tremayne
