On a bright and sunny 11th February, Deal Parochial’s Girls’ Football Team played River in their final league match of the season. As always, our team played with great spirit, commitment and sportsmanship throughout.
We went 1-0 up early in the first half when Ruby calmly took down and controlled a high ball, before scoring. We kept pressing in the first half with Jasmine hitting the post with a long range effort, as well as Grace-Olivia playing a delightful cross into the penalty area to Ava, who narrowly shot wide.
In the second half, Grace and Abigail in defence had to keep their concentration as River became more attacking in their play. However, this allowed us to become dangerous on the counter attack, with Alisha and Ruby linking up really well for Ruby to score her second goal. Ruby proceeded to score 2 more goals before Jasmine scored twice.
Well done girls. It was a fantastic team performance to finish your season.
Many thanks to all the family and friends who came to support us.
