Year 5/6 Girls Football at Goodwin Academy Thursday 14th October 2021

The girls entered their first football tournament for 18 months at Goodwin Academy School.

In the competition Deal Parochial faced River, St. Richards, Temple Ewell, Goodnestone, Whitfield, Kingsdown and  Capel.

Each game was 6 mins long.  First up was Kingsdown, both sides fought hard but came away with a 0-0 draw. Next up was Whitfield and Capel with a goal from Isla and Ella which settled the match with 1-0 wins respectively.

St Richards followed, and a convincing win from Deal Parochial with goals from Amelia, Tabby and Isla sealed the win. The girls really did settle into their rhythm and style of play to record victories against River 1-0, again Isla the scorer, 1-0 against Goodnestone, this time a goal from Ellen and a 0-0 draw against Temple Ewell.

This ensured the girls maintained an unbeaten record in the competition without conceding a goal. The girls also showed great team spirit, fair play and respect throughout the day.
