Team: Tianna, Davina, Daijah, Yeshema, Aliyah, Gabrielle, Rehannah, Sophie and Molly
On Wednesday, we played a 7-a-side tournament at the Wolves Training Ground. We played 6 games against teams with varying experience. Although we had only been training for five weeks, we played like a team who had been playing for a long time. We won 2-0 in both our victories, vs Spring Vale and Dunstall Hill, with the goals scored by Gabrielle, Sophie and Molly with two. We narrowly lost 1-0 to both Woodfield and eventual winners Trinity, drawing our games vs Hill Avenue and Bilston. Overall, we won two games, drew two and lost two, coming in fourth place.
Tianna, who was our goalkeeper, successfully saved many shots from the opponents in our six games, including a penalty, helped by Yeshema and Davina in defence. However, the player of the tournament was Sophie for her determination and excellent attitude throughout.
We are very much looking forward to the next tournament and we will keep practising to do even better next time.
