MORDEN GIRLS FOOTBALL COMPETITION: WEDNESDAY 13 NOVEMBER
Having spent a lot of time preparing for other competitions, the girls only had 2 training sessions to prepare for this event. Despite this, Siana, Lakysha, Aaleiyah-Rose, Arae, Walaa, Lucy-May and Linda, the girls representing Liberty, were still hungry as ever to succeed!
There were 10 different schools in the competition split into 2 different groups. This meant that each school would play in 4 competitive matches before the top 4 schools would play to see who finished 4th, 3rd, 2nd and 1st.
In the first game Liberty wasted no time in getting off the mark, and through great teamwork and togetherness managed to win their first ever competitive game 2-0 with Walaa scoring both of the goals!
The second game was also very closely contested. With both teams doing lots of attacking and creating multiple chances, the girls were very unlucky and lost 2-0.
The third game was an amazing highlight of the day and something for the girls to be really proud of. Once again demonstrating tremendous teamwork, the girls managed to win the game 5-0, with Siana scoring 2 goals and Walaa scoring a hat-trick!
Our final group game was incredibly close, and having created numerous chances the girls couldn’t quite score the goal we wanted and ended up drawing the game 0-0.
We then progressed to the 3rd and 4th play-off game where, in a super tight encounter, the girls lost 2-0 finishing in overall 4th position.
We are extremely proud of the girls and the way that they represented our school. The maturity they showed as well as the sportsmanship towards all opposition was rewarded with the Respect award. We are super proud of these girls and look forward to the Morden football finals, which the top 4 schools qualified for.
