In late November, the Year 8 Girls football team took part in a round robin of matches against Year 9 teams from three other local schools. Despite the horrible weather conditions, the girls did brilliantly and won all three games without conceding a single goal. The St Mary’s team played some outstanding one-touch football and scored several stunning goals. Their attitude and effort was outstanding throughout the evening and they are now well placed to finish very highly in the League. Two players are worthy of special mention. Niamh Boothroyd, who was clinical in front of goal, scored in every game, netting 7 goals in total, including 2 hat-tricks. Hannah Morrison worked tirelessly in midfield, breaking up opposition attacks throughout and supplying the ball quickly to the forwards. Hannah also scored with a thunderbolt of a strike into the bottom corner from distance.
Congratulations also go to the rest of the team: Ioulia Anagnosti, Emily Mooney, Becca Johnson, Emma Urwin and Anna Brent. Girls Football Training continues every Monday lunchtime in the Sportshall.
