Girls' Football: Somerset Cup Finals
On 27th April, HSMS U12's and U14's girls' football teams represented the school in the Somerset Cup Finals at Street FC.
The U12s girls were up against a very strong Millfield outfit who were very sharp, and excellent all throughout the match.
Our girls kept battling all the way throughout the game and played some excellent football, they certainly made Millfield work hard for the trophy.
We lost 5-1 in the end, but despite the result the girls should be very proud of themselves, especially in the second half when we showed we were the stronger side.
The Under 14's girls were next, against Gordano school, playing on a very big wide pitch, which suited us as we liked to move the ball wide, using our fast wingers who were able to cause problems for the opposition throughout the game. This was a fantastic game of football to watch; credit to both teams who produced some brilliant football on the day.
Hugh Sexey's were 1-0 down at half time; after a brilliant half time talk with the coach, the girls came up with a plan to get out there and keep piling on the pressure . Eventually Hugh Sexey's scored the equaliser; this lifted the girls spirits, and then two more excellent goals were scored- both shots from outside the area!
After the final whistle was blown Hugh Sexey's were crowned the CHAMPIONS.
Every single one of the girls deserves this success, they have worked so hard to achieve this.
A great season of girls football by everyone, thank you for all the support throughout the year, it is really appreciated.
