Hugh Sexey Under 12's girls have booked their place in the Somerset Schools Finals after beating local rivals Fairlands 5-0 at Fairlands school.
Due to illness Hugh Sexey's travelled without a few of their regulars, but this provided an opportunity for Libby to join the squad.
It was a very wet, muddy and boggy pitch that we played on. Hugh Sexey's started as the stronger team, controlling the game and playing short passing football. This led the first goal scored by Izzy, who skilfully placed the ball in the bottom corner.
Fairlands came back into the game, but Evie and Grace defended strongly and didn't let anyone past them; they were ably supported by the captain, Daisy, who played strongly all game, winning everything both on the ground and in the air.
The half time score was 1-0. Hugh Sexey made some changes and Jessie, who had been in goal for the first half, came out in the second half; she immediately scored two great goals. As the second half went on Hugh Sexey dominated the play, and added a further two goals scored by Izzy completing her Hat-trick. Great finishing skills.
In midfield Millie, Libby, and Jemima worked very hard all game running from box to box using their skills and pace to provide the ball to the strikers.
It was a very good afternoon of football. Well done to the girls for reaching the Cup Final; they will be playing either Selwood or Crispin at Street FC, on Wednesday, 27th April.
