On a lovely sunny afternoon Somervale travelled to Hugh Sexey to kick start the Round 1 for the Nationals.
From kick- off both schools got stuck in and played some fantastic football. Izzy Cook displayed some great footwork and scored a brilliant solo goal to settle the nerves. Somervale hit back immediately and scored just before the half time whistle.
The score at half time was 1-1.
In the second half some changes were introduced and Hugh Sexey went back in the lead from a great finish by Grace White. Further goals from Izzy Cook (2), Grace Ashurst and Georgia Thurling secured the win. Somervale's star player hit back with two late goals. The game ended 6-3.
This was a great start by our girls. Next round we are set to play at home against Hansham Woods Academy.
The Squad consists of – Evie Puddy, Grace White, Izzy Cook, Abbie Powell, Grace Ashurst, Georgia Thurling, Charlotte Watson, Alice Roy, Kaitlin Pettitt, Lucy Baker, Anna Littlewood-Hillsdon, Libby Tucker, and Evie Jones.
