Tuesday 28th March, Year 7 Girls
Hugh Sexeys v Wells Blue
Squad: Millie Thomas, Evie Jones, Grace Adams, Evie Clements, Tilly Boley, Harriet Griffiths, Emilie Peake, Rhiannon Kelley, Izzy Cook, Jessie Woodcock & Millie Pargeter.
This friendly was a great chance to try out new players for the year 7 team. Rhiannon, Tilley & Millie were all competing in their first ever football match and year 6’s Jessie & Millie joined the team. The game started and Wells Blue instantly put Sexeys under a lot of pressure but some really strong defending from Grace and great goalkeeping from Millie kept them out. Sexeys eventually started to find their rhythm and started passing the ball about. Emily & Tilley were starting numerous attacks but Izzy & Rhiannon were being frustrated by the Wells Blue goalkeeper. At half time it was 0-0. Jessie & Millie came on for the second half and had an instant impact. They combined well throughout causing Wells Blue lots of problems and within 5 minutes of the second half Sexeys were 3-0 up, two goals for Izzy and one for Jessie. As the half went on the girls became more and more confident and were dominating the game. The defence were solid and pushing up, which lead to a great goal from Grace Adams to make it 4-0. Wells Blue then tightened up and looked dangerous on the break but when Jessie cut in from the left and found the top corner with a great strike it sealed the game. 5-0. Izzy cook who was brilliant throughout was rewarded with her hat trick goal. Then the game was finished off in style with a great passing move started by the defence which ended with Tilley squaring the ball for Rhiannon to score in her first ever match. The game ended 7-0 and a really impressive performance from everyone.
