Girls are penalty queens!

Last week the footballers from Newport took on their Year 5 and 6 counterparts from Hatch Warren in Basingstoke in the Hampshire Cup. In an evenly contested match the girls eventually won 3-2 in a sudden death penalty shoot out after a 1-1 draw. Newport's goal was scored by Joanna Seaman after a good pass from Molly Smith. The girls worked really hard, Billie produced superb saves and saved the vital spot kick, Ellen and Amelia were solid in defence and Meila shone in midfield with a great work rate and moments of real quality when in possession and Joanna was a constant threat up front.
All of the squad played their part in a tough match and were a credit to the school and themselves.
Squad: Billie Turner, Amelia Higgs, Ellen Tooley, Meila D'Santos, Molly Ralls, Molly Smith, Aleisha Clegg, Joanna Seaman

The girls will return to Basingstoke to play Oakley in the next few weeks, hopefully in a less nerve-racking contest!
