Girls are spot on once again!

On Tuesday 8th November, the girls played the next round of the Hampshire Cup against Oakley in Basingstoke.
On a damp pitch and with only 7 players, the girls put on a fantastic performance filled with character and determination and moments of real quality. The hosts started well and were 2-0 up at half-time but we were not being outplayed and Joanna was a constant threat throughout. Mimi scored a great goal from all of 30 yards and Joanna bagged a well deserved brace to make the score at the end of normal time, 3-3!
Due to the light, both sides agreed to go straight to penalties and Billie did her bit in goal by scoring hers and making Oakley miss 2 of their penalties. Ellen and Mimi also both scored and it was left to Molly Smith to convert the winning penalty.
A special mentuion to the Yr6 girls who really took the Yr5's under their wing and all led from the front in their performances and well done to the Yr5's who didn't give up and gave their all once again!
Another superb result for the girls who have done themselves proud once again, making it a Newport double over Oakley and move intot he next round!

Billie, Ellen. Mimi, Aleisha, Molly R, Molly S, Joanna
