Girls Football V Wellington

On Thursday afternoon, the girls football team competed in their first league fixture against Wellington. For some of the girls it was the first opportunity to play in a football match and the experience will benefit them in future matches. After warming up, the game started and we found ourselves going behind to an early goal.

The girls battled hard and created chances to score a goal themselves. Unfortunately, just before half time Wellington scored a second goal. After a quick team talk and much needed drink the girls managed to pull a goal back, thanks to Rhea's goal. 2-1. The girls battled hard for a second goal but they couldn't quite manage it. In the dying seconds of the game, Wellington scored a third goal. The final whistle followed soon after, signalling a 3-1 defeat.

After the game the girls were happy with their performance and are looking forward to the next fixture against Newlands.
