The girls football team began the season brilliantly as they reached the final of the Autumn term Rushcliffe Schools seven-a-side competition.
We started the group with goals – winning the first game 3-0. The next two games were even better with the girls winning 4-0 in both of them. This left one game to play – against Carnarvon Primary who had also won their first three games. It was to be an all Bingham deciding game to see who progressed to the semi final! A wonderful and very competitive game of football finished with neither side managing to score. We finished on the same points as Carnarvon but because we had scored one more goal the semi final place belonged to RMJS
The girls played extremely well again in the semi final against West Bridgford Juniors but just coudn’t find the net. The game went into golden goal extra time and it looked like penalties as the ref said one minute to play. However – up popped Maddie with her 8th goal of the day and we had made the final!
The girls took a breather and got ready to face Edwalton primary. The game started and Edwalton surprised everyone with a quick attack and scored in the first ten seconds! Sadly, despite much pressure, we just couldn’t manage to get the all important goal and the game finished 1-0 to Edwalton. The girls were obviously disappointed to lose but soon realised what a fantastic morning it had been and how well they had done to reach the final. They were all smiles again when it came to the trophy ceremony!
Well done to all the team who were fantastic all morning. They can’t wait for the next game!
