St Patrick's v St Mary's Thursday 10th March 2016

Match report by Emiliie


Yet another strong team put up against St Pat's Girls Football Team - but not strong enough to beat us!!!

St Mary's kicked off strong but our girls were stronger with Shannon (midfield) scoring the first goal.  An unlucky comeback, though, by St Mary's scoring their first goal of the match.  St Pat's, with a strong defensive line, managed to score another brilliant goal by Deanna (midfield).  It was back and forth but Shannon again managed to squeeze another goal.  St ,Mary's scored 2 more before the end of the game.  Also, a hugh thanks to Georgina for doing an ace job keeping the balls out of the net.

An unlucky match but an even score - keep it up girls.

Girls' Football match against Elland C of E Monday 19th October 2015

Match report written by captain Emillie:

Another excellent 7-0 win by St Pat's Girls Football Team.  Great defending, mainly be Deanna, Emillie, Freya, Abi and youngest player Ruby.  Also, great goalie work by Georgina - when the ball was in our half.  Strikers Millie, Deanna, Charlotte and Shannon were amazing taking shots all the time.  Two free kicks helped, taken by Charlotte.  Great start to the season, let's play the same after winter girls.

Girls' Football match against Carr Green Friday 16th October 2015

Match report - written by captain Emillie.

An amazing win by St Pat's Girls.  Well done to the new additions to the team, Ruby and Abi.  Also, well done to the goal scorers - Charlotte, Millie and Deanna.  Another exceptional player was goalie Georgina, who was actually more of a spectator than a player!!!  Let's hope it stays that way!  7-0, well done girls, let's keep it up.
