Game of two Halves

Game of two Halves

Well done to our Year 3/4 girls football team that played a friendly against Redhill tonight. It took our girls a while to adapt to the big pitch and we found ourselves 3-0 within 10 minutes. The girls never gave up though and managed to keep the score to 3-0 coming in at half time. At half time we talked about how to adapt to a big pitch and we needed to squeeze in a bit more and not play so wide and the 2nd half was a totally different game. We had a few clear chances early on but their keeper seemed unbeatable at times. We finally scored with 5 minutes left and kept the pressure on but couldn’t get that next goal. The final score was 3-1 to Redhill. So proud of our girls for not giving up tonight, many teams would of given up after going 3-0 down so early but our girls showed great character to keep battling right to the end. Well done to the girls that played their first game of the year tonight, you did a great job. Special mention to our brick wall of a defence, defending isn’t always the most glamorous of roles but you two were absolutely superb again tonight. We have learnt more tonight than we have from our previous 3 wins. We will bounce back stronger #TeamGP
