They played very well managing to qualify for the next round. The girls played Mount Pleasant first and played very well, with Ceri creating chances for Livvy, they were the better side but were just unable to get that all important goal and it finished 0-0. Next up HJS played Greenfields, who were a strong team, the girls played very well and were unlucky to concede the vital goal in the last minute of the game to lose 1-0. With no break the girls then played Oxon HJS dominated the game but were again unable to score a goal and the game ended 0-0. In the final game against Longden HJS knew they needed to win to get through to the next round. The girls started the game very well and created lots of chances. Ceri went on a great run and hit the underside of the bar only for the referee to have judged the ball had gone out. Livvy then had a couple of chances from Freya’s long throws before Ceri went on another amazing run this time finishing from a tight angle to score her first HJS goal! HJS continued to dominate the game with Holly, in goal, only having one save to make. It wasn’t long before HJS scored their second goal of the game when Freya smashed the ball in from outside the box to make it a final score of 2-0. The girls had made it through to the next round!

Well done girls!!

The Year 4 girls had their first ever tournament on Wednesday 22nd November at the Sports Village. The girls were grouped with Greenfields, Grange Park and Redhill. They played very well managing to qualify for the next round to be played on 7th February. The girls played Grange Park first and played very well in an even game. But it was Grange Park who scored the vital goal in the last minute of the game to win 1-0. After a break the girls played Redhill, HJS dominated the game and were rewarded with the first goal midway through the second half through Megan, they then doubled their lead when Livvy ran through and scored the second. Next up was Greenfields, again HJS were dominating possession but it was Greenfields who scored the first goal. At 1-0 down the girls fought back well with Livvy running from inside her own half to equalise. It was quickly 2-1 when again Livvy drove through the Greenfields defence to score. HJS were then awarded a penalty so Livvy stepped up to score her hat-trick and make it 3-1 to HJS. It was a fantastic achievement for the girls and we wish them luck for the next round.

Well done girls!
