Year 9 Football

Our Year 9 girls played their final football fixture of the season last Thursday. Our A team won 4-3 against St Gabriel’s in an extremely entertaining match with goals from Jess, Francesca and 2 from Lizzie – this meant we came 3rd overall in the West Berkshire League. Our B team also won 4-0 with an excellent performance against Kennet B, including a hat-trick from Mariella and another goal from Georgia. This meant our B team came 5th overall! A huge congratulations to all players involved, as the conditions were freezing!

U18 West Berkshire Football League

The girls were evenly matched against Kennet School in the final of the U18 West Berkshire Girls’ Football League, with great defending from both sides. Poppy made some fantastic saves and was always a safe pair of hands, giving the team confidence to push up the pitch.

It was 0-0 at half time with all to play for St Bart’s had fresh legs and made regular subs to keep the pace and pressure up. This paid off, with Erin scoring early in the second half, giving the team a boost. St Bart’s kept up the relentless shots on goal and Mya secured a second goal to seal the win. A great team performance and another trophy for the cabinet.
