U13 Girls Football County Cup Quarter Final
On Friday 24th January the U13 girls football team played Bitterne Park School in the quarter final of the County Cup. Thornden took an early lead through a well worked team goal finished by Isobel. Bitterne Park fought back and scored two goals in quick succession. Thornden went into half time 2-1 down. Thornden re-focused at half time and started the second half with a renewed intensity. Kezia scored an equaliser to bring the game to 2-2. Thornden held off strong attacks from Bitterne Park, Jess being particularly strong in defence. With only 2 minutes left on the clock Bitterne Park conceded a free kick just outside of their box. Kezia stepped up and executed an incredible shot which curled around the keeper and into the top corner. It was a tense last couple of minutes but the team kept their cool and finished the game winning 3-2. We await to hear who we have in the semi final with excitement!
