2020-01-29

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!
