Year 10 girls smash Lancashire Cup first round
2 February 2024
REPORT BY MISS BEESLEY, PE TEACHER
Priory's Year 10 girls football team began their Lancashire Cup campaign on Thursday. We travelled over to Blackburn where the first-round match was held by St Bede's.
With a slightly delayed start due to a fire alarm, this didn't deter the girls who were raring to go.
And we didn't take long to get the ball rolling - with Molly scoring our first goal in the first 5 minutes.
A strong Priory defence from Eloise, Olivia and Mia, meant Bede's struggled to get through. This opened the way for more goals from our girls with a fantastic corner goal from Caitlyn, closely followed by another from Mia to make it 3-0 at half time.
A quick team talk, energy boost and the girls were back on it for the second half - Ruby making some fab saves, until Bede's scored, making it 3-1.
This gave Priory more determination to carry on. With Molly again scoring another two goals to make her hat trick!
Alessia not letting a knock to the nose get her down, came back on to score our final goal, smashing it in the back to the net. With a last-minute attempt from Bede's, the overall result was a win for Priory of 7-3!
Miss Beesley said, "The girls showed great determination and resilience during the game and did Priory proud. We will now move onto the second round and await our new competitors."
