Danone Cup U11 Girls
On a sunny afternoon at Queensgate our U11 girls team played in the IW finals of the national Danone Cup competition. The top six teams from the group stages came together to decide who would be Island champions.We were drawn in a group with two strong teams, Bay and Lanesend.
Greenmount 0-1 Bay
We started slowly and we’re a little off the pace in the first half but came back into the match to create some chances. However it was Bay who took the lead and held on for the win.
Bay 1-1 Lanesend
This draw left us with a chance to progress if we could beat Lanesend.
Greenmount 0-1 Lanesend
An amazing performance by our team. We defended well and kept Lanesend out and could have taken the lead with a shot from Darcey that fizzed just past the post. Both teams had chances but it was Lanesend who stole the lead. Following a fantastic save by Florence the ball dropped kindly for a Lanesend player to fire home.
A great introduction to competition football for many of our players who are shaping up to be good footballers. Joining a football club will help to develop that match awareness and hone the skills needed to be a good player.
“ I was pleased with how we played against Lanesend. This was a game we could have won against the team who ran out overall champions beating Bay 2-0.”
