Girls' Football Tournament

Last Tuesday, Mr Kennedy and Mrs French accompanied two teams of girls to the annual Newtownabbey Area Girls' Football Tournament at the Valley complex. The A team played 4 matches in their group. In their first game they lost 3-0 to St Bernards PS before losing 2-0 in their second game to St MacNissi's PS. In their third game against Whitehouse B team however, they played much better. Jenna Henderson scored 2 goals and Mea Foster scored one to win the game 3-0. In the final group game against Carnmoney PS, Jenna scored a hat-trick while the girls conceded only 1 goal to win the game 3-1.

The B team played 5 games in their group. In their first game they drew 1-1 against Lowwood PS, Chloe Montgomery scoring the Fairview goal. The girls won their second game against King's Park PS 2-0, Chloe Montgomery and Arianna Smyth scoring the goals. The girls suffered their first defeat in their next game against Whitehouse PS A team, losing 3-0. However, the girls finished the day with two more draws, both games finishing 1-1 against Glengormley PS and Greenisland PS. Chloe Montgomery and Arianna Smyth again scored the goals. Unfortunately, neither team progressed to the semi-finals this year but every girl had a great day playing football in the sunshine.
