Our sporting heroes played an epic final in the Year 6 Cup against Abbey Gates Primary School yesterday evening. The team approached the challenge with a positive and resilient attitude. After going 1-0 down to Abbey Gates, we were then able to equalise thanks to Hollie - who will always bury the ball in the back of the net when it comes to her on her left foot just outside of the penalty area! A fantastic strike! Back in the game, Brierley turned up the pressure as they hunted for that second goal. Unfortunately for the team, they then became exposed at the back and conceded another goal. Our amazing footballers spent the remaining 10 minutes of the match fully testing the goalkeeper with some incredible efforts! When the full time whistle came, Brierley were disappointed to have been unable to score again.
The organisers of the cup complemented the players highly and said that it was some of the best football they had seen in the past few years at this level. I am incredibly proud of what the team have achieved this year and I wish them the very best of luck in their sporting ventures at their new schools!
