QE’s Fantastic Final at EFL Trust Girls Cup

On Friday 10th November, QE took part in the ELF Trust Girls Cup football tournament, along with over 150 girls from other schools. The QE U13 team had a great result and have made it through to the regional finals. Jessica Sandland, a Year 8 student at QE and Captain of the U13 Girls Football Team commented:

“On Friday 10 November 2017 we travelled to Exeter University to play a football tournament. It was a real privilege to Captain the team at this event.

We had 9 players Jessica Vodden, Katie Salter, Maddie Taylor, Hollie Seward, Nicola Robinson, Ellie Bishop, Flora O’Sullivan, Talitha Roche and myself.

We played 4 qualifying 6 a side games of a flat 10 minutes. We drew the first game 1-1, the second game we drew 0-0, third game we won 6-0 and the fourth game we won 2-1. This qualified us for the quarter finals where we went up against West Exe school and won 3-1 in a great performance against a really strong team. We progressed to the semi-finals and the game ended 0-0 so we had to decide it on penalties which we won 2-0.

The final was another tough game which ended 1-1 but it was good as we had the girls from West Exe cheering us on. Again it was decided on penalties and we won 1-0. It was a fantastic day and we all played well as a team. We are all looking forward to going to Bristol to compete at the regionals in January.”

Great effort girls!
