On Tuesday 19th January, St Joseph's Year 7 Girls’ Football team played their first match against Churchfields. The team included Jessica De Mello, Olivia Bath, Katie King, Lorna Kamau, Mia Grace, Ashley Boby, and Jessica Bebey Bana. The game started quickly with St Joseph's taking the lead by Olivia scoring the first goal with another two goals quickly being scored by Katie. St Joseph’s showed excellent team work and this was backed up by Jessica B who was a strong Goal Keeper and stopped Churchfields from scoring in the first half. Because St Joseph’s managed to stop Chirchfields from scoring it meant that they were confident going into the second half. In the second half Churchfields scored two early goals. However, St Joseph’s fought back and Jessica D scored two more goals which took the pressure off the St Joseph’s Girls’. Shortly after Olivia scored her second goal and we were awarded a penalty which Lorna scored and confirmed a St Joseph’s win. The final score of the match was 8-2 to St Joseph’s. Churchfields awarded the player of the match to Katie.
