Extra time needed in the district 6-a-side final
Broxbourne entered a year 7 girls’ football team into the district 6-a-side tournament, for the first time last week. The squad of seven played extremely well winning one and drawing two of the group games. Tied on points with Presdales the girls had to participate in a penalty shoot out to make the final. Ellie Oswick, Jessica Simmons and Holly Chandler stepped forward to successfully score; with Tiegan Bird saving one it meant that the team would face St Mary’s in the final.
Despite having most of the possession, in the final seconds of extra time the girls conceded a goal to finished runners-up. The evening was great fun and everyone played extremely well.
The squad - Ellie Oswick (c), Jessica Simmons, Holly Chandler, Tiegan Bird, Charlotte Lowe, Dilayda Yilmaz, Neive Stevens.
