Our Year 8 Girls' Football Team beat TEMA 3-1 on Thursday, 14 November on a very cold night in the shadow of The Etihad Stadium.
After a closely contested first half, which ended at 0-0, TEMA scored within 30 seconds of the restart. Most teams at this point may of struggled to get back into the game, but it literally spurred WHGS on! We hit the post three times in the space of two minutes, then finally a quick double by Matilde put us 2-1 up. Tia added the third to secure a well deserved win.
Special mention goes to all the girls, but in particular Duaa and the captain Maria, who were first to every second ball and drove the WHGS team forward.
The girls are now through to the Year 8 Cup Quarter Finals. Absolutely fantastic!
