Girls Football Match Wednesday 12th February 2020
The girls headed to Southgate School to compete against 2 top Enfield borough teams. It was always going to be a tough ask for little St Andrews Southgate. The first game against Merryhills proved the girls ability, with Elia scoring the first 2 goals, St Andrew's took a 2-0 lead. Merryhills pulled back a goal taking the score to 2-1. With perseverance, the girls collectively showed their strength resulting in another goal by Elia, completing her hat trick of the match. The final result, a 3-1 win! A great performance, the girls played with a fantastic attitude and real will to win the game.
The second game was against the strongest team in the borough, Eversley. Unfortunately they proved to be too much of a challenge for St Andrew's and the girls found themselves 6-0 down at half time. Coach Antony changed things in the second half, playing a more defensive game and managing to stop Eversley from scoring any further goals, which in itself was a huge testament to their understanding of the game and improvement.
