U13 Girls’ National Football Cup
Having won through the first round of the U13 Girls’ National Football Cup with a close 1-0 victory against Coombeshead, St Peter’s faced Teignmouth at home on Tuesday 10th October. The early part of the game was fairly even, with St Peter’s a little slow to start, however within minutes there was some excellent play from the home team and pressure on the ball was rewarded with a goal from Ellen. Further goals followed in the first half from Dixon (2) and an excellent strike from outside the box by Ava. Teignmouth’s attacks were effectively nullified by Carmen, Tabby and Erin in a strong defensive back line.
The second half continued much as the first had ended with Dixon adding a further hat-trick to her tally. Excellent passing football from Kate, Saiorse and Isabelle contributed to a strong team performance, ably assisted by utility player Gabs. Special mention to Alice who made her debut in goal and showed considerable composure. The next round will be drawn on Monday 16th October.
