On Wednesday 22nd June 2016, it was the girls’ chance to shine!
We took at team of 8 girls to play in the Plymouth Argyle Girls Football Tournament at St Josephs, Launceston. There were 8 teams competing overall.
Our first game was against St Stephens who beat us as it took us a while to find our feet. However as the games went on, we started to work well as a team, communicate with each other and play some brilliant football.
A special mention has to go to Freya Richards who started in goal but then was moved to striker. What a striker she was seeing her score 2 goals against St Josephs. The goals didn’t stop there, we also won 3 nil against St Catherines. We were then through to the finals which was an extremely exciting moment for the Lewannick girls!!
We lost in the finals but came 2nd out of the whole tournament which was a huge success. What made Miss Bowden proud was that after every match against every school, the Lewannick girls would shake hands and give three cheers to the opposing team. We had great sportsmanship and that’s what sport is about. Well done girls!!
