On Tuesday 27th of September 2016 the year 5/6 girls: Tiana, Cara, Amber, Freya, Abby, Sophia and Nicole all went to the Ivybridge Community College to play a football tournament against 11 other schools.
Our first match was against Modbury, we were all nervous about playing our first game.
"I was nervous I would not be good at playing football but I am glad I did it! We made some excellent passes which resulted in our first goal of the match scored by Nicole’s knee." Cara
“I was a bit shocked that I scored the first goal with my knee.” - Nicole
With some tricky moves from the other side we defended to the best of our ability with us scoring another goal by Cara, winning the match 2-0. We then played Yealmpton A with us unfortunately losing one- nil. With our high spirits we went into our next game against Woodlands. Tiana pulled off some awesome football moves which out witted the other team providing an excellent pass to Nicole which turned into a goal.
“It was good and me and the rest of the team had fun we came 3rd and I was quite surprised about that, there was a couple of hard games” - Tiana
Our Goalie- Abby was very focussed when the other team attempted a goal. The defence were hot on the opposition heels. Lastly our last match was against Shaugh prior our first goal was kicked by Abby with the others help to tackle Shaugh prior; Tiana scored the two final goals which left us winning the game when Shaugh prior didn’t score any goals! After we had we finished our games we all had a rest and some of us had fun playing with the school football. After that they announced who the winners are in first place was Manor, second was Yealmpton and third was the Erme.
