Slazenger girls under 14’s secured promotion to league 6 with fantastic team performances on Sunday.
Slazengers dominated in both their games, demonstrating great supportive play with movement on and off the ball. Pre tournament team talks centred (amongst other things) around the need to score goals as promotion had previously been denied when a better goal difference would have been enough.
The girls did not disappoint scoring 3 in the first game against Huddersfield with goals from Leah Pearman, Abigail Collins and Katie Minchella.
The second game saw Slazenger double their previous efforts, putting 6 in the second against Driffield. Katie Minchella netted a hat trick to add to her first goal in the earlier game, with Gabby Giggle, Megan Popple and Alice Cass rounding off the goals. The flurry of goals was matched at the other end with some brilliant defending and great saves from goalkeeper Lideya Booth meaning that a clean sheet was maintained throughout.
