The year 7 girls football team went on a coach to Harwich Leisure Centre to play against The Harwich School on Astroturf. We did our warm ups and were ready to play a good game of football.
The whistle blew and the game began with a quick pass from Emily to Cloe, who took the ball away with a good pace and had an attempt for a goal.
Harwich were a strong team with excellent passing and an even stronger defence.
TTC kept moving forward and Emily’s attempt for a goal hit the side crossbar and Cloe was able to pick up the ball and scored the first goal for the TTC year 7 girls.
Harwich then equalised and put us under more pressure. The TTC year 7 defence and midfield kept the ball moving which led to a corner and Ellie scored the second goal for TTC.
Half time score 2-2.
TTC started the second half with some excellent play from Shona and Megan with good defensive skills from Natalie and Leonie. Madeline made her debut and played really well.
The conditions were very windy and it was difficult to control the ball but the TTC girls kept the pressure on and scored another three goals to end the match 5-2 to TTC, with a hat-trick from Cloe.
Another excellent win and now we go on to play in the final!
