Junior Girls Soccer
Junior Girls Soccer team crowned runner up at State Championship!
After months of training and hard work the junior girls’ soccer team finally played on the big stage- the SSV Soccer State Championship at Darebin International Sports Centre. The girls played 3 fantastic games against teams from all around the state, these victories placed them in the State Final against Uni Hill Secondary College.
The girls started strong scoring the first goal in the final to only have Uni Hill scoring via a penalty given 2 minutes later. At half time the scores were even and the girls went into the second half determined to score another goal to place them in front. After 15 minutes of attacking the game finished as a draw- 1 goal apiece. The girls went straight into time on for the next 10 minutes with both teams unable to score. A penalty shootout was the only way to decide who would take out the State Title. It took 7 girls from each team to decide the victor, which was Uni Hill.
The girls displayed good sportsmanship in the defeat shaking the hands and congratulating their opponents. It was a very shattering moment for everyone associated with the team but also a very proud one to be awarded second place in the state. The girls should all be congratulated on their efforts not only on the day but in the lead up as well.
It was an absolute pleasure coaching such an enthusiastic and determined group of girls. Looking forward to next year’s tournament!
