U12 Girls Football Team win at Cheadle Hulme
Last Saturday, the U12 girls football team travelled on a sunny morning to Cheadle Hulme School. The team had already convincingly beaten Cheadle Hulme at the start of the term, but this time they faced much stronger opposition in a combined U12-U13 team.
The College played much of the first half at a slower than normal pace with many passes going astray in the midfield. The forward line of Anna R and the ever running Mischa O'C playing in the Bobby Firmino role were starved of any real service, and it was only towards the end of the first half that the College showed anything like their normal passing game.
After a much needed half time team talk, the College came bursting out of the blocks at the start of the second half, and produced some superb passing with the ball. The opening goal was nothing like a pass and move situation as this time the College went direct and a goal kick from Lily N played in Anna R who made no mistake blasting the ball past the Cheadle Hulme goalkeeper and into the net. The second came soon after involving Liverpool College's very own front three similar to Liverpool FC's Salah, Mane and Firmino. This time it was Mischa O'C and Anna R who combined for Giselle R to bundle the ball into the net.
The latter stages saw the College drop their energy levels and nearly pay the price apart from a stunning double save from goalkeeper Lily N which was similar to the Banks versus Pele save all those years ago. The final whistle blew and the College team raised their hands in the air to celebrate a triumphant morning of Football.
Well done to all the team!
