South Ribble Football Competitions

PGHS Lionesses were out in force at the end of November as they took part in the Years 7 and 8 and the Years 9 and 10 South Ribble Girls football competitions at Penwortham Priory Academy. Both teams performed amazingly on two very chilly evenings.

Years 7 and 8 – Monday, 28th November

All the schools in South Ribble entered a team in this competition, meaning we had 10 games to play.

Our results were:

Won – 8

Drew – 2

Lost – 0  

We also had a clean sheet and conceded no goals.

When the results were in, we were named ‘Champions of South Ribble’ and the girls were so pleased!

It was thoroughly deserved as they played so well throughout, with strong tackles, accurate passing and fantastic teamwork and sportsmanship! It was a true team performance with every player playing a strong part in the team’s success. A special shout out goes to amazing goal keeping from Jessica L and Daisy L for brilliant play in the midfield. Well done to the rest of the team – Chloe M, Lucie J, Amelia M, Georgia B, Sophia W, Phoebe B and Isabelle M.

Years 9 and 10 – Tuesday, 29th November

8 teams from South Ribble entered this competition, meaning we had 7 games to play.

Our results were:

Won – 1

Drew – 3

Lost – 3

We finished in 6th place.

The positioning does not reflect the effort and skill that the girls displayed throughout. They battled well and were unlucky to lose the games that they did as they only lost by 1 goal in each game. They never gave up and played with the same enthusiasm and commitment until the very end. Special shout outs to fantastic goal keeping from Neve H and Evie H for their goal scoring. Well done to the rest of the team – Zara H, Hanya A, Rachel Waites, Louji A, Chelsea D and Tess S.
