BCFC U13 Girls win League Trophy Final thriller at Thatcham Town FC
Parents, Grandparents, brothers and sisters, aunties and uncles and Sunny the mascot were all ready to support and watch an exciting match. After winning the toss we decided to have first kick off. The game started off well, then someone from Laurel Park did a handball. we took the free kick and it got up to the other end then the goalkeeper picked it up and did a kick that went over the half way line and over the defenses head. Luckily we got back and kicked it away so they got nowhere near the goal. There were a lot of throw-ins that went very far-from both teams.
The game was very even and every time someone from our team went to take a shot, the goalkeeper from Laurel Park came out to the edge of the box and picked it up.
The first goal was in 10 minutes of the game, it was a very good goal by Maison; it rolled past the keeper and straight into the side of the net. Everyone started cheering and it was very loud!
Laurel Park took the kick off and about 5-10 minutes later scored a great goal. Number 15 from Laurel Park was outside the box getting ready to take a shot and no one was tackling her. She took the shot and it went through the goalkeepers hands.
No one scored another goal for the rest of the half.
About ten minutes through the second half, everyone was tackling and it was quite confusing to see who had the ball then Maison and Lucy ran out and stopped but the girl from Laurel Park was carrying on. Then the linesman waved his flag and it was a goal!
That was the score for the rest of the game but they had another chance that almost went in but Phoebe (the goalie) got a finger to it and it hit the post and and went out which was lucky. We were winning and keeping possession then the game ended.
