Successful season for BSYFC Girls’ footballJuly 21st, 2016
On Sunday June 14th the Bradley Stoke Youth FC Girl Teams of U11’s, U13’s and U14’s rolled into the Brislington Juniors Tournament. The rain had stopped and the sun was shining so great conditions for football. The gazebo’s were all built and put in a location near to the relevant pitches and we were all ready for a 1.30pm start.
BSYFC U14’s played 5 matches of 6 a-side format in their group. The score in 3 of the matches was 0-0. The other 2 matches ended in wins of 2-0 and 1-0. So the team were unbeaten in the group and with no goals conceded. Goal scorers were Emily Holbrook with 1 and Molly Bose with 2. This was good enough to see the team into the final where they played Bristol Ravens.
Now in the 2015 tournament BSYFC had 2 teams through to the semi-finals and they both played Bristol Ravens with Bristol Ravens winning both semi-finals to go through into the final. So BSYFC were looking for some closure on those results and started the final very strong. We had several chances in first half but could not make the break through. Then midway in the second half Katie Jones had a power shot from just inside the opposition half which the goal keeper saved but Molly Bose was following up to tap the ball into the net for 1-0. BSYFC then stayed secure until the final whistle to come out with a well deserved victory and to win the Brislington Tournament 2016 without actually letting a single goal in … that’s good defending for you. Congratulations to the squad of: Emily Holbrook, Sophie Robertson, Rebecca Humphrey, Emily Razey, Charlotte Mason, Katie Jones, Molly Bose and Aimee Hancock.
BSYFC U13’s played in 5 matches of 9 a-side format in their group. The score in 2 matches was 0-0. The other 3 matches ended in wins of 1-0. So the team was unbeaten in the group and with no goals conceded again. Goal scorers were Chloe Davies, Katie Rawlings and Lydia Tang. This was good enough to see the team into the final where they played AEK Boco. The final was a tight affair with AEK Boco taking the lead only to see BSYFC storm back to level the score at 1-1 with a goal from Karam Nirwan. The match then went to extra time where no further scoring took place and the match finished 1-1. The game now had to be decided on penalties. Each team had to take 3 penalties and the score was still level at 3 penalties each converted. It then went to sudden death penalties with AEK Boco finally winning 4-3. So BSYFC were runners up but what a good show they put on for the day. Congratulations to the squad of: Becky Douglas, Paige Fowler, Chloe Davies, Hannah Lewis, Maddie Hilbert, Olivia Hood, Lydia Tang, Katie Rawlings, Karam Nirwan, Millie Hooper and Erin Welsh.
BSYFC U11’s played 5 matches of 6 a-side format in their group. Their results were : Won 2, Drew 2 and Lost 1. This was just not quite good enough to qualify out of the group and they finished in 3rd place but the team played really well against some tough opposition and they all enjoyed the day.
