St Benedict’s School Year 8 girls football team have racked up the goals to see them reach the County Cup final.

They had a fantastic win last week, putting 14 goals in the back of the net without reply, against Ulverston Victoria, to take them through to the final.

Miss Powe, subject leader for PE, was highly impressed with the performance.

She said: “It was a fabulous performance. We controlled the ball, passed with precision and most importantly were clinical with our shots.”

Goal scorers were Emi Rudd (4), Sophie Douglas (4), Ellie Callander (2), Keira Clark (3) and Laya McKendrey (1).

Mr Bridgman, acting headteacher at St Benedict’s, said: “Congratulations to all the girls and the staff involved in the preparation and training for this match and the previous rounds.

“They all gave 100 per cent to the final whistle and thoroughly deserved the victory.

“The effort, attitude and skills they showed were a credit to themselves and to the school.”

The game was played at home on St Benedict’s new artificial pitch on Monday afternoon. The final will be played sometime in March.

Team: Sophie Douglas, Emi Rudd, Kaela Reay, Keira Clark, Jessica Bridgman, Poppy Fitzwiliam, Izzy Foster, Jessica Kitchen, Layla Fatialofa, Sienna McNicholson, Ellie Callander, Laya McKendrey.
