On 1st February 2014, the U 11 A team met at Russell House for their first tournament of 2014. Thankfully the threatened rain held off.
Granville’s first match was against Walthamstow Hall and the first half was very close. However, in the second half, our girls began to relax and pull away, winning the game 7 – 2.
Our second game was against Sevenoaks Prep, and again the first half was very close, with the score at half time being 2 – 2. Nonetheless, after a fast and furious second half the final score was 8 – 3 to The Granville.
Our final game in the first round was against St Michael’s which we won 5 – 1.
The team was now through to the semi-finals against Derwent Lodge. The girls started really well and were leading 4 – 1 at half time. Granville maintained their form winning the match 6 – 2.
The Granville met the hosts Russell House in the final. This was a very tight and exciting game. Russell House went into the lead and then we levelled the score; then 2 – 1 to RH, then 2 – 2. However Russell House then pulled away to a 4 – 2 lead at half time. After a quick half time pep talk The Granville went into the second half with determination and scored 4 more goals and only allowed 1 goal against them. They WON this very exciting final 6 – 5.
