Year 7 & 8 Girls Football

The Year 7 and 8 girls football team played Elton High, Bury in the first round of the cup. It was a challenging game for the girls, but they never gave up hope. Abigail Aspinal and Charlotte Duke worked hard at the back in defence making many solid clearances. In the midfield, Robyn Kelly was outstanding, supported by Kayleigh Adair, Lucy Dolphin and Marina Maricello who worked hard together to try make runs through the oppositions defence.

Elton produced an unexpected long range shot to put Brownedge 1-0 behind. Then, just before full time, Martina Maricello (7T) scored an equaliser clinching a draw for Brownedge meaning extra time was required. There were no further goals in extra time and penalties were required. Megan Felton made a number of superb saves helping Brownedge win the shoot-out 3-1.

In the fourth round, the team played in extremely wet conditions against Archbishop Temple of Fulwood, Preston. They stepped up to the challenge but were unfortunately defeated ending their time in the cup.

The girls also played in a 7 a side tournament at Blackburn Rovers. The team comprised of Megan Felton, Abigail Aspinal, Alyssia Lane, Phoebe Henderson, Casey Lomas, Martina Maricello, Robyn Kelly, Lucy Dolphin and Gabriella Michalakakos. The team played well with many showing good performances. The girls achieved 3rd place, and narrowly lost out to progressing into the very final stages of the tournament.
