Congratulations to Annie, Tayla, Emily, Elise and Nyanzobe who won the MK Schools YR9 Girls 5 a-side Football Tournament hosted here at Walton High.
They played a total of six games leading up to the final and won them all with a goal difference of +18. In the final they played Denbigh who they had already beaten 1-0.
The final was great. Our girls played their hearts out. Denbigh were a good side, but we were technically better and took our chances when it mattered. Walton High won that game 5-3.
Nyanzobe proved what a goal machine she is by scoring a total of 13 goals and Miss South gave her the Player of the Tournament award. Players’ Player went to Elise who scored a wonder goal by turning to hit a powerful right footed volley from a wide angle.
All the girls played so well. They are also very aware that a new school record is a real possibility, having won the same tournaments as YR7s and YR8s. If they win as YR10s and 11s, that will be a school record. As a team, they are very focused on this now.
