A mixed set of results at the first of the Girl’s football league matches.
The U15 team had an extremely successful night with 3 wins out of 3. First game against Campion saw Kacie Morby score a hatrick an the team win 3-0, Poppy Lummis pulled off some outstanding shots to ensure that Southam finished with a clean sheet. The second match against Aylesford saw Sarah Costa put one past the keeper which was enough for the victory. Olivia Constable and Niamh Purnell helped to keep a clean sheet. Final game against Myton, probably the toughest match saw Sarah again saving the day for another 1-0 victory.
Both U13 team’s had two tough matches. The year 8 team played a Myton team and unfortunately let 1 goal in to lose 1-0, however the team fought right to the end with Abbie Bourton and Poppy Hilton continuing to battle with the Myton players however they couldn’t claw a goal back. The final game saw the girls lose to a Aylesford team 2-0. The year 7 team had an equally tough night in their first match they went down 2-0 to a very good Myton team – even with some fab saves from Amy Stanley. Second match saw the girls work together and secure a 1-1 draw against Aylesford with the goal coming from Gracie’s corner and deflecting off one of the defenders.
Well done tonight, hopefully another good turn out next week.

Tonight the year 7 netball team had their first mini tournament at NLS. This saw lots of schools from around the area attend an evening full of short matches.
First game saw Southam play a very strong Aylesford team. The girls started well with some good interceptions from Hannah Nelson but unfortunately Aylesford had a very strong GA who was able to dominate the play of the match which slightly distracted the Southam team and the final score was 4-0 to Aylesford.
Second match the girls seemed to switch on a lot more and the play was much more fluent along the court with some excellent inter play between Ellie Miller, Ruby Jackson and Holly Hart which saw the Southam team sneak ahead to a 3-0 victory against NLS.
Final match of the evening was against Campion, this is where Abby Mawby played her best game of netball at centre. She had some brilliant interceptions which allowed the Southam girl’s to take their second victory 3-2.
Well done tonight girl’s you have a lot of potential we just need to start to develop as a team.
