QEGS Horncastle Hosts Y7&8 Girls Football Tournament May 2024

Last week, QEGS Horncastle hosted the 8 teams for the Year 7 and 8 girls' football tournament. This wonderful event showcased the talent of young athletes but also the spirit of sportsmanship.

With two teams representing QEGS in the tournament, anticipation was high. The girls did not disappoint, showcasing their skills and determination on the field. Despite facing formidable opponents, both QEGS teams demonstrated exceptional performance, with one emerging as the champions and the other securing an impressive fifth place.

One of the tournament's highlights was Lydia's remarkable goal scored directly from a corner. Furthermore, Natasha's outstanding save during the crucial semi-final match kept QEGS in the competition, sending them through to the final where they delivered a dominating performance. No goals were conceded by the team throughout the group stages or the finals which resulted in them being crowned champions.
Beyond the victories and accolades, what truly shone was the sportsmanship displayed by all participants. Throughout the games, the girls exhibited not only their athletic prowess but also a commendable spirit of fair play and respect for their opponents.

Moreover, the tournament served as a platform for many new players to showcase their talents for the first time. Their fantastic debut performances were a testament to their dedication and hard work, promising a bright future for girls' football at QEGS Horncastle.

As we reflect on the success of this year's tournaments, we extend our congratulations to all the girls who participated. Your commitment, passion, and teamwork have made us incredibly proud. A special appreciation goes to our dedicated Y10 referees, Seth, Will and Harrison. We also express our appreciation to our team managers, Lacey, Jess, and Millie, whose guidance and leadership served as an inspiration to all. As role models for their peers, they epitomise the values of dedication and sportsmanship that we strive to instil in our students.
