The U15s had their first football festival of the season today, welcoming Charter and Ascot to Regent’s.
With excitement, the girls took to the pitch to face Charter first. It was a messy start with Charter scoring first but the girls reacted positively and with some quick reactions from Grace she levelled the game. In the second half, the girls pulled together and produced some beautiful passing combinations, particularly between Shree, Grace and Fay. The defence worked hard but Charter slotted through a second goal. Fay reacted with a strong strike to level the game.
In our second game, we faced a very skilled Ascot side. Shree calmed the nerves early by scoring from a well timed strike. Ascot showed great passing and strong attacking play but they didn’t level until the second half. They took advantage of our doubts and slotted away 2 more goals. However, Regents never gave up. Noon was strong in defence and supporting in midfield. Benz took to the pitch with amazing focus in defence. A whole team effort gave Grace the opportunity to score our second goal, ending the game 3-2 to Ascot.
We are really looking forward to our next festival and hopefully by even stronger as a team!
Well done everyone! Player of the festival for her unrelenting energy is Grace!
