CSSA Primary Girls Soccer Gala Day

2017 cssa primary girls soccer gala dayWell done to the Primary Girls Soccer Team on a fantastic day at the CSSA Primary Girls Soccer Gala Day. The team consisted of a mixture of primary girls from Years 4, 5 and 6. There were 20 teams that entered the competition. We were placed in Pool B and faced 3 round games.

The girls were off to a great start for the day, winning their first game 4-0 against Norwest. Their skills only continued to develop and improve and this continued into their second game, defeating William Carey 6-0. It was a great team effort in this game having four different girls in the team score goals.

Our final pool game of the day was our toughest competition yet, coming up against Richard Johnson who were also undefeated in their first two games. It was a tough match with the end score being a draw, 0-0. The decision on the winning team came down to corner kicks and Richard Johnson came away with the win by two.

After a nervous wait, the girls gained 4th spot in the ladder at the end of the pool games, therefore qualifying for the quarter finals. The girls were matched up against Belmont. It was a close game, until late in the second half where Eloise scored a goal to secure us the win. This win pushed us into the semi-finals.

In the semi-final we played against Shire, who showed early they were going to be a tough competition. At half time it was a draw at nil all. In the second half we conceded two goals, going down to the Shire 2-0.

This resulted in Pacific Hills placing 4th overall for the whole Gala Day.

The girls had a fantastic day and showed great sportsmanship not only to other teams but each other. They also had fun and developed their soccer skills along the way.

A special mention goes to Eloise Bingham who scored a total of 9 goals throughout the day!
All the girls should be proud of their efforts! Well done girls!
