Bradford U11 Girls Football Champions…again!

For the second consecutive year Hothfield  are the Bradford School Games football champions.

Free-flowing football, penalty saves, top quality goals, bruises & blood and sportsmanship aplenty, Hothfield won 3 and drew 1 of their four group stage matches to top the group. 

Undefeated in their group stage matches, Hothfield progressed to the semi- finals. Hothfield, who up to this point, had played well but not shown their best form, really turned on the style in the semi final, winning 5-0.
The final was simply a fantastic match. Hothfield raced into a 2-0 lead, and led 3-1 at the break. Heaton upped their game in the second half and clawed themselves back to parity. With seconds left, Chloe F went on a mazy run and coolly slotted home a dramatic winner. 

Group Stage:

Hothfield 3-1 Crossflatts

Hothfield 2-2 St Anthony’s

Hothfield 2-1 Fagley

Hothfield 3-1 Lidget Green

Semi Final:

South Craven Cup

Glorious sunshine and glorious football. The annual South Craven Cup at Steeton Primary School didn’t disappoint. 

Our Year 6 boys team drew both of their matches against Steeton and won both of their matches against Eastburn. Lewis G sealed a last gasp victory in our first game with a right footed finish into the bottom corner after a superb Zidane-esque pirouette set him clear. Joe A scored the pick of the bunch in our second win with a thunderous drive into the top corner from distance. Sam B made an exceptional diving save to preserve our clean sheet in the second draw v Steeton. Unfortunately, we finished 2nd on goal difference to Steeton.

Well done Joe A, Lewis G, Sam B, Josh E, Harvey D and Spencer B.

Our Year 6 girls team won all four of their games by scores of 3-2, 3-2, 4-1 and 5-1. The pick of our goals came in our first match against Steeton – Alana sweeping the ball home after an intricate passing move. Rachel S made some tremendous saves in her first ever appearance in goal. Marissa and Scarlet used their strength and skill to dominate the opposition defences and scored goal after goal with tidy finishes. Lola was a rock in defence and midfield – hardly letting a single ball get past her. She scored 4 penalties and a couple of shots from long range. Hothfield were deservedly crowned the champions.

Well done Lola C, Marissa L, Scarlet B, Rachel S and Alana M.

So four years of Hothfield football for these children has come to end, but what a four years it has been. I’m sure we will see your names in sporting lights in the future. Well done all!
