Our Year 5 Girls were thrust into the limelight last Saturday, as they
stepped up to represent the KLASS Lions in this inaugural football tournament
hosted at MKIS. The girls had trained and played a few competitive matches in
Term 2, and drew on that experience to take on the opposition.
The girls started strong and dominated every game throughout the day,
showing close dribbling skills, intelligent passing, and diligent defending.
The substitutes came on to good effect fitting seamlessly into the formation
allowing the team strategy to work the ball down the wings and shoot on site.
Credit must go to our KLASS Lions defence, who played five games without
conceding a single goal. And as I always remind them, "if you don't
concede a goal, then you will never lose!" Also, recognition to Angelina
Kearney as the tournament's top scorer, Lily Abbiss for her first goal for the
school, and Natalie Hunter for a memorable diving save at full stretch to push
the ball round the post. So a fantastic start for these young girls, who have
shown the future is bright for Alice Smith girls football
