Lark Hill Girls V Lewis Street

On Thursday 11th May, Lark Hill girls football traveled to Eccles RUFC to play a football match against Lewis Street. In Glorious sunshine Lark Hill Defended brilliantly to keep the Lewis street forwards off the score sheet. Some great counter attacking football from Nerea put Lewis street on the defensive, but Lark Hill could not capitalise. Lewis street attacked well and despite a great first save by Anssu, nothing could be done about the rebound shot that flew into the back of the net. 1-0 at half time.


The Lark Hill girls were determined to get on the score sheet in the second half. Farrah, Nerea and Nurh attacked up the right hand side. As the ball came across the box the shot by Darci just went wide. Lark Hill were now playing football in the Lewis Street half, which gave the opposition's flying right back chance to counter effectively. This led to a further 2 goals being scored. The final score was 3-0 to Lewis street. The girls were competitive throughout  the game and were a credit to themselves and the school. Great effort girls!

A Hard Fought Draw For LH Girls


The Lark Hill girls football team performed valiantly to come back from a goal down against Lewis Street on Tuesday. 


It was a cold afternoon when the girls from Lark Hill arrived at Eccles RUFC. In the first half the Lewis Street team looked on top, playing most of the football in the Lark Hill half. But, good defending from Caitlin and Clarinha kept them off the score sheet. Eventually though, a good pass put the Lewis street striker in on goal and a clean strike sent the ball whizzing past Anssu in goal. 


In the second half the Lark Hill team began to play with more confidence and the start making accurate passes, which enabled them to play into the Lewis street half. As Nerea tried to play a pass towards Nurh, just outside the opposition box, it was cut out by the defender. From the resultant throw in Darci found herself in great position with the ball at her feet. Striking the ball with her weaker foot, it streaked into the bottom left corner. 


The final score was 1-1. It was good performance from a team that hasn't been able to play together, but there is still a lot to work on. 

Best player of the match was given to Nurh.

Lark Hill Shine on a Wet Afternoon

Lark Hill Shine on a Wet Afternoon 1

The Lark Hill football team arrived in a confident mood at the JP league on Thursday. However, they didn't get off to the greatest start, losing the first 2 games 2-0 and 2-1, respectively. After a good team talk, all of the players rallied to come from 2-0 behind and draw against a quality Irlam Endowed A team. This gave the Lark Hill team confidence and they went on to win the next 2 games 5-1 and 7-0. 


It was a great afternoon of football and even when the heavens opened it couldn't dampen the Lark Hill spirit. Well done to all of the players but the man of the match award goes to Conlan Scholes, who was a team player throughout.
