The College U16 girls’ football team beat Gordano School by 2 goals to 1 to win the Somerset County Cup 2016 for the 3rd year in a row.

The Fome team started strong and had 5 chances in the first half, but struggled to get the ball over the line, ending in 0 - 0 at half time.

In the 2nd half, the College girls fought even harder and Chloe Gilroy scored from great passes made between Lucy Macy, Ellie Stripple and Katie Minty, but Gordano School equalised with a goal straight from a corner.

Ellie Forrester and Macy Ford battled hard in the center to stop Gordano breaking through. Chloe Hill marked well and was relentless in her battling but Frome missed a few chances and it looked like it would go to extra time. Then Chloe Gilroy scored a fantasitc goal with a half volley and lobbing the keeper from 25 yards. Mary Brant and Josey Taylor defended well to stop Gordano's wingers from equalising and the final whistle blew crowning Frome College the Somerset County Cup winners for 2016!

The whole team were outstanding and we are proud of them all -  Betty Restorick, Ellie Forrester, Charlotte Buxton, Mary Brant, Josey Taylor, Macy Ford,  Chloe Hill, Lucy Macy, Katie Minty, Ellie Stripple, Chloe Gilroy, Darcy Marshall, Chloe Tanner.

 

'Player of the Match' went to Katie Minty for her outstanding effort and performance.  Charlotte Buxton kept Gordano School from ever having a chance to shoot by commanding th defence.  Ellie Stripple dominated the center of the pitch and played some lovely balls to Chloe Gilroy.

 

Well done to them all on a great acheivement.
