Congratulations to the Loreto High School under 13s Girls football team who narrowly missed out on winning the Final of the Premier League Schools Tournament played at The Cliff on Friday 10th March.
A total of 120 schools (High and Primary) entered the competition so Loreto really excelled to take second place overall in the High schools competition. After coming top in their group at the semi finals the Loreto girls played Sale Grammar who came top of the other group. The lucky winners will represent United at Stamford Bridge in May. The game was tightly contested throughout with Loreto having more of the chances but they somehow found themselves 2-0 down with 5 mins left to play. Loreto scored and made the last few mins very tense. With their star player Ellise doing everything in her power to equalize, the ball just wouldn’t go over the line and Sale hung on to seal the win. A huge well done to Ellise, Kizzy, Jessica, Ellie, Amelia, Nakatto, Erin and Rhianna and to their coach Miss Marshall.
