Girls' Test Park Football Tournament

Earlier this week, Team Oakwood sent sent a group of 8 girls to represent Oakwood at the Test Park Football Tournament.
Oakwood were drawn in Group B so had four group games. Things got off to a great start with Oakwood beating Townhill 3-0. During their second game, try as they might, Oakwood could not find a breakthrough goal against Bitterne C of E - the Bitterne 'keeper making a number of close quarter saves: the score finished 0-0. Oakwood did manage to score in the third game, a 1-0 victory over St Monica 'B'. Nothing but a win against current group leaders Mansbridge would allow Oakwood to progress to the semi-finals  but a defensive effort from Mansbridge kept Oakwood at bay the final score 0-0.

So despite not conceding a single goal whilst winning two and drawing two, Oakwood did not progress to the knock-out rounds on goal difference alone!

Well done to all the girls who represented Oakwood so well and to our three goal scorers: Mia (1), Millie T (1) and Praise (1).
