Year 8 Festival
This week thew year 8 football team attended triangular a 9-a-side tournament at Oasis Brightstowe, with Bristol Free School making up the trio of teams.
Free school were our first opponents and the match ended in a 2-2 draw. The Cotham goals coming from a curling free kick by Mekhi Duncan and from the relentless work ethic of Beni Labamba following a cross from the byline from Sohail Khan.
Unfortunately we suffered a defeat against Oasis as we couldn't cope with their surplus pace in attack and all of their goals came from quick breaks.
The stand out performer of the day was Tiye Thomas Smith who grasped every possible opportunity to slide in for a goal saving tackle.
Despite only having 4 players for the 5-a-side game against Oasis Academy Brightstowe, Amina Birdi, Fern Cory, Amy Howe and Youny Kwon put in a fantastic performance in an entertaining 3-3 draw at OAB. Amina made some fantastic saves to deny OAB on several occasions. Amy Howe made some critical tackles to prevent OAB getting any further shots on goal. Youny Kwon demonstrated some brilliant runs to help create opportunities for Cotham to break down the OAB defence. This led to Fern bagging herself a much deserved hat-trick and the accolade of Player of the Match. Miss McDonagh is immensely proud of each of the girls for their determination and spirit they demonstrated.
