Scottish Schools' Football Association Girls' U14 Sevens

Posted on 03rd Jan 2014 in The Mary Erskine School

 A group of nine MES footballers took part in the finals of the Scottish Schools' Football Association Girls' U14 Sevens at Toryglen, Glasgow.  The competition was open to all secondary schools in Scotland, and, having won the South-Eastern regional round via penalty shoot-out in October, the MES girls took their place alongside five other regional champions.  They began the group stage in top form, beating the Park Mains High School 8-0, before securing top spot with a 3-1 win over Perth Academy.  This set up a decider against Graeme High School from Falkirk, one of the SFA's 'performance schools'.  The game was a tight affair, with Graeme High School taking the lead through a slick attack, before doubling their lead from a corner.  Once MES started to up the tempo they pulled a goal back, but the final whistle blew as they were pushing for an equaliser, resulting in a narrow 2-1 defeat.  Congratulations to the girls for their hard work and determination - Georgia Adderley, Kirsty Buist, Sarah Hedley, Katie Mackinnon, Grace Molloy, Niamh Ritchie, Eilidh Rust and Morag Toellner.
