The Bishop Harvey Goodwin school girls football team travelled to George Romney school in Dalton-in-Furness to compete in the County finals of the u11 schools tournament.


The girls had three group games; St Beghs of Whitehaven, George Romney and Dane Ghyll (both Barrow district schools).


Bishop Goodwin won their first game 3-1 after being a goal behind but managed to compose themselves to the early shock of conceding.


The girls then drew 0-0 in their next game v George Romney, the host school, after launching wave after wave of attack but couldn’t find their way through a stubborn George Romney defence.


Going into the final group game, the girls knew that thanks to other results going their way, both BHG and their opponents, Dane Ghyll, would be progressing to the semi finals, it was just a case of who would top the group. The game finished 0-0 so it would be Bishop Goodwin who would top the group and play the runners up from the other group.


Sir John Barrow school from Ulverston would present the next opponents for Bishop Goodwin. The girls from Currock winning 1-0.


So it was to be a final v South Walney, the team that had knocked the school out the competition twelve months before.


After withstanding early South Walney pressure, Bishop Goodwin went on to win the final 3-0.


A fabulous effort from Jodie, Macy, Melissa, Rachel, Eloise, Caitlin, Keira, Sammi and Kali, who now move onto the Northern area finals in Spring 2015. Well done girls!
