U15s Cheam v St Philomena's
Cheam Girls played against St Philomena's last Thursday to decide the Sutton Football League.
Cheam started off really well with Jess Xentsa and Louise Winfield pushing forward every chance they had. Cheam's replacement goalkeeper Steph Waterman-Roberts dived and saved many shots at goal, keeping St Philomena's away with the help of Lexie Crabtree, Sophie Elliott and Lace Edgcombe. Eighteen minutes into the game Rachel Wood ran down the line and passed the ball to Amy Woollard who received it and scored an amazing goal making it 1-0.
Shortly before half time St. Philomena's striker got through our defence and Steph dived but didn't have a chance of saving it, making the score 1-1.
The second half saw injuries to Charley Edwards and Alice Doolin, who had to come off the pitch leaving Cheam one short. The girls tried to keep it together but St Philomena's were too strong and scored another two making it 3-1. The rest of the team were Shannon Chaplin and Molly Haynes (injured).
Cheam U15 finished third and 1 point from becoming second out of ten in the Sutton Schools' Girls' Football League.

U15 Girls' Football
On Thursday the 25th, the girls played Stanley Park at home. They had a very positive start, passing the ball crisply around the midfield. After ten minutes, Louise Winfield shot a successful goal, making it 1-0 to Cheam.
Cheam were very strong, with Rachel Wood and Alice Doolin crossing the ball into the box for Charley Edwards to receive. Molly Haynes had a quiet time in goal as the defence Lexie Crabtree, Leah Hudson, Sophie Elliott and Amy Woollard fought every ball and kept Stanley Park out. With five minutes to go before half time, Rachel scored a powerful strike making it 2-0 to Cheam.
The second half, however, was a different story. Cheam were sleepy from the start and gave away a sloppy goal. A few minutes later, they conceded another goal, making it 2-2. The team became unsettled and injuries started to arise. A few changes had to be made to the formation. Keya Amin and Shannon Chaplin came on to replace the injured players which made the teams very even. However, the changes failed to win any goals and the final score remained 2-2.
