Girls' Football: Cheam U12 v Nonsuch
On Thursday 9th March a beautiful day on the astroturf at Nonsuch Girls School saw Cheam’s U12s get off to a flying start. Eshal Tariq worked hard as left back assisting Louisa Wright and Lola Proctor to form a strong defence as Nonsuch had several attempts on target but Brooke Harding, on her toes, kept the ball out.
Some great passing from Mollie Corrigan to Holly Bahiti on the right wing created chances for our forwards Tiarni Frost and Jasmine Durham with some dangerous moments for the opposition. There were some tense moments at either end throughout the first half with the feeling that a goal was imminent! Cheam’s defence pushed Louisa up, passing to Ellie Sturton with a great run forward and then Roxie Fowler just outside the box pounded the ball over the line, 1-0 Cheam.
The second half saw some exciting football with excellent tackles from Molly Baker and Kacey Millen and a first appearance for Mia Lochhead on the right wing. Unfortunately, Nonsuch created a chance from nowhere and scored towards the end of the game; it was to be a 1-1 draw.
