1-0 up at half time, a dream start for the U15 football team against Sir John Lawes in the District Cup.
A fantastic team effort, captained by Colena Padmore-Wood, saw outstanding shots from Guise Carnevale and great link up play between Colena and Lily Lardner giving SJL something to worry about. The Loreto defence was solid; a calm and composed Vanessa Cipolla led from the goal and made some important saves. Most improved player was Alessia Risoli, playing at right back with confidence and commitment.
The match finished 1-1 and went straight to penalties with the winning team progressing to the next round. SJL clinched the win with two goals and two outstanding saves, one by their keeper and one from the cross bar!
Well done to all involved; the U15 Loreto team did the school proud and their conduct on and off the pitch was outstanding.
A huge well done and thank you must go to Mia Jimenez who refereed the match.
