Game 1: Northbury 6 St Vincent's 0

Game 3: Northbury 0 George Carey 1
Northbury girls put in a poor unfocused performance against hosts George Carey. A lapse of concentration from the Northbury defence allowed a shot which hit the post and deflected off Northbury GK Ajayi into the back of the net.
SEMI-FINAL: Northbury 2 St Josephs 1
Northbury bounced back to earn a spot in the final by some great work out wide by Elsey who crossed in to Ismaili to finish first time from close range. Elsey then doubled their lead, before St Josephs pulled one back after a defensive mix up between Ajayi and Maine.
FINAL: Northbury 2 George Carey 0
Northbury got revenge on George Carey by winning 2-0 in the final to be crowned champions. A long throw from captain Maine was turned into their own goal by the George Carey defence. Northbury, who were previously a bit shaky at the back turned in a great defensive display to shut George Carey out. Elsey then broke free down the left and smashed in at the near post to make it 2-0 to Northbury just before the final whistle.
Well done to all the Girls who took part and brought home the first Girls Football trophy of the year!!
