Girls Football Match

On Tuesday 21st November, The Grove Academy played Sacred Heart School at home in the Watford and Hertsmere Schools Sports Partnership girls competition.

The match got underway with both teams playing some great football. Sacred Heart took the lead midway through the first half with The Grove continuing to attack which resulted in a well deserved equalizer making the score 1-1 at halftime.

The second half started with The Grove dominating play with good attacking. The Grove were awarded a corner which was taken with the ball curling in to the goal making the score 2-1 to The Grove. This was followed closely by another well-deserved goal to make the score 3-1 to The Grove. Sacred Heart came back strong playing some lovely football scoring a second goal. Going in to the final minutes Sacred Heart got through our defence, and despite three outstanding saves by our goalkeeper, Sacred Heart got the ball in to the box and scored the equalizer making the final score 3-3.

Well done to The Grove Academy team who played some fantastic football and showed great teamwork. Thank you to Sacred Heart team for such an exciting game!
