Bedminster Down School girls win Wespart Winter School Games – 2015

Girls football team winners

The top 4 girls under 15 teams from each of Bristol, Baines, South Gloucestershire and Somerset went to Filton Wise Campus (home of Bristol Ladies Academy) to battle it out for the champion spot.
The School Games are sponsored by Sainsbury’s and some of the values are respect, courage and determination, our girls showed these in abundance.

With great team spirit and clean sheets from Shauna the keeper and some brilliant passing and goal scoring we made it all the way to the final without conceding a goal.

Our opposition in the final were Worle Secondary School, it was a good close game for the first half, Shauna Hanam made a hero’s save to keep us in the game, and unfortunately this left her with an injury so she was replaced by Brianna Hepper. Super sub Rhianna Ben-Carew came on up front and slotted home 2 well deserved goals to crown Bedminster Down champions. Mrs Liddell PE teacher and team manager said “I’m very proud of you girls, especially at the friendship and concerned they showed for Shauna – Well done”
Team; Shauna Hanam, Brianna Hepper, Beth Phillips, Emma Torrington, Abbie Wilkins, Lauren Phillips, Ruby Dore, Lilly Farr, Grace Phillips and Rhianna Ben-Carew
