Steyning hosted the last of three tournaments to decide who would win overall and who would represent our Chanctonbury Area in the Southern Area Finals later this year. St Peter's, Henfield were brilliant over the first two tournaments but only narrowly beating Steyning three, two, in the last game of the second meeting.
Everything started off quite slowly with a 4 nil win over Jolesfield with Zac Grantham scoring a hat trick and one from Grace Dorrington. In the half-time discussion I asked to slow down their passing to create better openings with more accurate passing. This produced a monumental 11-1 win, with Izabelle Thomas scoring six, Sophie Hibbert three and Patrick Ford the other two. So onto the final game against Henfield.
St Peter's with their top striker starting went into a two goal lead, both defensive errors, but Grace Dorrington pulled one back immediately. Henfield then scored another two in quick succession quickly answered by a great piece of play ending in Sophie Hibbert scoring our second. Momentum changed and Steyning poured on the pressure. Izabelle Thomas pulled another back, shortly followed by our fourth from Zac Grantham.
Seth Beresford-Theurer was intercepting everything in the centre role with our defence shutting out their attack completely. At the end shots just wouldn't go in meaning that the game finished in a four all draw. Our whole team put in an incredible performance. I have not mentioned Lilly Ashby, who worked tirelessly for the team and this bodes well for the future. In the end St Peter's won overall due to their strong play throughout and Steyning finished second, with Jolesfield third and Upper Beeding fourth.
