The girls’ football team kicked off the new season with an emphatic 0-4 away win vs Hayes primary!
The team, unperturbed by the pouring rain, got off to the best start with Grace putting LFA ahead within 5 minutes with a close range finish. Betsy chased the ball down from the Hayes defence, to tap in goal number two for the visitors and her first goal in La Fontaine colours. Hayes, with a rare opportunity, came close to halving the deficit with a strike hitting the post. Just before the close of the first half, Grace doubled her tally with a fine strike, leaving the Hayes goalkeeper with no chance.
As the rain got heavier, the girls had to dig deep to find goal number 4 and it came from debutant Florence, who struck from distance and the ball taking a deflection on its way into the back of the net.
Well done to the team! A well-deserved victory!
