The Ilfracombe Academy Girls U14 football team were victorious in defeating Park School in a highly contested final for the title of North Devon Champions.
It was a game which required resilience, passion and endeavour in order to win! The team went down 2-0 early but kept their heads and fought back to 3-3, scoring their equalising goal on the full time whistle.
In extra time our girls showed superb tactical awareness and physical prowess and were rewarded with two more goals, to make the winning score 3-5 to The Ilfracombe Academy. The team now goes on to the Devon County Final on 22nd March.
Well done to Yazzy Proctor, Aleasha Chater, Connie Turner, Shae Miles, Grace Palmer, Lucy Reed, Lily Mills, Rudy Bucknall and Megan Palmer.
