Langho U15 Girls at Barrowford – Langho Girls 1st Ever Tournament Win

On 4th June 17 the Langho U15 Girls welcomed a new player Issy and a team of 9 played their first summer tournament (6-a-side) hosted by Barrowford Celtic.  With the return of the mascot FlanghLangho U15 girls Barrowford Tournament team Flanghoo (a pink flamingo) and parents cosily entrenched in Tony’s gazebo, the weather blowing wet and dry the girls launched their campaign against Barrowford.  A superb cross from Annie saw Misty volley in the first goal chuffed there were no concerns of off-side!  A shot from a tight angle parried by their keeper left her marooned on the floor and allowed Misty to almost casually make it 2-0.  After a few substitutions this was the way it finished.  Next up were Fillies, a very physical side so Langho put out a strong team.  With a winning goal from Amelia, Langho brilliantly made it 2 from 2.  Dynamo Rangers were next up and Langho drew a tough game 0-0 as the squad continued to rotate.  The girls took an early lead against Academy Juniors with a goal for Iola only to be pegged back 1-1 after Katie was pulled down leaving no defence.  The girls topped the group with 11 points after a commanding performance against the other Barrowford side, although Iola unfortunately fell badly and finished up with her arm in a splint (we wish her a rapid recovery).  With Hazel brought on the girls booked their place in the cup final against…. Fillies, with Dynamo beating Academy to secure 3rd place on penalties.

The cup final was another physical affair but the girls created more chances, Bella and Katie tackled determinedly and Hazel was typically very solid in the net. The opposition seemed to be playing for penalties and it finished 0-0.  Amelia smashed home her penalty and they made it 1-1.  Annie casually wandered up and buried hers in the left hand corner too.  After a miss from Fillies, Misty bravely converted hers even though the keeper got her hands on it and the tournament was all over.  Langho Girls first ever tournament win and well deserved!  A brilliant team effort from Hazel, Issy, Iola, Katie, Amalia, Annie, Amber, Misty and Rebecca with the usual superb team spirit shining through.
