Hacton 7-0 St Mary's

Hacton girls' football team recorded their first win of the 2013-14 season with a decisive victory over St Mary's. After a difficult first game defeat to Upminster, the Hacton girls listened carefully to the advice of their coach, Mr Pinkham, during training on Tuesday. The result was a game executed to perfection in front of a bumper home crowd. Ellie gave Hacton an early lead with a determined finish. Captain Harlie struck the second before midfield enforcer Katie drilled home a third, adding a fourth just before half time to give Hacton a deserved lead.

The girls did not rest on their laurels as they started the second half with as much energy as the first. Livi capped a fine run with her first goal and, not to be outdone, sister Sian cooly despatched a sixth for the supercharged team. Harlie then notched up her second of the game; a fitting end to the match as the whistle blew with the final score seven nil to Hacton. The win was a great way to bounce back from last week's defeat and our triumphant team can look forward to their next game with renewed confidence. Outstanding performances across the pitch made choosing girl of the game difficult. However, captain Harlie took the honour for a determined and enthusiastic display. 

Congratulations to the Hacton girls for a match to be proud of!
