The U11 Girls 7v7 Independent Schools continued at pace on Monday with 6 teams battling it out in the South Central Qualifier at St Aubyn’s School in Woodford Green, Essex. Teams from St Aubyn’s School, Forest School, St Edmunds Prep, The Oratory Prep and Woodford Green Prep competed for a place at the finals day at St Georges Park.

There was some excellent football on display from all teams form the very beginning, with St Edmunds Prep, St Aubyn’s and Woodford Green all making strong starts. With St Edmunds Prep winning their first three matches and St Aubyn’s their opening two, the pair then clashed in a tight battle to top the group at the half way stage with the game ending 0-0.  St Edmunds soon got back into their winning stride and won their last match to top the table with four wins and a draw from their five matches.

The race was now on for second with Forest School recovering from two narrow defeats in their opening two matches, with back to back victories in their next two. St Aubyn’s continued to push for second spot but could only draw their last two matches leaving the door open for Forest, who knew a 3-0 or greater victory in their last match would send them to St Georges Park, and they were up to challenge running out 4-0 winners. The Oratory Prep grabbed an excellent 3-0 win in their final game to take 4th place overall.

Final Standings:

1st  St Edmunds 13pts
2nd Forest 9pts
3rd  St Aubyn's 9pts
4th  The Oratory Prep 5pts
