For some people it was freezing but for us the blood was rushing through us because we were pumped up for our final. Everyone in the dressing room was nervous but our coaches (Ms.O’Neill and Ms.Corr) gave us a great prep talk to calm us down. We then jogged onto the pitch with great pride and fire in our stomachs. We warmed up and then our brave captain (Sinead) went in for the coin toss. In the first half we were playing against the wind. The referee blew his whistle and the match began. Bennekerry were out for blood since they lost the match against us the week before but we had the upper hand. We were a goal and a point up when Bennekerry got their first goal against us. We got 2 more outstanding goals and that put us in the lead. The referee blew his whistle 3 times and the first half was over. Everyone jogged in and huddled up for the team talk.
After an amazing team talk from our coaches we were pumped up for the second half. The referee blew his whistle and we ran back to our positions on the pitch. Bennekerry came back on fire but we blew it out with our amazing football skills. In the middle of the second half, Sinead bumped heads with a Bennekerry girl but our team leader shook it off.
The whistle finally blew three more times and we had won our final! We ran onto the sideline, screaming and shouting. The atmosphere was impeccable. Our team captain (Sinead) was presented with the shield and made a fantastic speech. We all ran into the dressing room and started screaming “CHAMPIONS!!”. There were big smiles on our faces and we all got into our cars cheering and shouting. It was amazing!
