07/05/14 - Burnley Schools Girls Football Final at Turf Moor

Result: St Leonard's 3-3 Wellfield (Lost 2-1 on penalties)

An amazing evening was had by all at The Burnley Schools Football Finals at Turf Moor. After battling their way through two qualification tournaments and 10 games it all came down to a showdown with our old foes Wellfield. Wellfield raced into a two goal lead and the girls were a little shell shocked at half time. They rallied fantastically in the 2nd half with Leah Tulloch and Ella Moorhouse striking in quick sucession to even things up. Levi Chadwick then slotted the 3rd goal away to complete an amzing turnaround. Wellfield scrambled in a late equaliser to see the game go to penalties. Unluckily the girls lost out 2-1 on penalties infront of a large crowd in the Bob Lord Stand. All the girls were fantastic and everyone in the school was so proud! WELL DONE GIRLS!
