Bligh Park FC U13’s Girls Secure Thrilling Victory in Grand Final Clash

Aug 30, 2023

The sun was out and the atmosphere at Jamison Park was electric as the Bligh Park FC U13’s Girls took to the field for their Grand Final showdown against the Blue Mountains squad. With a strong line up of supporters, the sideline was a sea of colourful banners, boisterous cheers, and palpable excitement, creating an unforgettable backdrop for a thrilling match.

The game began with a surge from the Blue Mountains team, managing to secure an early goal that sent a hush through the Bligh Park supporters. However, this initial setback only ignited the determination of the Bligh Park FC girls. They quickly rallied, showing remarkable resilience as Eden found the back of the net in response, levelling the score. The swift retaliation set the tone for a fierce contest that kept both teams on their toes.

Emily’s strong defense earned her Player of the Match.

As the first half drew to a close, the score remained at 1-1. But the Bligh Park FC U13’s Girls were far from complacent. Known for thriving under pressure, they headed into the second half with determination and a hunger for victory. 

The second half saw a flurry of action, with both teams missing a few opportunities as they made valiant efforts to break the deadlock. As the clock ticked down, the tension in the air, and it seemed that the match could be decided by the smallest of margins.

In a heart-stopping sequence of events, with just 45 seconds left on the clock, it was Evie who set the stage for a triumphant finale. A perfectly timed pass set up Eden for a crucial shot. Although the kick lacked a bit of power, it was Lily who seized the moment, guiding the ball into the net with a well-placed nudge. The crowd erupted in cheers as Bligh Park FC took the lead with a mere 30 seconds to spare.

The hard fought victory ended in excitement and tears of joy  from players, the coach, manager and spectators.

A notable mention must be made of Emily, who guarded the Bligh Park FC goal with remarkable skill throughout the match, earning her the title of Player of the Match. Special recognition also goes to the backs, Taylor and Annalyse, for their consistently brilliant defense that thwarted numerous attacks. Piper, too, deserves accolades for a crucial intervention that prevented what could have been the equalising goal, ensuring that the victory was secured.

This Grand Final victory will undoubtedly be one to remember. Congratulations girls!
