The Angus Schools Senior Girls football festival was played at the Martin Park, Kirriemuir on Monday 19th September with Montrose High School, Forfar Academy, Brechin High School, Monifieth High School and Webster’s High School all competing for the Bank Of Scotland cup.
The competition was played in a league format with each team playing four games.
Webster’s girls’ first game was against Brechin High and it turned out to be an entertaining encounter which finished with a rather flattering 4 - 0 victory for the Webster’s girls. Cheryl Kilcoyne (2), Emily Rennie and Katie Dickson getting on the score sheet.
In their second game Montrose Academy proved to be tougher opponents but eventually the Webster’s girls took control of the game and secured victory through goals from Kilcoyne and Dickson.
Local rivals Forfar Academy were next up and as always the game was played in a competitive but friendly manner. In the later stages of the game Kilcoyne scored the goal of the tournament after terrific interplay from Jenna Dickson, Amy Doyle which saw Kilcoyne blast home from 25 yards. Webster’s doubled their lead after good work from Ella Peters left Kilcoyne to strike home from 15 yards.
In their last game the Webster’s girls played their best football of the day and cruised to a 4 - 0 victory with goals from Doyle (2), Katie Dickson and Peters.
This was a very positive performance from the Webster’s girls which enabled them to win the trophy for the 3rd consecutive time.
All the Webster’s High girls performed to a high standard. The defence of Dana Soutar, Mhairi Duncan, Lydia McKenzie, Genna Dickson and Meganne Penman always looked secure and managed to play the entire tournament without conceding any goals.
The midfield of Emily Rennie, Amy Doyle, Katie Dickson and Isla Miller played some superb football and were always competitive.
Forwards Ella Peters and Cheryl kilcoyne both worked extremely hard and caused all sorts of problems for the oppositions defences.
All of the Webster’s girls performed extremely well but best on the day were Cheryl Kilcoyne, Amy Doyle and Isla Millar.
