Unity event hailed a huge success

Match secretary Tanika White has dubbed last weekend’s Unity Tournament at Bernard Park as a smashing success.

Netts White claimed the Under-12 title while Bluebird Young ‘uns were the top team in the Under-15 division.

But according to White the tournament was about much more than winning.

“Saturday’s Unity Tournament was about fitness, fun and building friendships,” she said. “It was a wonderful sight to see so many young ladies playing their hearts out and having fun.

“Congratulations to all coaches as your young ladies were respectful, talented and did you all proud showcasing their ability that you so generously have helped instil.”

The Under-12 tournament involved seven teams that played at least two matches.

Netts White were declared the winners after recording victories against Cougar Cubs and Lady Rams.

Lady Rams finished second while Baby Bluebirds rounded off the top three teams.

“These games were played with a lot of heart, with many of the games being won with only one or two goal difference,” White said.

Bluebird Young’ uns also went unbeaten en route to the Under-15 title after prevailing against Nu-Art, Lady Rams, Netts Green and Netts White in their four matches.

The Under-15 tournament involved five teams that played each other once.

“These games were played well, seeing some upsets and some predictable victories,” White said.

Senior Winter League action resumes on Saturday with the ten-team division to be divided into two groups.

The top five teams at the half-way stage of the season will play each other in the ‘A’ division while the remaining teams will play in the ‘B’ division.
