Following on from a very successful U10s tournament this morning, we had the U12s. Overall today, in both the U10s and U12s, we 62 girls playing futsal, most for the very first time!

Game 1 – Boro Rangers U12s – 3 – Fulford U12s – 0

Game 2 – Bootham Futsal Club U12s – 3 – York Railway Institute U12s – 0

Bootham got off to the perfect start when a corner from Ruby was touched home by Sophie. Bethany in goal, making her futsal debut, made brave save before Clare ran through and finished smartly. Bootham wrapped up the game off with a tremendous strike from Katie J in the dying seconds. Great first ever game for Lucy, who battled really well.

Game 3 – York Railway Institute U12s – 0 – Fulford U12s – 1

Game 4 – Bootham Futsal Club U12s – 0 – Boro Rangers U12s – 4

The first goal of this game was going to be vital and Boro Rangers scored it with the help of the post. Bootham came roaring back but they couldn’t force home chances from Katie H, Emma and Orla. These missed chances came back to haunt Bootham as Boro scored 2 more quick goals. Ruby and Mila did well in defence but couldn’t stop the final goal for Boro Rangers.

Game 6 – Bootham Futsal Club U12s –1 – Fulford U12s – 1

In the last game of the day Fulford started the brightest and took a well deserved lead. Paige kept Bootham in early on with some great saves. Bootham came storming back but chances from Katie J, Katie H and Ruby were all missed. Mila and Lucy defended brilliantly and Clare nearly scored with a long range shot. With only 5 seconds on the clock, Emma tapped home from close range to grab a well deserved draw for Bootham.
