Maidstone Schools Football Finals 2024

Mr Shingleton sent this report: 

On Thursday, 9 May football teams from Years 8, 9 and 10 took part in the Maidstone Schools Football Finals at the Gallagher Stadium. It was a beautiful summerlike evening with many staff, parents and students attending the event to support our teams. Invicta were out in full force as the only school with all teams qualifying for the finals, a great feat in itself. 

Year 8: Report by Mr Homes:

Going into the tournament the Year 8 girls were all optimistic. In the first game against Maplesden it was very tight until Evie in 8V broke the deadlock towards the half way point. With incredibly solid defending and relentless attacks Invicta went on to win 2-0. This took them to the final against MGGS, and despite relentless attacks from Invicta, they were unable to beat the keeper and unfortunately lost 1-0 after conceding from a free kick. They were unfortunate, but all gave everything they had and did incredibly well to finish second. 

Year 9: Report by Mr Sealy:

Mirroring the scorching conditions around them, the Year 9 team kicked off their bid for the final with a blazing performance; sweeping aside a very good SST side 2-0 with 2 superb goals from Chidi in 8V. Throughout their semi-final the girls were organised and persistent with their work rate, applying constant pressure and ensuring that SST had little time on the ball to get themselves together.  

Gifted a longer break before the final thanks to the other semi final running into extra time, the Year 9 girls regrouped and started the final itself in an energetic manner, pressing the opposition throughout like a top attacking Premier League side. Despite a number of fantastic opportunities (including a heart-stopping Invicta shot being pushed against the post) the girls couldn’t quite find a way through and the game ended goalless after normal time and extra-time. In the great tradition of British penalty shootout heartbreak, Invicta couldn’t quite get over the line but the girls can be incredibly proud of the effort, resiliency and unity they demonstrated throughout both games and ended up deserved silver medallists.

Year 10: Report by Mr Homes:

The Year 10s went into the tournament as one of the strongest teams Invicta has to offer, and they displayed this in the semi-final against Cornwallis. They displayed their class in the way they passed and created opportunities, however they couldn’t produce a final product and even though they didn’t concede a shot all game it finished 0-0 taking it to penalties. Regrettably this did not go Invicta’s way. This meant a third place play off against SST where Jasmine in 10S found her shooting boots and scored both goals in a 2-0 victory. After the loss in the first round, Invicta put in an amazing effort not to let their heads drop leading them to round off the night with a victory.

Well done to all who took part and made Invicta proud. All teams showed excellent resilience and great sportsmanship on what was a very successful evening. We look forward to the Year 7 finals in two weeks time!
