Success for Settle

Cumbrian School lift Year 11 Girls crown.

Castleford Academy Girls 12 v 18 Settle College Girls

The first game saw Castleford Academy girls take on Settle College.

After almost a full half of no points Jasmine bell found the breakthrough for Castleford Academy right on half-time, Taylor Loveday successful with the conversion.

The second half saw a strong start from Settle College and they found a quick response through Jules Thompson, with Olivia Akrigg slotting the conversion.

However, Academy were quick to restore their lead through Abbey Sharpe crossing over and Loveday made no mistake with the conversion.

With time ticking down Settle needed a quick response and they got their rewards through a strong effort from Georgia Holgate, once again Akrigg held her nerve and kicked the goal to level the scores with twelve each.

Going into the last five minutes Settle began to apply the pressure and seemed to try and capitalise on a tired Academy.

With very little time left on the clock Settle tested their arm and sent the ball wide in which they found Emma Kayley who finished well near the corner.

Akrigg once again held her nerve to make it three out of three and ensure Settle were triumphant.

Player-of-the-Match: Katie Innes (Castleford Academy)
