U12s Girls finish second in the York RI gala
Another week, another gala, another set of magnificent performances, another final penalty shoot out heartbreak. In scorching heat the two Kirk Deighton Rangers Girls U12s teams did the club proud again at the York RI gala. The Dragons reached the Plate semi final and were unlucky to lose conceding in the last 10 seconds of extra time. The Rangers remained undefeated throughout the 9 game tournament only conceding one goal. That the girls played every minute of every match because we had no substitute was amazing given the stifling heat. Having won their semi final on penalties the girls found extra energy from somewhere and were the dominant team in the final but couldn't find a way through even after extra time. They were the width of the crossbar from completing a deserved victory but unfortunately they lost the penalty shoot out 4-3. It was their second final penalty shootout heartbreak in a week having lost in Selby the weekend before.
Once again the passion, team camaraderie and performances from both KDR JFC girls teams in baking conditions was exceptional.
