Primary: ESFA Danone Schools’ Cup for Girls

Easington Colliery county winners for second time

Posted by: allan

Seven schools participated in the County final of the ESFA Danone Schools’ Cup for Girls, which was held at Chester-le-Street Riverside.

The schools were drawn into two groups with the top team in each group playing off for the opportunity to represent DCSFA in the North Region round of the competition.

Easington Colliery Primary School and Durham Blue Coat CE Junior School topped their respective groups.

The match between the two schools was an entertaining affair. Blue Coat gained a comfortable lead but Easington fought back and took the game into extra time by levelling the scores with one minute remaining. In extra time both teams pressed for the winner but it was Easington who scored the important winning goal with 30 seconds to go.
