P7 went to a tournament at Meggetland and did extremely well. This was the semi-finals of a bigger competition and our team had already done well to get through to this round. In their first game they won 1-0. In the second game they drew 1-1. In the third game they drew 2-2. They had everything to play for in the fourth game but unfortunately they lost 3-1 then they lost their last game 5-2. Even though they didn’t get through to the final the team still did really well and tried their very best.They will be playing in another tournament later on in the year which they will hopefully have a good chance of winning.
