Hat-Trick of Success at IAPS Regional Football Finals
King’s Hall football teams enjoyed a hat-trick of success at the IAPS Regional Finals at King’s College last week.
The under 11 girls’ seven-a-side team won the Plate Competition, while the under 13 girls’ and the under 13 boys’ eight-a-side teams both finished in second place and are now through to the National Finals.
The King's Hall under 11 girls drew three of their four matches to end fourth in their pool, and in the Plate they triumphed over Red Maids 1-0 before beating Wolverhampton Grammar School in the final 1-0.
The under 13 girls beat Danes Hill 2-1, drew with Millfield 1-1, but lost 2-0 to overall winners Dumpton, ending second in their group and qualifying for the ISFA finals that will be taking place next year.
The under 13 boys finished second in the table, beating Stroud and Port Regis, and drawing their remaining three matches against Millfield Prep, St Peters and Wycliffe College.
In their five games King’s Hall only conceded one goal thanks to the heroics of their ‘keeper Declan Tuohy, who pulled off some fantastic saves, while up front Michele Chianditti found the net three times.
Alistair Halls, who took up his post as Director of Sport at King’s Hall at the start of this term, said: “Football is now well-established at King’s Hall thanks to the work that Chris Heayns [Director of Football] continues to undertake. It was great to see both our girls’ and boys’ teams doing so well at the IAPS Regional Finals last week – they all work hard and deserve their success.”
