On Monday 30th September the U13 girls football team opened their season with a National Cup tie against Durrington. Hove Park started brightly, having most of the possession, and went 1-0 up in the 20th minute with a fantastic goal from Sophia. The lead didn’t last long and Durrington were able to equalise just before half time. The second half saw Durrington turn up the heat with a magnificent one woman show from their Centre Attacking Midfielder (CAM). Unfortunately, the Hove Park girls could not contain her and the game finished 4-1 to the visitors. Well done to all the team for putting up a fight until the final whistle.
