U14 Girls Hockey
On Monday 6th December, our U14 hockey team were in action. We travelled the short distance to Cardiff Metropolitan University to play in our U14 Welsh Cup group. We had drawn Llanishen and Bro Morgannwg.
The girls have been committed to training weekly, every Wednesday on our new school MUGA.
The girls started well and demonstrated they fully understood our 4,4,2 formation. They have a great team ethic and this was evident with their commitment in attack with keeping possession of the ball but also in defence when marking.
The final scores were:Fitzalan - 0
Llanishen - 2
Fitzalan - 0
Bro Morgannwg - 6
An excellent first performance for the team on a full-size pitch.

Year 9 & 10 Netball
Year 9 & 10 girls played against Year 9, 10 & 11 from MIHS. Although, some of the girls seemed somewhat uncomfortable with the thought of playing a year group or two higher than them, this did not stop them! The level of play amongst the girls was exceptional and at a very high standard.
Year 9 team and come away with a fantastic score of 4-1 to Fitzalan.
The year 10 girls came away with an outstanding score of 10-2 to Fitzalan.
Year 7 & 8 Netball
Year 7 & 8 played another successful game of netball last night. Both year groups played against Year 7 & 8 at Mary Immaculate High School. After several weeks of training the girls won both matches.
Year 8 came away 10-1 victory while Year 7 won 4-0.
Year 8, 9 & 10 Girls Football
The girls were in action against Llantwit iin the Welsh Cup. They have got off to a great start in the cup, winning this game 5 - 1.
We have had a few disappointments in games being cancelled for the Welsh cup which has meant we are through to the semi-final of the Cardiff region of the cup with a game next Friday (10th).
The girls also had a game this week on Monday against Pencodtre, winning 10 - 1.
