Soccer girls take to the field and show good form

THE far north coast's best young female soccer players took to the field yesterday to compete for the Far North Coast division Bill Turner Trophy, at Kingscliff High.

The competition is for girls 15 years and under, runs Australia Wide and is a great source of up and coming female talent.

Kingscliff High's team is made up of a mix of senior and very young players, most of which have another two seasons in the division.

Kingscliff High teacher David Lloyd thinks they will only get stronger as a team.

"Our side's relatively young and don't get to play regular soccer like many other teams, but we have some talented players," Mr Lloyd said.

"Sophie Styles scored a cracking goal for us, a right foot strike from about 35ft out hitting the left crossbar and going in"

The Kingscliff girls did very well against an older, more physical team in Trinity College, holding their own for the majority of the match, only conceding several goals in the second half.

The final score was four goals to one, but with a few more games under their belts, the Kingscliff students will only get stronger.
