Badu Sports girls handball side topped their group by beating Richmond (6-0), Wandsworth (9-0) and Camden (2-0), before cruising through to the finals at the Copper Box Arena.
The girls’ brushed off Newham in the quarter-finals, before defeating previous champions Barking and Dagenham 4-2 in a thrilling end-to-end semi-final to make the final, where they slipped to an unfortunate 3-0 defeat to Ealing.
Coach Yessica stated :-“I’m really proud of our girls, we have three year 11’s and the rest of them are year nine and year eight’s, so we have got a younger squad this year, we didn’t expect them to get this far, we just thought we’d come for the experience and then the following year look to win! We continue to aim high.
Mr Badu was delighted in how the girls performed and is feeling equally positive that the girls will win next year.
The girls performance throughout the tournament was amazing and have showed the talent to go on and win the tournament in the future. The girls were a great testament to the hard but fun training sessions, which was showcased for all to see during the tournament. Well done girls and hopefully 2018 is our year!
