Three Queenswood Footballers in Regional U18 Finals
Monday 13 March 2017
Sisters Nikita Bedi (Year 11) and Shania Bedi (Year 13), along with Wendi Akaraiwe (Year 13), were selected to play for the Independent Schools FA (ISFA) South Central U18 Girls team at the Future Elite Regional Championships on Sunday 12 March. The tournament was held at Harrow School, where the girls faced teams from the South East, Midlands and the South West.
Despite losing their first game narrowly 2-1 to the South West, the Queenswood trio were all involved in the 2-1 victory over the Midlands, and the 3-1 win against the South East, with Nikita even scoring a volley from a corner in the last game, despite playing in defence all day. Shania created chances from the left wing and was confident taking on players and delivering balls into the box. Wendi played as a centre back, and cleared the ball tirelessly from defence. The girls narrowly missed out on the top spot, taking home second place with their team.
