Victory in West Midlands Girls’ Tag League

Old Laurentians’ girls’ tag team, the Dragonesses, have notched up their first tournament win in the West Midlands Girls’ Tag league.

The League, that features ten teams from across the West Midlands, runs tournaments through the season.

Having come a creditable second in their home tournament, the girls aged eight to 17 were ready to take on the challenge of the Shipston tournament.

Great running off the ball was the key to a great performance as the girl beat the likes of Shipston and Kings Norton to set up a decider with league ‘heavy weights’ Bournville.

It was end to end stuff but great support play, swift ball handling and thinking ahead saw the OLs girls come back with a minute to go to triumph 6-5.

OLs Dragonesses tag team train at Fenley Field on Sundays from 10.30am, new members always welcome.
