Kinja close to claiming the crown at Kings Langley
PUBLISHED: 16:30 11 July 2012
Kinja FC’s under-11 girls’ team recorded three wins in a row to reach the final of the Kings Langley tournament on Sunday.
The girls, who train at the Ark Academy, Wembley, started off with a 0-0 draw against Denham but found their shooting boots in the second match, when they beat Watford 2-0.
Nicola Moore, who finished off two superb team moves to secure victory, went one better in Kinja’s third game as she hit a hat-trick against Garston B, with Nadine Hibbert’s lob rounding off a 4-0 win.
Superb defending from Mia Barry, Shannae Campbell and Regan Graver, along with goalkeeper Deja Campbell, ensured that Kinja finished with a second successive clean sheet.
A third followed in what proved to be a tough semi-final against Enfield Rangers, but Hibbert converted Graver’s cross from close range to break the deadlock and Wiktoria Czarny-Bojanowicz’s pass set up Barry for a 15-yard screamer to make it 2-0.
However, the final proved to be a step too far for Kinja as they went down to three first-half goals against Garston A, and had to settle for the runners-up spot.
