Sacred Heart of Mary Girls' School's Year 9 football team made it three wins from three to start the season with a 9-5 victory over Roding Valley High School. 

The Upminster-based school progresses into the next round of the George Cash Under-14 Girls Trophy competition with that win. 

Sacred Heart got off to a very slow start and found themselves 2-0 down within the first 10 minutes. 

Roding Valley had a number of top-level Tottenham and RTC Academy players, and a quick tactical change by Sacred Heart saw them 6-3 up by half-time before winning 9-5.

In the previous round, Sacred Heart had convincingly beaten Beauxhamps School 11-0.
