The female team from SPRCs had to score five goals in their last match in order to qualify, since CCRC had previously beat NHSDA girls 4 -0. NHSDA team did not prove to be a hurdle for the SPRCs girls who not only scored the needed goals to qualify, but got an extra one just to brag. SPRCs girls qualified for the District Finals, leaving CCRC and the NHSDA girls out of the running.Primary School Football Tournament-1
