This week the U8s took on BHHS at netball. Due to the cold weather, we played in the sports hall which was good! This week the team was captained by Isabella White and Sophia Vieira. They got us off to a good start and Copthorne had the first centre pass.
The girls passed well down the court and had lots of good play around the circle. Emily Goodfellow was quick to find space and get free for the ball, linking well with Emma Nathaniel and Sophia Vieira to get the ball to the shooters. The first goal was scored by Annabel Preen! The girls also defended well with Sheen Dullo being strong and Isabella White and Emma Nathaniel making some good interceptions. The score at half time was 1-0 to Copthorne.
During the second half the girls continued to play well and fight for the ball. The defence stayed tight on their players and the attack were linking the ball well. After a few near misses on goal Copthorne scored again bringing the final score to 2-0!
A great effort today girls and a well deserved win.
My player of the match was Annabel Preen!
Thank you to all the supporters.
