After only 2 netball sessions the U12 & U13 girls were put through their paces today. With the 1st VII team not set in stone, positions were up for grabs!
The 1st VII that played against Hurst today were a good combination. In the first quarter we matched Hurst goal for goal and ended the quarter only 1 goal behind at 4-5.
However, the second quarter was a different story and the Hurst shooters found their form; with their GA giving Karina a really hard time. They pulled away scoring a further 7 goals to our 1.
A few positional changes in the third quarter and we steadied the ship a bit, but Hurst had punished us enough in the previous quarter to put the match out of our reach.
However, in true Copthorne style the girls fought hard and we managed to win the 4th quarter 4-3 and ended the match strongly. We saw good performances from Micki (Capt) GK/GD, Karina at GD and Alys at GA, but my player of the match goes to Harriet Pratt in the centre position. She ran her socks off today and made some excellent interceptions.
Congratulations to all the team for keeping their heads up and fighting until the end, and thank you to our supporters. MJ
Team: Micki (Capt), Prisha, Chloe, Harriet, Alys, Liliana, Karina & Tori
