U8 Netball v Fonthill Lodge – Won 8-0

I heard a little voice say, look at the size of the goals! Alys and Hannah were concerned but with a bit of reassurance the match began. Copthorne started strongly with Charlotte and Loren playing well. After the 1st quarter it was 1-0. The ball was changed on my request as I felt our ball would be better to play with, slightly heavier. This had proven to be true for both teams better ball control was being played. Alys was on top form with finding another goal before the end of the 2nd quarter. With a quick word in their ears, it would be easier for themselves to play the longer balls and 3 passes the ball will reach the goal end. All players were determined to play the last 8 minutes with flair. Sub was made Holly came on for Hannah. Straight into the game she scored an amazing goal from underneath the post. Keeping the game flowing it was important to allow Tavistock to try and get a goal, but several chances was given but they just couldn’t do it. The final few minutes was not wasted on our part, all 7 players were demonstrating how their individual ability was being shown. Beautiful passes up the court were being played, an excellent team performance! Don’t forget the goal-post were high, so to score 8 goals I dread to think how many would of been scored with a lower post. Players of the Match go to GA Alys Cummins and WA Emily Ford – Well done!
