U8 Netball v St Aubyns & Fonthill Lodge
This week the girls travelled down to St Aubyns to play a triangle match with Fonthill Lodge. Copthorne took on Fonthill first playing against a mixture of U9s and U10s.
The girls got off to a slow start and were very evenly matched against their opposition. The first half finished at an exciting 0-0. During the second half the girls grew in confidence, getting into good space and passing well. The first goal of the second half was scored by Alice Renshaw with some good linking play from Amalia Finnegan and Hermione Ashbee. After this first goal the girls were even more determined and enthusiastic to score a second. They continued to play well in the second half with Amber Buggins and Amalia making some lovely interceptions and winning back the ball. The final score was 4-2 to Copthorne with
Yelena Finnegan scoring a vital goal in the last few minutes. This was a fantastic game to watch girls, well done!
In the second game Copthorne took on St Aubyns mixed U8/9 team. The girls switched around positions in this game and found themselves battling with a strong wind. At the end of the first half the score was level at 0-0. The girls were once again determined to win and fought for every loose ball. This match saw some good linking play around the circle from Amalia and Yelena and good support from Amber, Hermione and Elise Fry. The game ended 1-0 to Copthorne with a goal from Amalia.
Thank you to all the girls who played extremely well and supported and encouraged their team. Also a big thank you to the supporters who were cheering on the team from the side line. Another set of fantastic results girl. Well Done!! HC
