U8A Netball v Ardingly

11th March 2016

U8 NetballWon 15-0

Ella was our captain for the final game of the netball term. Having patiently watched the U8Bs play and win, the girls were ready. We were hoping for a more challenging game today but it wasn’t to be. The U8s were just too fast and too good for their opposition! Ella and Biba were both on target again and scored 4 goals apiece in the first half. With Ella gaining in confidence scoring 2 from distance and Biba intercepting a pass in the ‘D’ to then score a great goal herself. Our link play from Daisy through to Ffion, Harley and Layla was excellent, so fast and accurate it left the Ardingly girls standing. Biba’s movement off the ball today was also great! Harley intercepted any loose passes and Layla was available for the quick transition down court. At half-time the score was 8-0; so changes were made!

Ffion and Isobel came into the attacking circle and showed that they are pretty good at shooting too with Ffion scoring 4 and Isobel 1. Victoria challenged well for the ball and Danni also marked her player closely. The Ardingly girls didn’t get into their attacking circle at all! In the final quarter both Daisy and Harley added to the final score with a goal each to end the game 15-0! Congratulations girls, an amazing performance and a truly amazing term from you all. You have all worked very hard on your netball skills and your teamwork today was great! Huge thanks to our wonderful, loyal supporters and well done to Ella who was voted Girl of the Game.

A fabulous way to end an unbeaten season of netball for this very talented group of girls, it has been an absolute pleasure to coach them. The future looks very rosy indeed! MJ
