Our last netball match of the term and another super win for the U8A team.
The girls were excited to play against Hurst, even more so when they found out that Miss Jones would be there and umpiring!
The first quarter started well and it wasn’t long before we had chances to score. However, Biba and Ella had to work extremely hard, as the Hurst defenders stuck to them like glue! A few chances went begging and we only managed to score 1 goal in the first quarter. This was partly due to the fact that the Hurst’s GD played some outstanding netball, reading and intercepting the ball really well, and breaking down a lot of our attacking play.
A completely different second quarter saw the girls settle very quickly and we actually won the game during this period. Biba was on fire, once again under the post, and from distance; scoring 5 goals in quick succession with some lovely unselfish passes from Ella who also scored a goal putting the game out of Hurst’s reach at half-time 6-0.
Harley, Layla and Ffion linked well in the centre of the court and Daisy had another good game at GD. Victoria showed a lot of improvement on court and Isobel supported well in all the different positions she played.
Well done girls, and a huge thank you to our lovely supporters. MJ
Biba (Capt) (5), Ella (1), Daisy (1), Layla, Victoria, Ffion, Isobel & Harley
