U8B Netball v Great Walstead 

20th October 2017

I was so impressed with the girls behaviour this week they were all excellent representatives of Copthorne school for their first match away. Well done again girls, for another confident win, displaying skill, control and teamwork throughout. At times we fell back into standing still when asking for the ball, however these moments were short lived. We started off strong getting lots of interceptions and controlled shooting, giving us a strong lead by half time. Our last two quarters were even better as the team seemed to relax. They also gained confidence in spreading themselves across the court, allowing for a more fluid game. Although this was a great improvement from all crowding around the ball it meant that their passes had to travel a further distance, causing some inaccuracy, this is something we will be practicing in training. Huge congratulations to all U8 and a special mention to Amelie who was player of the match for her excellent shooting.
