The U8B team started off the netball match with great enthusiasm despite the drop in temperature which was accompanied by extremely cold hands!
Jennifer intercepted many of the Hurst balls throughout the game, and proved a valuable player continuously running up and down the court as centre. The girls scored 2 goals in the first quarter, both by Paige and movement in the D was extremely vital. Zara moved from WD to GD in the second quarter and played a vital role in carrying the ball from our defensive side into an attacking position. Great movement between Jemima and Sophie who distributed the ball as WA and GA in and around the D. Our star Talia, was pulled up to play for the A team at half time and was sorely missed.
At half time the score was 2-1 to Copthorne, however in the last quarter Hurst managed to sneak in one more goal. The girls played an encouraging game of netball and I am extremely proud of their team camaraderie! Great job girls!
