U9 ‘B’ Netball v Great Walstead

21st October 2016

This week the nine players of the U9B team travelled to Great Walstead to play their Netball match. The squad played very competitively winning 10 – 2 and having over 75% of the play during the game.

The girls got off to a good start with Gabriella scoring two good goals. The second quarter was just as successful with a further two goals this time scored by Tayla and Belle. The third and fourth quarter saw the girls consolidate their lead and only allowed Great Walstead to get the ball in their circle on a few occasions.

The team played on a rolling subs basis and none of the girls complained if they had to go off for a quarter or change positions. A true team spirit was shown!

The defence of Katie, Amelia and Mona stayed solid and they intercepted most of their opponent’s passes before they reached any scoring opportunities. The central players, Lowenna, Amelie and Emilia, really played well and dominated their areas showing great determination.

Great Walstead chose Lowenna as the Copthorne Player of the Match which everyone felt was a good decision – although several of the Copthorne players could have been chosen this time.

Well done girls and as both umpires agreed it was a very good match, played in a very sporting way.
