The girls were full of energy today due to the lovely sunny weather and knowing that this was their last match of the season! In the first quarter Copthorne were slow to get started and there passes were sloppy however some good goals were scored by Alys and Hannah resulting in the girls being 3-0 up at the end of the first quarter although Tavistock were matching Copthorne with their possession. In the second quarter Copthorne really picked their game up and there was some great netball played by all with some fabulous interceptions both in defence and midcourt and some further great goals from Holly and Hannah.
Lots of changes were made in the last two quarters with everyone playing versatility picked at random. Everyone tried particularly hard and put in 100% effort with Elizabeth scoring a great goal which was unfortunately disallowed by the other umpire. As a result of the girl’s superb effort and enthusiasm today throughout the match the girls won the match 9-2! Well done girls another well deserved win and good match!
Thank you to all the girls who have worked extremely hard this season both in training and matches, as it has paid off as they have had a fantastic netball season! I wish them all the best for next year; they are definitely a team to look out for in the future!!
Thank you also to all the supporters who continuously come and support the girls, it all helps and I hope to see you in the summer term for rounders! TC
