Copthorne’s first twenty minute match was against Great Walstead. The girls were slow to begin with and were a little sloppy with their play but by the end of the first ten minutes Copthorne were a well deserved 2-0 up. In the second ten minutes of the match Copthorne picked their game up and there was some great play by all – especially Freya who read the play extremely well and intercepted some fantastic balls. The shooters Chloe and Prisha got their eye in and were just starting to warm up as we saw in the second match! The defenders Michaela and Katie were awesome and managed to hold Great Walstead off resulting in a 7-0 win!
Copthorne’s second match was against Skippers Hill. We got off to a good start scoring from the centre pass and then scoring consecutively from every centre pass whether it was their centre or not. Skippers Hill however did give Copthorne a bit of a fight but by the first ten minutes the girls were 6-0 up. In the second ten minutes of the match Copthorne really shone and there was some of the best netball played this season. The centre court players Freya, Tori, Harriet, Amanda and Emma did some fabulous court work with great interceptions and passing which were slotted in the net by Prisha and Chloe who were on absolute fire today and once they got their eye in there was no stopping them! Michaela and Katie were outstanding and dominant in defence as always resulting in a 15-0 win to Copthorne.
All in all there was some great netball played today by everyone with 21 goals scored from the two matches and 0 goals let in! Well done girls – you should be proud! TC
