Copthorne lost the toss and the centre pass however this did not deter the U9’s and they turned the first centre pass over in their favour and scored from it. As the first quarter went on the U9’s picked up their pace and were starting to warm up with some great goals by Holly as a result. Although Ardingly were giving the girls some competition the girls took the lead 3-1 in the first quarter.
In the second quarter of the match the U9’s played some super netball , attacking well up court and the movement between the shooters, Alys and Hannah around the circle was great. The defence consisting of Elizabeth, Loren and Karina was extremely dominant allowing Ardingly no goals in this quarter.
In the third quarter the U9’S lost their momentum and their game dipped , allowing Ardingly the chance to step up their game. However in the fourth quarter the girls fought back against Ardingly with the defenders once again proving solid and allowing no goals in this quarter. The end result was 8-4 to Copthorne. Another well deserved win today girls with some great netball being played by both sides; it was a great match to empire and watch!
Thank you to all the spectators that came and supported the girls and thank you to all the U9’S who continuously work hard to put the effort in, in training and matches! TC
