This week the U9A netball team took on Great Walstead. The team was captained by Keira who unfortunately lost the toss but gave her team the choice of ends. Due to a later start from venue confusion the girls played 2 x 10 minute halves.
During the first half the teams were very evenly matched with good possession and passing from both teams. Copthorne were the first team to score with a great goal from Zara, whilst the second goal followed shortly after from Keira. The score at the end of the first half was 2-1 to Copthorne.
In the second half the girls really upped their game. Their passing was more accurate and they were moving into great spaces. Amreet and Eva defended well in the circle clearing the ball into the attack where Amelie and
Gabrielle were ready to feed the ball into the shooters. The movement around court and in the circle was much better. The final score finished 6-1 to Copthorne.
A great first match girls! I am excited to watch the team develop this season.
Well done to Keira who was my player
