U9A Netball v Hurstpierpoint – Feb 2017

10th February 2017

This week the U9s took on Hurst and today’s captain was Ffion. Once again the girls got off to a flying start, an interception was made from Daisy at the centre pass which was then fed straight into the circle via Harley to Biba. Biba then converted this into a goal using her ‘dummy shot’ trick we had practised. A great start! The rest of the first quarter saw great pace off the ball, interceptions from the defence and good spatial awareness from the shooters. Further goals came from both Biba and Ella who both completed their challenge they had been set. A fantastic quarter with the score now 8-0 to Copthorne … A goal a minute!

With a slight change of positions the girls continued to work well as a team and the game continued to flow. Further goals were scored by Ella and Tayla with Layla making some fantastic interceptions in defence. The score at half time was 11-1.

The second half saw further rotation and changes of players to keep Hurst in the game. Copthorne however continued to dominate and impress. Biba and Ffion had a great long shot on goal and the girls continued to work as a team. Once again showing a great depth in our squad, with versatile players. The final score was 16-1 to Copthorne.

This week’s girl of the game was Ella.
