This week the U9A netball team took on Lingfield Notre Dame at netball in their second match of the week.
Today’s captain was Zara who unfortunately lost the toss but gave Copthorne the shooting end they wanted. The girls were very determined for a win today to continue their unbeaten netball season and not having the first centre pass was not going to put them off!
The girls got off to a flying start with an interception by Amreet, we then had 4 great passes through Gabbi, Amelia, Keira and Zara resulting in a goal! What a start! The girls continued to play well with outstanding marking from everyone meaning LND didn’t even get a shot on goal. The score after the first quarter was 4-0 to Copthorne!
During the second quarter the girls lost their way a little with a few very ambitious passes. It was clear that LND had upped their game too. The score at half time was 5-0 to Copthorne.
After a little team talk the girls were back and raring to play. The play in the 3rd quarter was outstanding once again. Everyone was marking tightly, passing was accurate, interceptions were made in defence and goals were scored! The score was now 9-1 to Copthorne.
The final score was 11-2 to Copthorne with goals scored by Zara, Keira and Amelie! A fantastic game by all the team, leading to an unbeaten season so far!
