This week the U9s took on St. Christopher’s at netball, Talia was our captain this week! The girls got off to a great start with Talia making a fantastic interception to win back the centre pass. The girls then moved the ball quickly down the court and into the shooting circle where Rachel quickly scored the first goal of the game! An impressive start! Throughout the first quarter the girls continued to move the ball easily around the court. Tianna and Talia were on top form making great interceptions while Rachel, Bella and Bethany were attacking the play. The score was now 3-0 to Copthorne with all goals coming from Rachel.
The second quarter saw great marking from all girls on both teams, but Copthorne had once again upped their game. Tianna and Bella were providing great support to Bethany and Rachel in the circle while Jennifer and Talia supported all the play. A great long shot from Bethany brought the game to 6-0 to Copthorne.
During the second half all girls continued to play well despite the cold and worked hard for the ball. Priya and Anna were working hard in defence while Ruby had a great go at shooting, showing she is effective in both circles. Tianna and Talia continued to impress while Bella and Jennifer worked hard in the centre court. The final score was 10-1 to Copthorne with further goals from both Bethany and Rachel.
Another strong performance girls, with great team spirit!
