Netball - U9 A Tournament at Orwell Park (A), Wednesday 1 October 2014
The U9 A team attended the Orwell Park High Fives tournament on Wednesday 1 October. Holmwood's first opponents were Littlegarth, who had beaten them in a match the previous week, so it was a hard fought eight minute game which Holmwood unfortunately lost.
The girls rotated into their next position on court and played superbly against Barnardiston Hall, winning 5-0 with Ilayda H and Millie M scoring the goals.
The next match was against Orwell Park and Jemima L and Martha M shot extremely well to secure a 3-0 victory.
At this point in the tournament, the As were still in with a chance provided they beat South Lee who were looking very determined. In an extremely close match, Holmwood won by a single goal - Martha M and Jemima L defended well to stop South Lee scoring at all.
It was all to play for in the final match - a win against Brandeston Hall would definitely secure a medal as Littlegarth and South Lee had both lost matches in this round robin competition. Paige S and Martha M had chances and Sabine S defended well, but Holmwood lost the game. Despite this, Holmwood still came second in the tournament and all six girls proudly accepted their medals.
