Netball - U13 1st VIIs vs South Lee
A great start to our netball season this afternoon. All 8 players gave 100% effort to performing at their best and it was most encouraging to see the superb team spirit and ethos in the team.
The first quarter was very tight and South Lee's quick play after interceptions gave the girls lots to think about! It ended 5 - 6 to South Lee.
In the second quarter their defence put a stop to quite a few of our goal scoring opportunities, which resulted in 8 - 12 to South Lee at half time.
A good half time discussion and some new tactics to try resulted in a superb quarter. Holly D and Maisy played really well; putting some great overhead balls into Freya and Mischa who scored 8 goals between them putting us into the lead 16-14. Great resilience and determination shown by the girls to achieve this! Margot and Charlotte worked hard in defence in this quarter making some superb interceptions from rebounds. A special mention to Charlotte,who was playing in a new position and showed great improvement in the course of the match.
The fourth quarter was just as exciting and the girls had now really got into their stride; working well around the semi circle to get balls into the shooters. The match finished 23 - 17 to Holmwood. A fantastic start to the season. Well done!
