Netball - U11 B VII vs OBH

After a long and twisty journey, some of the girls got off the coach feeling rather unwell which did not bode well!  We then had a long wait in the cold whilst OBH played Riddlesworth, but this time allowed the girls to recover so actually worked to our advantage.
Playing a strong OBH team first, we quickly got into our stride, linking the ball accurately up the court with all the girls dodging well and finding space. Keira W had an excellent game throughout as GS and got us off to a solid start with a goal in the first quarter.  Working with GA, Clara M, they put into practise some of the training skills we have been working on to pass the ball around until they were in a good shooting position.
In the second half our defence, Julia K and Flora D, kept the ball out of the opposition's circle and they worked well with our centre court players, Georgie C, Sophie H and Martha H to get the ball into our attacking half.
Final score 3 - 0 to Holmwood
The second match against Riddlesworth consisted of only 10 minutes of play as the opposition had to leave early.  This was a very scrappy match against an inexperienced team and we never found our form.  We were very bunched and did not hold our positions making passing very difficult, resulting in many interceptions by the opposition.
Riddlesworth were quick to capitalise on this and the match ended a 1 - 3 loss.
