U9 Netball Tournament at Littlegarth,
Thursday 24 March 2011
The Holmwood girls were very excited and looking forward to this tournament, having played and beaten some of the teams before. Our first match, however, was against Littlegarth A whom we lost to last week. From the first whistle Holmwood dominated and stole the game. NouNou N and Alice D got over their nerves and shot beautifully and the whole team worked as one. Annabel H and Sarah B supplied the shooters whilst Daisy O, Ammaarah P and Scarlett G stopped Littlegarth from scoring.
With a clear win under our belts, we confidently took on The Abbey, Holmwood B and Littlegarth B, again winning easily. Our final game against St Margaret's started with a shock as we went 1-0 down, but the girls soon fought back and finished with a resounding 9-2 win to make us undefeated and overall tournament winners, having scored 49 goals and only conceding 5!
I have never witnessed such a strong U9 team who kept up their stunning performance all afternoon. At the presentation, the Headmaster of Littlegarth commented on the mature and modest way the Holmwood girls had handled their victories and I would like to reiterate that these girls have blossomed this term into super little players who have been a delight to coach. Well done girls!
Result: Tournament winners!
