It was our first netball match of the season and the Year 6 B team were a little nervous but excited about this. We have been doing a lot of practise the last few weeks looking at movement and footwork so this is what the team were to concentrate on in this match.
The first half started brilliantly and we got our goals in instantly with Fleur Barrett scoring so many goals I could hardly keep up. The team worked really well together passing the ball into space and running forward onto the ball. We finished the first half in the lead 13-0.
At half time the teams were mixed up a little to give the girls an opportunity to play new positions. This was great fun and they again performed superbly. The team enjoyed the game and kept their momentum up throughout. I was very pleased with their first match plus I did not need to call too many footwork issues up.
The final score was St Swithuns 17 St Gabriel’s 0
The player of the match was awarded to Aggie Waldron for never giving up. Well done.
