U11A netball success

Congratulations to the U11A netball team on their success in their first netball match of the season.  The girls were a little apprehensive at first as they faced Thorngrove, a school we had not encountered before. 

The first quarter was extremely close with Thorngrove just nudging ahead 5-4.  St Swithun’s worked hard on retaining possession of the ball and pulled up to equalise 10 – 10 at half- time. 

During the second half the team played with increased confidence and determination.  Freya was extremely focused and intercepted the ball successfully in defence and Tallulah, ably assisted by Alice, scored most proficiently.  The final score was a 16-13 victory to St Swithun’s with ‘Player of the Match’ badges  awarded to Freya and Tallulah.
