Year 7 Netball - Chilton vs Haygrove 13th March 2018
Maddie worked well at tipping the ball out of the opponents reach on numerous occasions, in line with Amelia who powered through the whole game with focus and poise. Olivia snuck stealthily around Haygrove’s attackers, light-footed and quick. She also demonstrated perfect etiquette on the court at all times.
A looping goal from Grace and net-rimming one from Ava made for an optimistic first and second quarter. Throughout, Paige kept working hard as ‘centre’, as did Jess who tried her best to stay with her opponent.
We mixed up the roles after the second half, which the girls were willing to do. Miss Evans jumped in to ‘goal shoot’ and we scored 10– just kidding – Scobie performed well in a change to defence. Swapping bibs gave our team a chance to compare their strengths in different positions as well as giving them some decisions to make.
Despite our efforts, Haygrove put away goals like Chilton PE department put away hot dinners. A confident 12-2 win for them will no doubt make it in to their newsletter, if not ours.
Snow days have caused disruption with netball training, and the girls could have done with some time as a team. Would a good netballer blame the weather? Yes, we will blame the weather.
Hopefully tomorrow when many of the same girls play their football final, we will have some contrasting results! The game will be at home – please come and get some sunshine and support, even if for 5 minutes! 😊
