Sports Report - Year 8 Netball
Tonight I took the year 8 netballers to BCA. They were quite excited to be playing as their last two fixtures were cancelled due to snow and then the host venue not being able to host.
We played first against BCA, we won the toss so had first centre pass, The girls went out quickly and effectively and had scored three goals within the first few minutes, denying BCA possession and goals. a mistake in the centre court allowed BCA to score. the first half score we led 5-1.
After a small team change we dominated the second half scoring 9 goals to BCA's zero. The girls made valuable interceptions and threw sensibly into space making well timed runs, demonstrating some fab netball. Final score 14-1.
Our second game was against Haygrove, we knew it would be tougher than the previous game and we had just played whereas Haygrove had had a rest.
We held Haygrove from scoring for the first 3 minutes with the ball going from defence to attack and back again. they eventually scored 3 to our zero in the first half. We were tiring way before Haygrove and they continued to drive onto the ball and make well timed interceptions to turnover passion which they capitalised on, scoring another 5 goals. We got the ball into the attacking circle on several occasions but their defence only allowed us to score 1. the girls were disappointed on the loss but they still played some great netball.
Again, a pleasure to take to a fixture.
