U13A netball v Wisbech Grammar & Barnardiston Hall
Our first game was against Wisbech. We won first centre pass and got off to a quick start with Pippa, Ciara and Linda defending very well. We had continuous scoring going on while Wisbech only managed to pop in a few. By half time the score was 16-7 to us. We went back on feeling confident for another successful half: Frankie was excellent, and as well as our fantastic defence, Maria and Grace scored goal after goal for the rest of the game, Wisbech only scoring 2 more. When the whistle blew for full time the final score was 24-11.
We were on again straight after, playing Barnadistan and got off to rough start with alternate scoring between both sides for the first 6 goals, then Grace tripped over and the atmosphere was tense as we waited to see if she could carry one. Much to ours and Grace’s delight, she came back on and we got back into the flow and began to race ahead and score lots, even though their empire was ripping us to shreds. Pippa and Ciara made some marvellous interceptions and Linda stuck to her opponent like glue so she couldn’t get the ball! By half time the score was 17-3 to us. After a beneficial team talk we strode back on for the next half. Frankie was popping out here, there and everywhere then doing some amazing passes into the D for Maria and Grace who could not stop scoring. Our defence held up very well and only 2 more goals were able to be scored by Barnadistan. When the whistle blew for full time the final score was 30-5 to us.
Thank you to Mrs Fenner for coaching and Matron for match tea. Girl of the game goes to the whole team for faby-funtastic playing, special mention to Maria and Grace for their incredible scoring.
