Final Netball Fixtures- Downside

On Saturday 17th March there was a tense final match for our fabulous 1st Team against Downside. After the first quarter we were down a couple of goals but, undeterred, the team worked incredibly hard in defence. Both Caro and Fizz brought the ball back up to the attacking end and enabled Georgia and Izzy to secure the goals, despite a very strong GD on the other team. The team beat Downside 15-10. Well done to all the girls on that team from UV-UVI, they have had a great season with many close matches and hopefully the UVI will take away happy memories especially from our adventures cross-country to away matches.

The U15As had a fantastic game of netball to end the season, with St Mary’s and Downside competing furiously for every pass. St Mary’s gained a good lead with great persistent shooting from Alexa and Bego and some strong mid court play from Olivia and Lucy TT. We maintained our lead and stretched away in the second and third quarters with a tough fought last quarter winning us the game. Well done U15’s for a great game and super season of netball!

Meanwhile the U15Bs got into their stride and enjoyed a really close game. With 2-2 at half time there was all to play for! Sofia came on as the super sub and played some great attacking passes, whilst Tabs and Bea worked hard in the defending D to gain rebounds. Theo at centre controlled the St Mary’s game and used her agility and athleticism to deny her opposition any ball! With minutes to go, Downside scored to put them up 6-5 and despite some determined play from St Mary’s, this is how the score remained. A fabulous season for this growing and confident B team side. Well done everyone for your commitment and enthusiasm throughout!
