Netball v Godolphin 25th January 2018

Last Thursday the 1st & 2nd netball teams played their first matches of the season against Godolphin; it was the first time the girls had come together as a squad. In the 1sts match, in the first third Godolphin played hard and gained a lead, but after figuring out a pattern of play we were able to move the ball efficiently down the court, ending with some excellent goals from our shooters. In the last third we were closing in on Godolphin’s lead but just ran out of time and after a hard-fought match Godolphin came away with the win. Well done to all the girls who played, it was a promising start to the season.

In the 2nds game, the team worked steadily with a strong passage of play down the court, with huge thanks to Fleur H who stepped in to play at the last minute from the U14 team. Once the shooters worked out their movement patterns around the defence they shot brilliantly, to maintain a lead throughout the game. Well done to the defensive team of Mary, Electra and Tallulah who prevented Godolphin finding their rhythm at all. A superb win for the team and a great start to the term.
