We travelled to Ipswich High on a glorious afternoon and knew we had to be on our game to win this tournament but also knew that we had it in ourselves to do so. We started off playing St Joseph’s and from the very beginning played well and dominated them. This was a comfortable victory with all of the girls playing their part.
Next it was Ipswich High and they gave us a run for our money to start with, but we stayed calm! Maddie and Steph put in some great shots and Ruby distributed the ball well in the centre. Lily and Ada played well in defence, passing the ball securely up to Maggie and Chloe. Sure enough, we came out on top, knowing our next game would be our toughest.
Ipswich School have some strong players but Libbie, Esme, Izzy all played really well and kept possession of the ball vitally when we were ahead. But Ipswich then pulled it back to one score behind… we were counting down the seconds (well the Dads on the side-line were!) … and the hooter went at last! Phew.
Our last game was against our B team and the girls played really well and it was so good to see them all on a court together.
Well done, girls, a great display of netball, team work, belief and determination. You are a pleasure to coach and here’s to the next fixture!
