The Netball season got under way for the U15B team with an away league match against Westbourne. Luckily, we were playing indoors (which makes all the difference, particularly this time of year), so the girls were happy! Although the first quarter was slow to get going, especially as most of the team hadn’t played netball since last season, we managed to end with a 4 – 4 draw. Our passing was quick, but unfortunately not accurate, and we were panicking, therefore not converting our interceptions. During the second half, the team slowed their play down and managed to convert their interceptions into goals. Maddie Cheshire and Libby Martin worked brilliantly in the shooting circle; moving effectively and ensuring passes was received under the post. Sophie Harper, Amber Harrell and Tori McCarroll worked tirelessly in defence, putting the shooters under pressure and turning the ball over. Charlotte Bowers and Laura Golding kept the momentum going in Centre, ensuring passes into our attacking circle were accurate and Maisie Watts and Lily Craig backed up on our defending line and around our attacking circle. A good team performance – well done girls!
