Lily reports: Despite extremely windy conditions at UEA, the Seconds netball team had tremendous success against both Norwich and Framlingham at the tournament on Saturday 9th March; winning both matches. Tension brewed as the goal difference was consistently small during the Norwich match, yet thanks to Izzy and Ella’s shooting prowess, we prevailed with a final score of 17-15. Although we were missing numerous team members, Hannah and Evelyn valiantly stepped up, and became invaluable players who alternated on the wing and kept their opposition under pressure. The disruption caused by the wind was immense, yet with Mrs Scahill’s encouragement, we persevered.
Issy and Lucy’s defence against the Framlingham team was robust, and consequently they found it increasingly difficult to score, whereas we scored in any few seconds we had under their net. Against some strong opposition, Sarah’s impressive stamina maintained a steady pace as the Framlingham players began to flag, and the final score was 14-10.
Overall an enormously encouraging success. Congratulations to all players.
