U13A Netball v CC Brecon (H)
The game started quickly with Abberley working on feeding the ball quickly into the circle, we did this with efficiency and Julia's shooting was on top form. Poppy and Rachel were amazing in defence and the opposition found it tricky to work the ball into their circle. We had a heavy lead after the first quarter, so we made some moves to open up the play a bit. Immy had worked exceptionally hard on her footwork, and played well at both WA, and GK when she moved positions. Kate moved up from the B team as we had illness and required another shooter, she moved well and the rest of the team really began to use her effectively in the second quarter. We continued to extend our lead, so we made further changes in the third quarter.
Poppy and Julia came off and we moved up Izzy H from the B team to play with us. You would not have know she was an U11, she moved well and shot some excellent goals. Everyone adapted to their new positions well, and Charliee made some excellent interceptions. CC Brecon scored some excellent shots from distance to make this a much closer quarter. In the final quarter Izzy D and Immy had a go at shooting, they rose to the challenge and both scored some goals, and Izzy D demonstrated her commitment to her team by throwing herself off the back line to keep the ball in play.
A convincing win for Abberley, but it was really good to see the girls still reacting to coaching points in each quarter, and also adapting to new positions and showing flexibility as a team.
