U13A v Pinewood(A)
On a nice sunny afternoon we played in Pinewood's wonderful sports hall. The game was fast moving and we missed Poppy in defence, but Noor stepped up when we arrived and played a very good game as GK. Pinewood moved the ball well and made very good use of the space on the court. We made some good counter attacks and after the first quarter we trailed by 3 goals. Pinewood took off in the second quarter with their shooters making it very hard work for our defence, and Julia and Annabel struggled to get the ball in the circle with some tough physical defence from Pinewood. They extended their lead to 13-5. In the third quarter we rallied with us actually scoring one more goal than they did in this 10minutes, but it was not enough of a comeback. In the final quarter Pinewood continued to put goals away with their shooters only missing about 3 shots in the entire game, and they extended their lead. Annabel played the best quarter and held onto some fantastic balls into the circle and scored some excellent goals. A very tough match, but Abberley worked hard and played some nice netball. Final score 24-13 to Pinewood.
