U13B netball - a winning week
On Wednesday we played Lucton away and had a fabulous afternoon basking in the sun and thinking netball is a great fair weather game!
They played first quarter incredibly well and were 8-1 up. So we had a shuffle around. Minty went into defence, causing carnage at the back while Alejandra and Apolline continued to shoot well. Each quarter produced a new combination from Abberley and we discovered most of the team can shoot! Leyre continued to play very well in centre court. Mercedes was also very strong on defence making some very good interceptions throughout the match. It was fab to see that even out of their usual positions the girls played their game and continued to score.
Final score: Abberley 22-8 Lucton
On Saturday we were away the The Downs. The weather was less wonderful but still fair although the wind began to pick up towards the end. The match was fairly even throughout although it shooters definitely had luck on their side, mostly getting the ball in first time. Alejandra got her eye in in this match, she has worked very hard in training and came off the pitch beaming after adding to our total. Leyre continued to work the game around her at centre court and the defence took some incredible interceptions. Mercedes’ arms appeared to grow inches each time!
Final score: Abberley 13-11 The Downs
Well done on a fantastic week!!
