U13B Netball v CC Brecon (H)
The U13B team, along with reinforcements from the U11s, played Christ College U12s today. We are still early in the season so it was a coaching game with both teams benefitting from early reminders about footwork, distance when defending and contact.
Throughout the match we really improved our use of space on court and began to work together when moving the ball up the court. Grace made some good decisions as captain at the start and gave a few encouraging words of advice to the team. Elsa and Maria played particularly well considering they have hardly played netball before: the progress Maria has made with her footwork this week is really very impressive.
Good interceptions by Evelyn and Mercedes and improved accuracy of passes meant that the ball reached our circle much more in the final quarter. Some good shooting by Emily and Lottie, despite a tall defence, meant that our last quarter was by far our strongest. Aggie enjoyed a go at playing centre in this quarter too and showed good speed covering the ground.
