U9 Netball Tournament @ RGS
The U9s had a great day at RGS. We were grateful for the slightly milder weather and enjoyed having a squad of ten so we could make changes for each match. The first game was against HCS, this was a close game and our U8s Rosie and Scarlett worked hard. HCS went ahead but Alex got her eye in just in time to find the equaliser. In the second match we played RGS B; Freya, Kitty and Jess were in defence and Nell and Alice did a great job at feeding the ball into our D for Alex and Olivia who managed to score 7 goals between them against RGS B’s 1. Our third match was very well fought and finished a close 2-3 to RGS Springfield. Livvy had a good game in defence and stayed as GK for the fourth match against King’s Hawford. We now struggled with our lack of movement and Hawford looked very strong moving well up and down the court and intercepting any of our attacking efforts. We lost 0-7. Our final game was against the Elms. We rested Alex and Olivia and had another very close game. Both ends had chances but couldn’t get their shots in and the final score was 0-0. We finished fourth in our group and stayed on to watch a very exciting final against Kings Hawford and Malvern St James, which went to golden goal!
