U9s fight hard in the snow.
What a cold afternoon for the U9s to be playing netball! On Pitch A Abberley got off to a good start and after several shots at goal Olivia H managed to get one in the net and we finished the first quarter 1-0 up. Olivia did score again in the 2nd quarter but HCJS found their feet and there were some fierce throws. They scored three goals quite quickly and then the half time whistle came round early when Kitty got hit in the face by a strong overhead throw. Despite good efforts from Alex, Jessica, Rosie and Olivia E we did not manage to score again and we often lost possession to Hereford who were better at putting away their chances. Kitty and Scarlett defended well but unfortunately we could not match Hereford and the final score was 2-8.
On Pitch B the first quarter was nail biting end to end action that ended 1-1. At half time the score was still close being 2-1 to Hereford. In the second half Hereford (who were playing 7 against our 6) grew in confidence and scored 7 goals whilst Abberley couldn’t get the ball to the shooters often enough and we didn’t score at all. The final score was 1-9 and we were all grateful to get out of the snow and up to warm match teas!
