Under 11A and U11B Netball v Ardvreck

A=St.Mary’s-1: Ardvreck-1

Captain: Abbie
U11A netball 3 feb 16

Ardvreck started slowly after their long journey and the game was there for the taking-in the first 7 minutes anyway! Our mid court play was strong at this point with Abbie, Isla and Jessica linking well and passing sensibly. Having had the majority of play in our attacking quarter we were unlucky to have only scored one goal.

Ardvreck came back fighting in the second quarter and had swapped a couple of players around. Orla and Sasha did a sterling job in defence as, unfortunately, did their opposite numbers. Ardvreck equalised during this passage of play and we were lucky it was only one goal netted.

The third quarter was not perhaps the best display of netball I have seen from these young ladies; the ball was passed to the opposition on more occasions than I would like to count and we hid behind our opponents rather than making the effort to get free. Neither team scored bringing ¾ time to 1-1!

A livelier start to the final quarter; Rowan and Iona were more awake and had at last begun to move out from behind their opponents and call for the ball-well done! Neither team managed to score but in all honesty a draw was a fair reflection of this match. This is the lowest scoring netball match I have umpired in 24 years…not because the shooters were bad, but because the defence were strong!

Scorer: Rowan
