U9 Netball v Loretto

Wednesday 2nd March 2016

The U9’s had a great afternoon at Loretto this week with a team that we are getting to know well after enjoying several fixtures with them this year. Although it was very cold and wintery, we got underway and played 2 excellent matches of 28 minutes, showing great team spirit and determination.

Our U9 Bs showed that they have really been taking on instruction well during games as they were moving well, marking their opponents and keeping foot faults to a minimum. Their hard work was rewarded with a 3-0 victory, but credit goes to Loretto who didn’t make it easy for us.

As always, the U9 As had a more difficult task and had to work hard for every point. Both sides were making the most of possession and passing accurately, with lots of attempts at goal, even with cold fingers! With 2 minutes to go, St Mary’s were a goal up and there was a last minute push from Loretto to even the match. In spite of their efforts, at full time the score stood at 5-4 in our favour. A great result, but more importantly an exciting, well played match from both teams.
