Under 11A Netball v Craigclowan

Wednesday 9th March 2016

Craigclowan-25: St. Mary’s 19
Captain: Rowan

U11 Netball 9 March 16

This game was rapid right from the start with Rowan scoring the first goal only 20 seconds after play began! Craigclowan replied with 3 of their own goals in quick succession and before we knew it they had a firm lead. The girls however, kept a sense of perspective and calmly clawed their way back to a score line that meant we were not out the game: 9-5 to Craigclowan.

Some nifty passing and good movement ensued during the second quarter but again Craigclowan had the upper hand-just! With 4 goals to their 6 we were now chasing a 6 goal difference 15-9 to Craigclowan.

I swapped Isla and Mhairi’s positions for the final two quarters; Mhairi going to WA and the taller Isla to WD; this made a difference to our defensive play and added a bit of height to our cause-with some super passing and work off the ball we in fact won this section 5 goals to 4 bringing the running total to Craigclowan 19, St. Mary’s 14.

Now running out of steam against a particularly tall group of Perthshire lasses, the girls did all they could to keep up; 5 more goals from St. Mary’s was just not enough as Craigclowan popped in another 6. Final score a very respectable 25-19 to Craigclowan.

I was so pleased with how the girls played today; real team work, great commitment, lots of learning and most importantly, fun! Thank you to Mrs Darling and Orla’s grandparents for their side-line support-much appreciated.

Shooters: GS Iona=8, GA Rowan=11
