St. Mary’s- 8: Mowden-4
Captain: Sumaiyah


U11A Netball 25 Jan


Having toured around the Northumberland countryside we were a little late arriving and so were straight in to the game without a warm up! It had been noted that the nets were at ‘senior’ height but ‘when in Rome ‘and all that…the girls just had to get on with it, we are made of stern stuff!
Much to the delight of the Coach, Lara scored 20 seconds in to the game (and yes, the nets were still at senior height!) This boosted the team and in their usual fashion they worked their socks off, Hannah scoring another three goals and they reached ¼ time 4-goals to 1 in the lead.

The second ¼ saw Mowden come back at us and thus Sumaiyah, Rosie and Molly S had to stay alert and defend to the hilt; with both teams scoring 1 goal the running score at half –time was a very close 5 goals to 3 in our favour.

Lara had her ‘shooting eye’ back in place for the 3rd ¼ scoring 2 goals and with Hannah netting one we had 3 to Mowden’s 1. Eliza and Mhairi darted hither and thither feeding the ball quickly in to the D and with Molly intercepting like a demon we worked at full pace and deserved to be back in control.

The final ¼ was scrappy from both sides though we did retain the majority of the possession. A fair 0-0 was the score after 8 mins. We had, however, done enough to win, and deservedly so.

Special mention must go to Lara x4 and Hannah x 4who kept calm under pressure and proved that the sky’s the limit!

Well done.
