U11A Netball v Fettes
Wednesday 22nd February 2017
St. Mary’s 11: Fettes-4
This fixture showed the importance of being alert from the word go as it was most definitely a game won in the first ¼ of play. Our girls were on fire and took Fettes by surprise with the first goal after only 40 seconds and another 4 within the 8 minutes.
The girls were advised that Fettes would come back at them- which they certainly did during the next two quarters! With both teams scoring 2 goals in the second ¼ and 1 in the third ¼ , the game was fairly even; the ¾ time score stood at 8-3 to St. Mary’s but I was afraid, that given the sudden upsurge in Fettes shooting that they may snatch victory from us. I should have known better than to doubt this bunch…once again they stepped up a gear and won the final ¼ 3 goals to 1 and thus the match 11 goals to 4.
Lara (GS) Tremendous shooting form both long and short range-such confidence-bravo!
Hannah (GA) Really good movement around the D as well as communication and calling for the ball.
Mhairi (WA) the pocket rocket; wow, such speed around the court and great perception of space.
Eliza (C) well timed centre passes, great tenacity and linking with WD and WA
Molly S (WD) Such athleticism, Molly can jump to great heights to reach the ball and linked beautifully too.
Sumaiyah (GD) Having 2 brothers makes this young lady know how to fight for the ball-marvellous interceptions.
Rosie (GK) Utterly reliable and with height to her advantage, Molly irritated the oppositions shooters at just the right time.
What a team performance-I was so proud of you all!
Goals: Lara x 8 Hannah C x 3
