Under 10A Netball v Loretto
Wednesday 10th January
St. Mary's 11 - Loretto 0
Captain – Anna
Our first netball fixture of the season took place this week and after winning the toss we confidently stood in our positions to play.
First Quarter – SM 3 – L 0
Quick thinking, accurate passing and successful marking of players helped us to quickly score and take the lead in the first quarter with some great work from Kate and Tiggy next to the net. Anna and Skye kept the ball moving towards the goal and carefully looked for eye contact before passing to others.
Second Quarter – SM 4 – L 0
Our visitors picked up their speed, perfected their skills and resulting in some chances near the net but with Cadence and Emily carefully defending, they were unsuccessful in scoring. Tiggy and Kate continued with their superb teamwork to score a further 4 goals.
Third Quarter – SM 0– L 0
With a complete turn around of positions, we had a much tougher quarter and unfortunately no goals were scored. Iona and Cadence had a few chances at to score but missed each time with their being little time to perfect their shooting skills so early in the season.
Fourth Quarter – SM 4 – L 0
With no further position moves, I was delighted to see Iona get into full flow and start to score over and over again. The teamwork between Cadence and her was fabulous and we were delighted to see another 4 goals notched up.
Great work girls, this was a great start to our netball season! Take every chance to prepare during breaks at school as we host U10A Cargilfield next week.
