U13A Netball and Rounder v Loretto

Wednesday 26th May 2021
St. Mary’s 17: Loretto 7
St. Mary’s 20.5: Loretto 7.5

It was both a privilege and a pleasure to umpire the U13a Netball and rounders.  Not having had a competitive fixture since March 2020 we were all eager and excited to welcome our visitors.

First up was the netball fixture which began at a fast and furious pace.  Both teams had skilful players and the ball was moved rapidly from one end to another – the edge we had over Loretto was our shooters, Iona and Kate barely missed a shot whenever they were fed the ball.  Our midcourt and defensive play too, was strong, all the more impressive given the girls had not set foot on court for quite some time.  We won each quarter (5-2) (4-0) (5-3) (3-2) by enough to give us an overall score of 17-7.

Following a short break, we took off for the back pitches and 2 innings of rounders. Again, the girls played brilliantly and certainly showed the opposition how to play the game. With 6 catches, 15 full and 11 x ½ rounders scored we collected a total of 20.5 to Loretto’s 7.5.

Excellent play and a fun filled afternoon – well done, all.
