U11 Netball vs. Perse Girls
27 Feb 2012
On Tuesday, our U11 girls were hosted by the Perse Girls School. It was sunny and cool, perfect netballing weather, and the girls were raring to go when we arrived. The A team started steadily, finding their feet in the first quarter and reacquainting themselves with set plays and tactics after the half term break! The game picked up in the second quarter and our very own dynamic duo, Mel West and Emily Aldridge, proved a very effective goal-scoring combination; at half time The Prep were leading 7-2. The third quarter was a little erratic but Helena Hughes-Davies’ cool head and frequent interceptions helped the girls to maintain their lead. The final quarter of the game saw The Prep come into their own, displaying some textbook netball and winning 12-6.
The B team played a strong tactical game from the outset. By half time the girls were leading 4-0 and were feeling buoyant. The Perse Girls scored three goals in the second half of the match but The Prep were unwavering in their desire to maintain their lead. The final score of 6-3 was reflective of the hard work and determination shown by the girls in training over the past few weeks. A super afternoon of netball, well done girls!
