We were all very excited about our trip to Richmond House ‚Äď we were sad that Connie couldn‚Äôt come with us because she was ill.¬† We are looking forward to playing with her next time.
We played 7 matches, and our play improved with each match.¬† We got better at marking, and at looking for spaces when our team had the ball.¬† Our shooters also got more confident during the day.
Thea and Annabel both defended brilliantly.¬† Emily T and Sophia had some great attempts at goal, and Emily R and Darcie did some excellent passing.
Match 1:¬† Pocklington
Pocklington had the ball to start with, and accidently passed the ball to Darcie, which gave us a good start.¬† Annabel fell over and suffered an injury early in the game, but bravely carried on and managed to score our first goal of the festival.¬† We won the match 1-0.
Match 2:¬† Bronte House
Great opening play by Terrington created lots of chances for us to score.¬† Both teams played really well, and used the whole court.¬† Emily R did some super marking, and the final score was 0-0 after an exciting match.
Match 3:¬† Gateways
Brilliant passing by all Terrington players early in the game got us off to a good start.¬† Gateways had excellent shooters and scored a really good goal.¬† Soon Thea scored too to bring us to 1-1.¬† Gateways then scored a second goal, and so did Thea!¬† Emily R then tried for a long shot, which went in, putting us 3-2 ahead.¬† Thea scored the final goal to take us to a 4-2 win.
Match 4:¬† Froebelian
Froebelian scored an excellent opening goal, followed quickly by another, and then a third.¬† During this match there was great defensive play by Darcie, who snatched the ball off the floor from among the feet of the opposition.¬† We had a very nice try at goal by Annabel, and another good try by Emily T, but the final score was 3-0 to Froebelian.
Match 5:¬† Richmond House
A very fast paced and exciting match, with excellent attacking and defending play from both teams.¬† The final score was a 0-0 draw.
Match 6: Richmond House
Two quick early goals by Richmond House were followed by some super defending by Terrington.¬† Another goal by Richmond House took them to a 3-0 lead.¬† Darcie then had two excellent tries at goal, and a lovely goal from Sophia took the final score to 3-1 to Richmond House.
An exciting festival of netball where we won two of our matches, drew two, and were beaten twice.¬† Everyone played so well that I would like the whole team to share man of the match!¬† Thank you to Richmond House for organizing a great afternoon, and for Miss Knights and Miss Diggory for taking us, and for umpiring.
