Sevenfields v St Francis

By Alice (captain) and Harry

On Monday 20th November, the netball team played against Sevenfields, and I was team captain.

In the first quarter, Elizabeth came in with our first score of the match.

First quarter finished, 1-0 to us. The second quarter came quickly and, amazingly, Zoe scored 4 goals.

5-0 to us, half-time ended! The next part of the match was even better….

With Lilia scoring 4 goals, Fleur 2, Harry 1 and myself 1 as well.

Finally, the match ended, with Zoe picked by the opposition as their player of the match. In the end the final score was 13-0 to us.

And, in addition to that, this was a match in the local league.

Hopefully, our next match will be played just as well.

St Francis v Gorse Hill

By Niamh (captain) and Elizabeth

On Tuesday 31st, we played a close match against Gorse Hill. I was team captain and needed to organise beforehand. We played a great first quarter, which was probably one of our best, except from the fourth quarter in which we scored.

Unfortunately for us, in the 2nd and 3rd quarter, they were on their game and scored within the first minute. It was a thorough disappointment bit it did not diminish our team spirit. Alice was our scorer, hitting the target first time.

It was a tough game, however, Gorse Hill won 3 to 1. Lilia was chosen as ‘Man of the Match’ by the opposition for fantastic teamwork, but each of us played our part in a closely fought match. Mrs Sellars chose Fleur as her player of the match as it was her debut on the team and she never left her opponent’s side, producing some excellent interceptions. We really look forward to our next match.
