The Year 3 girls have made a flying start with their netball this term, with a huge amount of enthusiasm and determination.
We have learnt and been concentrating on chest and shoulder passes, attacking, defending and dodging along with the court positions, rules of the game and how to play a match. All the girls have a sound knowledge of the game and of match etiquette.
The girls were very excited before our first match, which was at home against Stamford. We had two teams and thank you to the Year 4 girls who came and made up the second team. After a tentative start, we soon managed to find our feet and everybody had a good match. The captains were Joanna and Hannah and the final scores were 4 – 0 to Stoneygate and 1 – 0 to Stamford.
Our second match was away at Great Houghton and approached with great excitement. We played as one team and rotated positions each quarter. There was some fantastic play in defence from Gizella and Joanna and Evie and Tasia found lots of space whilst attacking. Stoneygate dominated throughout and were the better team on the day with a 4 – 0 win. Evie was the captain.
Finally, our team of 7 (one away) captained by Gizella travelled to Wellingborough who have 19 girls in this year group. We were very confident throughout both matches and won 6 – 0 against their A team and 1 – 0 against their B’s. Well done to Evie who scored 5 goals and Joanna and Millie who scored 1. Amy worked extremely hard in defence and intercepted well and Hannah made safe passes enabling us to move the ball towards our goal.
A fantastic start, well done to all the girls.
