Netball Summary – Week beginning Monday 12 October

Netball Weekly summary:

PSP vs Pool
 
Under 12 Won 18-1
 
The girls worked very hard in this match to ensure that they had somebody at the top of the D and another attacking player on the appropriate side of the circle allowing for two options when getting the ball into a good shooting position. Initially the girls struggled to understand the concept but as the match progressed they had much greater success. Well done to Millie who was awarded player of the match and who worked hard to ensure she effectively utilized her 3 seconds.
 
Under 13 Won 12 – 0
 
With a lot of passing errors in the first quarter the team focused on their passing and timing for the rest of the match. The team performance improved throughout the game and with super shooting by Antonia and Ellie, great court play by Nila and strong circle defending saw Truro control the game, well done everyone.
 
Under 14 Won 12-1 
 
The squad of girls worked well in all the different combinations. As the game progressed they started to work the ball around the attacking third not forcing it into the attacking circle. Without exception each girl gave 100% effort.
 
Under 15s won 14-1
 
Under 16 won 12- 0
 
Under 18 County Netball Tournament
 
The Under 18s travelled to Bodmin for this years tournament. It was a beautiful sunny day with perfect conditions for playing netball outside. Truro were drawn in a section with Penwith College, Liskeard, Wadebridge and Newquay Tretherras. All 11 players in the squad got lots of court time, winning all of their group games quite comfortably.
 
Penwith: 10-4

Newquay Tretherras: 14-4

Liskeard: 14-7

Wadebridge: 11-3
 
As a result of winning their section Truro then went on to play the runners up of section 2, Helston. The match started quite scrappily with the score 4 all at half time. Truro picked up the pace in the second half and went 4 goals ahead, Helston dug deep and came back with the final score 9-7 to Truro.
 
This ensured them a place in the Regional finals in January. They met Truro College in the final who played exceptionally to win 18-3.
 
County Runners Up – congratulations to all the squad.
