Netball Summary – End of February 2018

Truro School Under 12A 11 vs Mount Kelly 9


This was a fantastic match where all 12 members of the squad were able to take to the court. The focus of the match was to continue with our ongoing objective in training in that we have two players offering for the ball and that they are driving forward for the ball on an angle. During the first quarter the team were able to implement this strategy and this resulted in a 7-1 lead with Libby making a number of exceptional drives for the ball and re positioning after making a pass. The team continued with this excellent approach taking the ball to goal. The defensive effort of the team was also impressive as throughout the match the team prevented Mount Kelly from passing the ball with ease down the court. A great team effort. Player of the match was awarded by Mount Kelly to Amelia.


Truro School Under 12B 3 vs Mount Kelly 1


A home game during Wednesday Afternoon Activities provided an excellent opportunity for several students to represent the school for the first time. At the end of an evenly matched 1st quarter the score was 1 all. Throughout the game, Melissa made several key interceptions and was pivotal in supporting the play down the court. However, in the second and third quarters the girls struggled to find free space ahead of their defence, resulting in many long passes being thrown and on occasion the ball lost. The defensive effort by the whole team was exceptional throughout the close game. Meila scored twice in the latter stages of the game for Truro to secure the win.
