Netball Summary – Week Beginning Monday 29 September

Under 18A vs Truro College A, Lost 13:83

This was a tough match against strong opponents. The Sixth Form girls played with great determination and never gave up. Marina was nominated player of the match, which was well deserved.

 

Under 18B vs Truro College C, Won 23:8

School were, pleasingly, quick out of the blocks and dominated both circles from the off to race to a 9:1 lead inside five minutes. Laura controlled the centre court beautifully and, despite a rally from College in the third quarter, put the game to bed by dominating the last period. Immy, Maddie and Sadie grabbed defensive rebounds all afternoon to limit college’s second chances.

 

Vs Penrice

Under 14A, Won 30:7

Another very positive performance, once more trying out new combinations. The girls worked tirelessly down the court making many turnovers. Emily was voted player of the match. A great squad effort.

 

Under 14B, Won 15:10

The squad took a while to adapt to each other’s play and lost possession of the ball often in the first half. However once they appreciated they had to work as a team in order to win they raised their team spirit and supported each other.

 

Under 16, Won 29:12

A really positive performance from the whole squad. With improved timing, passing and consistent shooting saw the game never in doubt. Super performance by Kitty at WD.

 

PSP vs Richard Lander

 

Under 12, Won 24:3

What a talented squad of girls. They defended throughout the court when necessary with every player making at least one interception. The girls then capitalised on these interceptions and took the ball to goal with ease, through accurate passes and excellent timing of drive.

 

Under 13, Lost 11:19

After a slow start the girls started to perform well as a squad and produced some good phases of play. We now need to make these phases more consistent throughout the whole match. Zoe was nominated player of the match.

 

Under 14, Won 25:9

The girls had an unusually poor start in the first quarter, however they dominated for the final three. Truro had to dig deep against a determined Richard Lander team. Millie and Amy having a great game.

 

Under 15, Won 13:4

During the first quarter of the match the girls did not account for the slippery court and made numerous errors through passes that were over a long distance and not accurate enough to allow for their team mates to catch as sprinting was a challenge. However after a regroup they appreciated the need for shorter accurate passes. This improved team moral as they were able to get the ball to goal more successfully, coming out overall winners.

 

Under 16, Lost 16:19

Richard Lander came out on top in an even contest which saw both teams play some lovely, fluid netball. Truro moved the ball beautifully down court but, oddly enough, never led during the game; Lander doing just enough to stay ahead throughout. Alex worked tirelessly and was a great link between defence and attack.
