U11 D v Loretto
It was a great afternoon for a netball match over at Loretto today. We had near perfect, calm conditions and bright sunshine in the sky. The girls played really well against very strong opposition who had a clear height advantage. Loretto got off to a flying start with 7 goals in the first quarter to our one goal. A similar pattern of play continued in the second quarter. They were a very strong unit who passed the ball fast and cleanly and we found it tricky to intercept their passes. In the second half, Cargilfield found their feet a bit more, especially in defence conceding 3 goals in both quarters. They defended really well and managed to move the ball up the pitch much more. Unfortunately, this was a little to late to impact the scoreline. I am so proud of the girls for trying their best throughout the whole match and never giving up, despite being an unevenly matched team. They kept their heads and up and kept working as a team. A special mention to Aurelia who was awesome at Goal Defence in the second half having only started playing a couple of weeks ago!Well done girls.
