1st Netball v St Mary’s and Loretto
The 1st girls had a fun afternoon playing a triangular match against St Mary’s and Loretto. Our first match was against Loretto who opened the scoring first. We soon fought back and Amy and Amelia’s shooting in particular, was impressive to watch. With the score at 9-4 at half time, the girls started to pull away as the minutes progressed and we were just that bit too strong for the Loretto girls.

We played St Mary’s next who we had lost to earlier in the season. This game was always going to be a close one and the girls were really up for a good match. They certainly did not disappoint. The game flowed from end to end with both teams scoring on their centre pass. St Mary’s nudged ahead at half time leading 6-5. Our girls were chomping at the bit to win the match and no one could put a foot wrong in the second half. Flora and Emma worked particularly hard in defence and intercepted some really tricky balls. Again, Amelia and Amy scored every time they shot and Katie, Ellie and Sophie linked well, finding space and getting the ball through to the shooters. Catherine came on at half time and it was great to see her stand her ground against some very strong St Mary’s girls. We pulled ahead and by the end, had a comfortable lead which meant the girls could enjoy playing some really high quality netball.
