U9A Netball v Fettes

U9A Netball v Fettes

Some excellent teamwork on show!

This was our second fixture against Fettes, playing outside this time, and it was interesting to see how much all the girls from both schools had improved.

Cargilfield A 15 Fettes 2.

The A team played first and I was delighted with the quick passing from Lucy, Maddie and Esme delivering the ball into the circle for Esme and Izzy to shoot on goal. Our positioning and awareness in the shooting circle was much improved since the January game and we quickly scored three gaols. I was pleased at how creative the girls were using Maddie at centre and Lucy at Wing attack to get the ball into improved shooting positions. This was very important as the Fettes GD was very tall and her hands were able to block many shots. So we had to pass and shoot quickly. Amalia and Tessa also worked well as GD and GK and Fettes were only able to score one goal. I advised the girls to try to take the ball wide in the next quarter, rather than playing up the middle. We tried to do this and Maddie was particularly mobile and got the ball moving quickly. We had an excellent second quarter scoring five further goals. Whilst Fettes were defending and passing well, we just kept on pushing with clear determination. The final quarters were a little quieter. Bea came on as WD and Savannah came back on in the final quarter, this time substituting for Lucy and she was able to continue Lucy’s excellent work, intercepting well and making good passing decisions. It was a superb team effort and a well-deserved win. We finished with four goals in the last quarter, the very last goal being set up as a clever bounce pass to Esme to avoid the tall GD. Good thinking, Izzy. The whole game showed just how well the girls’ strategic play is developing. Well done!

Final score Cargilfield A 15 Fettes 2.

The B Team also had a successful game beating Fettes 7-1. Well done, Cargilfield! Report to follow.
