U9 Netball v Fettes

U9 Netball v Fettes

Lots of excellent play, girls!

Red team lost 3-10

Green team won 8-1

We played 2 matches this afternoon on the preprep astro. There were a few throws that went over the third as it is a small pitch, but we did enjoy the netball and it was lovely to have some Mums spectating!

We played High Five netball, 4 rotations of six minutes, allowing the girls to experience playing in different positions. Zinnia was our outstanding player in the Red team, moving very well around the pitch, strong in both attacking and defending positions. Alexandra also shone, managing to get into spaces well and passing the ball on accurately. Fettes were much better at marking however and often won the ball back quickly. This will be a target for our Under 9s- to improve at marking and getting free for the ball. Whilst Isla, Livia and Zinnia did score 3 lovely goals, it was not to be and we were defeated with the final score of Fettes 10 Cargilfield 3.

The Green team started with a very strong first rotation. It was lovely to see Lily our new member of Form 4 play well and shoot so accurately. She scored 3 goals and Alice scored also. The rotations meant that the match was closer in the second and third rotations and the play was more even at this point. It was great to see Beatrice score. We finished strongly again with 3 further goals: 2 from Clara and 1 from Jemima. Final score Cargilfield 8 Fettes 1.

Livia and Jemima were our captains and they did a marvellous job looking after Fettes. Well done to all the girls! It was a fun packed afternoon of netball.
