U9 Netball versus Loretto U10s
A team lost 4-10
B team lost 2-7
The Under 9s took on the Loretto U10 netball teams today. As they were two players short, we also played with 2 U10s Ceci and Thalia, to facilitate 14 players for each school. The As played first and the first quarter was very close, with Loretto edging it 3 goals to our two goals from Zinnia and Alice. We tried hard but Loretto were stronger and their shooters were improving in accuracy all the time. Thalia came on in Glory’s position as poor Glory received a bump and sustained a nose bleed. We continued to battle but Loretto were clearly better at getting into spaces. Too often our passes went adrift or even straight to the opposition. We moved positions in the third quarter and Thalia scored a fine goal. Lily and Helena tried very hard to prevent the shooter from scoring but three further goals were scored. Ceci came on in the fourth quarter and it was much tighter. We had a few more attempts to score but did not manage it unfortunately. The final score was Loretto 10 Cargilfield 4.
Florence and Glory kindly played with Loretto’s B team and they were good sports to do so. They also played well in their positions. The Cargilfield girls tried very hard and did not give up but we were not managing to keep possession. We need to pass more accurately and take less risks. Whilst we did pass to each other and left no one out, Loretto often managed to steal the ball back. Once again, their shooting accuracy was good and whilst Ailsa fought hard a total of 7 goals were scored to our two. Jemima and Clara played well as centre and wing attack often passing the ball between each other. It was not our day however and the final score was Loretto 7 Cargilfield 2. Never mind! We all had fun and enjoyed playing netball!
