U9 Netball v Belhaven

U9 Netball v Belhaven

Well played, girls!

Whilst it was a shame that Ardvreck could not play, as planned, the U9 girls were delighted to play Belhaven. We fielded two teams against their team and decided to put out the B team first. Belhaven started strongly and scored an early goal, despite Clara and Alexandra’s best efforts in defence. It did not take us long to get back however. Initially we seemed to freeze for a minute or two when we lost the ball but with some encouragement we got back in our positions and marked more closely. We managed to get the ball to Lily who was shooting very accurately. Belhaven scored a further three but Lily scored a total of five, leading to a final score of Cargilfield B 5: Belhaven 3. Well done to all the girls, but particularly to Clara, who is playing much better and to Ailsa SA, who is defending well and passing with good speed and accuracy.

The A team enjoyed playing half the game against the same Belhaven team, but it was clear that we were stronger. Alice scored once, and Zinnia, twice, giving us a good lead. We swopped Glory and Ailsa in, to try to even it up, but our passing was good and we managed to get the ball to Glory, who also proved to be a good shooter. She scored two. So Cargilfield led the half 5:0. As Belhaven were a little tired we decided to mix the girls up and we played a blue team against a red team. What fun we had! The blue team won in the end, with Alice scoring two and Belhaven’s Iris one. It was a nice way to finish a fun afternoon of netball.

I was very pleased to see both Cargilfield teams working hard on their marking. It is definitely getting better. Well done, girls!
