Year 3’s first netball match!
The Year 3’s travelled to Derwent Lodge for their first ever match! It was bitterly cold but luckily once we arrived we were told we were in the sports hall, much to players and spectators relief.
After much training all the girls in Year 3 were divided into two teams for the match. The Yellow team were up first, it took some time for our girls to settle. They went 1-0 down quite quickly but this did not deter The Granville girls! With some strong passes and some fantastic inceptions from defence, the team started to get into their stride. Attack worked really hard to get the ball into the shooters, The Granville began to take control. We managed to get two goals in the first half, taking the lead. The team had to hold their nerve in the second half and try and intercept the ball from Derwent Lodge. The girls played really well and scored again making the final score 3-2.
The Blue team were very excited to play having watched the Yellow team win. The girls took on the challenge and showed their competitive spirit and desire to win. They played some great netball and took control of the game. With some fantastic shooting the girls scored four goals! Defence played really well, marking tightly and gaining possession they managed to keep the ball out of the shooting circle. Well done girls, 4-0 win.
