U9A v Copthill and Grantham
The U9 A's travelled to Copthill on Wednesday in their first competitive matches against Copthill and Grantham. St Hugh's played brilliantly against Grantham, moving the ball up and down the court well and gaining some positive shooting opportunities.
Against Copthill, the St Hugh's girls stepped up their game, intercepting balls all over the court and communicating well. After some beautiful movement up the court from WA and C, a simple ball was sent to GS who aimed, shot and successfully scored the first goal of the game. The opposition was extremely evenly matched, equalising in the final few minutes, ending the game with a 1-1 draw.
U9B v Coptill and Grantham
The U9B team travelled to Coptill school for their first netball game of the season. It saw them play in two matches against Coptill and Grantham. The girls showed great determination and character throughout both matches, with some excellent attacking and defensive play. The first match was won by our girls 4-1, with the second game a goaless draw versus Grantham.
A special mention to Peyia (GA) who performed brilliantly showing off her defensive skills and spacial awareness. The girls communicated well and Freya, our captain for the day, led the girls throughout both games. Even when the positions were changed in the second game, the girls didn’t let this affect them and continued to show off some great passing and movement sequences.
Well done girls on your first competitive games of the netball season! Let’s hope this continues.
